Welcome to IMFC Managed Futures
The information contained herein is intended for use by qualified eligible clients as defined in CFTC Regulation 4.7. Futures, forward and options trading is speculative, involves substantial risk and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. This information is not a solicitation for investment. Such investment is offered on the basis of information and representations made in the appropriate offering documentation.
Please read the following statement
The risk of loss in trading commodities can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.
In some cases, managed commodity accounts are subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for those accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets. The Offering Document contains a complete description of the Principal Risk Factors and each fee to be charged to your account by the Commodity Trading Advisor (“CTA”).
In considering whether to trade or to authorize someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following: if you purchase a commodity option you may sustain a total loss of the premium and of all transaction costs.
If you purchase or sell a commodity future or sell a commodity option you may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain your position. If the market moves against your position, you may be called upon by your broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position. If you do not provide the requested funds within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account.
Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market makes a “limit move”. The placement of contingent orders by you or your trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. A “spread” position may not be less risky than a simple “long” or “short” position.
This communication is not and under no circumstances is to be construed as an invitation to make an investment in any IMFC Program or Fund nor does it constitute a public offering to sell a Program or Fund. Applications for IMFC Programs or Funds will only be considered on the terms set out in the Offering Document (for U.S. resident investors ) or Offering Documents (for Canada-resident investors). Terms defined in the Offering Document and Offering Documents shall have the same meaning in this material. Potential investors should note that alternative investments can involve significant risks and the value of the investment may go down as well as up.
There is no guarantee of trading performance and past performance is not indicative of future results. Investors should review the Offering Document and Offering Documents in their entirety for a complete description of IMFC Programs and Funds. An investment should only be made after consultation with independent qualified sources of investment and tax advice. The information contained in this material is subject to change without notice and IMFC will not be held liable for any inaccuracies or misprints.
There are risks associated with an investment in the Programs or Funds, as a result of, among other considerations, the proposed nature and operations of the Programs and Funds. An investment in a Program or Fund is speculative and involves a high degree of risk and is not intended as a complete investment program. It should be borne in mind that risks involved in this type of investment are greater than those normally associated with other types of investments. There is a risk that an investment in a Program or Fund will be lost entirely or in part. Only investors who do not require immediate liquidity of their investment and who can reasonably afford a substantial impairment or loss of their entire investment should consider investment in a Program or Fund. Capitalized terms not defined in this document are defined as set forth in the Offering Documents and Offering Documents.
The regulations of the commodity futures trading commission (“CFTC”) require that prospective clients of a CTA receive an offering document when they are solicited to enter into an agreement whereby the CTA will direct or guide the client’s commodity interest trading and that certain risk factors be highlighted. This document is readily available from IMFC or your Financial Advisor. This brief statement cannot disclose all of the risks.
Therefore, you should obtain the offering document and study it carefully to determine whether such trading is appropriate for you in light of your financial condition. You will not incur any additional charges by accessing the offering document. You may request delivery of a hard copy of the offering document, which will be provided to you at no cost.
The CFTC has not passed upon the merits of participating in this trading program nor on the adequacy or accuracy of the offering document. IMFC may only provide Commodity Trading Services in jurisdictions where IMFC is appropriately licensed and / or permitted by law. We are required to provide other disclosure statements to you before a commodity account may be opened for you.

Your Privacy is Our Priority
Why and How We Collect Personal Information
When you apply for or maintain an account that will be managed by IMFC, we collect personal information about you for business purposes, such as evaluating your financial needs, processing your requests and transactions, informing you about products and services that may be of interest to you, and providing customer service. The personal information we collect about you includes:
- information you provide to us on applications and other forms provided by IMFC or the clearing firms. This information may include your name, address, date of birth, social security number, occupation, assets and income;
- information about your transactions with us and with our affiliates;
- information we may receive from consumer reporting agencies, such as your credit history and creditworthiness, and other entities not affiliated with IMFC;
- and information you may provide to us to verify your identity, such as government issued photo identification, or received from other entities not affiliated with IMFC.
How We Protect Personal Information
We limit access to your personal information to those employees who need to know in order to conduct our business, service your account, and help you accomplish your financial objectives, such as providing you with a broad range of products and services. Our employees are required to maintain and protect the confidentiality of your personal information and must follow established procedures to do so. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. We do not rent or sell your name or personal information to anyone. No client will be permitted to review other clients’ records.
IMFC does not disclose any nonpublic personal information about its clients to anyone, except as permitted or required by law. For example, IMFC expects to enter into an agreement with an external compliance consulting firm to compile performance data for IMFC’s Trading Programs. Although IMFC retains all client records under strict confidentiality, IMFC would provide client records (e.g., daily and month end commodity statements generated by the FCM) to the external consultants for purposes of compiling performance data in accordance with CFTC and NFA Requirements. At times, IMFC may be required to furnish complete client records to regulators, legal counsel, courts of competent jurisdiction, or other entities as deemed necessary by IMFC or required by law. In addition, IMFC may be required to furnish tax information to the Internal Revenue Service in the United States.
