On October 7, 2013, Bloomberg reported in an article “How Investors Lose 89 Percent of Gains From Futures Funds,” which questioned the benefits of managed futures funds. According to Bloomberg, data gathered from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 89 percent of the gains in dozens of managed-futures funds were used to pay fees, commissions and expenses, rather than being returned to investors.

Jake Zamansky, securities fraud attorney, believes that the risks associated with managed futures funds far exceed the benefits for many investors. In view of the fees charged, he states, the managers and sellers of the fund benefit from the risks taken by the investors. This type of investment product is not suitable for many investors, and should be carefully reviewed before an investment is made, Zamansky states.
