LOS ANGELES, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- World Finance magazine named Los Angeles-based Shinnecock Partners, an alternative investment management firm, the Best Managed Futures CTA Fund in North America as part of its annual Hedge Fund Awards. The World Finance awards were created in 2007 to identify industry leaders, individuals, teams and organizations that represent the benchmark of achievement and best practices in the financial and business worlds.
"Hedge funds and funds-of-funds alternatives play a critical role in portfolio diversification, and it's important that investors weigh the considerable value of diversified futures funds of funds that can bring long track records, low volatility, attractive returns and predictability at a time when investors need just that," said Alan Snyder, founder and managing partner of Shinnecock Partners. "This is an honor we are proud to share with our fund partners."
