About Equinox Funds
At Equinox Funds, we are pioneers in developing investor-friendly alternatives, such as the first multi-strategy managed futures mutual fund. We started with managed futures because we believe they are the single most powerful diversifier for a portfolio of stocks and bonds. But we’ve also moved into other alternative assets such as hedged equities, which can potentially help reduce risk and enhance the returns of an overall portfolio over time.
With a deep research culture, our mission is to bring the potential benefits of alternatives to institutions and individuals by offering diverse investment strategies that can help meet the unique goals of each investor, including:
