FTM A Class
FTM is a dynamic investment product that places emphasis on capital preservation first and foremost while achieving consistent returns and maintaining low volatility. FTM achieves this by spreading investment risk between FX, Term Deposits and Capital Secured Investments. It is the culmination of a search for an investment portfolio that can provide consistent returns irrespective of market conditions.
The Global Financial Crisis clearly illustrated that investment classes were far more correlated than most investors had otherwise suspected. After the dramatic falls in global markets it was clear that traditional asset classes such as equities could not be counted on for diversification simply by means of geographical location. Both developed and emerging markets alike experienced large falls as did commodities and bonds.
There were however a select group of assets that were unaffected by the turmoil and this is what led to the creation of an investment product that could generate consistent returns irrespective of market conditions.

During the darkest days of the global financial crisis (GFC) one thought kept going through my mind. What if the only way to beat the market was to “Forget the Market?”. Honestly, just then all I wanted to do was forget the market.
So, I lay awake at night in a cold sweat, wondering what I could have done differently, with that same thought churning over and over in my mind “Forget the Market”! Seriously, I wanted nothing more than to get rid of that lump in my throat. To get out from under that elephant sitting on my chest as I went into the office.
Could it really be that simple? Was there really another way to invest? What if you could generate returns similar to the long-term market averages but without investing in the market? Was it even possible to contemplate such a crazy idea?
So I set out to examine every type of investment strategy I could find, to see what worked and also dug into what didn’t work and why. My mission was simple: to create an investment strategy that could match the market long term averages but not be at the mercy of them. One in which my friends, family and clients (that were still speaking to me), could invest in without sleepless nights and avoid these horrific market drops. It seemed really simple. All I had to do was not lose money so that any profits generated weren’t wasted on trying to claw back past losses. Oh, and I wanted it be capital secured too.
