A Letter From Shira Pacult

Managed Futures | Managed Funds | Commodity Pools | Futures Investment Company, 2 Sept 2010 [cached]
Mrs. Pacult graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, at Berkeley, in 1979.
From 1981 to 1983 she was employed by Heinold Commodities, Inc., Chicago, IL, to assist in the development of the Commodity Options Department.
Shira Pacult Co-Founder
While at Heinold, she became a senior account executive and a member of the President's Council; a select group of appointed to advise the firm on all matters of business practice.
Mrs. Pacult is registered both as a futures and stock broker. She has passed the necessary principals and sales exams to be qualified to handle client accounts.
At the core of Mrs. Pacult's philosophy is a belief in the importance for all investors, who have the capital and temperament, to participate in managed futures - not just high net worth clients.
In the beginning of this decade, as the stock brokerage industry continued to sell stocks aggressively though a bearish market in which the stock market fundamentals did not support it, the investing public lost trillions of the dollars in customer assets. Now, the net worth of many investors has declined and the focus of stock brokerage firms has been redirected toward the high net worth client.
Mrs. Pacult's efforts have always been directed toward treating all investors equally. She specializes in providing access to professional commodity trading advisors (CTAs) who can trade for clients on the retail level, giving both novice and veteran investors the potential to profit in the futures markets.
The niche that she fills for her clients is in the selection and monitoring of professional CTAs, and to help those clients diversify their portfolios into quality managed futures products.
Mrs. Pacult's ideology is that everyone be on the same team. Her goal is to see each client do well in the markets. She works with them as an educator, willing to spend the time to answer their questions and concerns.
Futures are complex markets. They are highly leveraged and have risk. Mrs. Pacult focuses her clients on the positive, as well as the negative, aspects of managed futures investments, so that when they see their account, they have a firm understanding of its activity.
She takes tremendous pride in having dedicated over 26 years to providing access to serious, disciplined money managers, and explaining how managed futures work to potential clients. With the same dedication and effort, she continues to service existing clients who want to diversify their portfolio in futures, understand what they are doing, and continue to be an investor in the short-term and long-term potential that this investment medium offers.
While there are no guarantees, in working with Mrs. Pacult you will be assured that her knowledge, experience and diligence will also be working for you.
