AXS Managed Futures Strategy Fund Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Long and Strong Track Record

First Diversified Managed Futures Mutual Fund Reaches Milestone as a Differentiated, Award-Winning Fund

NEW YORK, January 15, 2020 – AXS Investments, a leading alternative investment manager, celebrated the 10th anniversary of the AXS Managed Futures Strategy Fund on December 31, 2019. The Fund was the first mutual fund to offer investors a diversified portfolio of leading futures trading programs with the objective of seeking capital appreciation in both rising and falling equity markets.

The Fund also received a Managed Futures Pinnacle Award in 2019 as the Best Multi-Advisor Managed Futures Fund, which was presented by CME Group and BarclayHedge to recognize excellence exclusively in the managed futures space.
“AXS Investments has always been committed to creating access for investors to alternative sources of returns to help enhance portfolio outcomes,” said Greg Bassuk, Chief Executive Officer of FS Investments. “AXS Managed Futures Strategy Fund’s long and strong track record is emblematic of our firm’s diversified, high-quality fund lineup, and underscores how managed futures can help investors participate in equity market upside and also protect against downside risk.”

The Fund was an innovation from the outset and still stands out in the managed futures category as a strong performer with virtually zero correlation to U.S. equities at 0.03. The Fund has consistently outperformed its benchmark, the Barclay BTOP50, for the trailing 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year periods as of year-end 2019.
