Fusion Equities, a New Managed Futures Stock Index Program from County Cork Receives BarclayHedge Award


County Cork LLC, a Commodity Trading Advisor offering multiple managed futures programs announces Fusion Equities, a new, short-term, automated, systematic program for trading E-mini S&P stock index futures on the CME Group’s Globex platform. The Fusion Equities program adds a short term, systematic, absolute return strategy to County Cork’s roster of both fundamental discretionary and systematic commodity programs.

In its initial 10 months of live trading (October 2013-July 2014), the Fusion Equities program generated a total net return of 21% equating to a compounded return of 28% annualized versus 4% annualized for the Newedge CTA Index. This return earned it recognition as a Top 10 performing Stock Index managed futures program for the month of July in the BarclayHedge CTA Database.

“We are proud to offer Fusion Equities to investors based on the same foundation, organizational stability, and legacy that has become synonymous with County Cork,” said County Cork LLC founder, Robert J. O’Brien, Jr. “The Fusion Equities systematic managed futures program further diversifies our offerings to investors with the potential to create stabile returns while minimizing risk.”

The Fusion Equities trading program uses multiple discrete computer models to enter and exit both long and short positions in stock index futures contracts. These positions are short-term in nature and are exited by the end of each trading day making it a cash-effective alternative investment that complements an existing portfolio of traditional or CTA investments.

The Futures Equities program is only available for professional investors and Qualified Eligible Persons (QEP) as defined in Rule 4.7 of the Commodity Exchange Act.
