Altegris Advisors has launched the Altegris Macro Strategy Fund, which it is characterizing as the “ultimate go-anywhere fund.”
“Of all the investment strategies, global macro stands alone as the most flexible and opportunistic,” said Jon Sundt, president and CEO of Altegris and co-portfolio manager of the fund. “Global macro managers assume that somewhere in the world, there’s an opportunity. The Altegris Macro Strategy Fund allows investors to participate in what we believe is an ultimate ‘go-anywhere’ macro approach to investing.”
