Straits Financial Premier (Offshore Feeder) Fund I, Ltd. Press Release

Dec 15, 2014

Chicago, Illinois-- Straits Financial Fund Management LLC ("SFFM"), a commodity pool operator (“CPO”) registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") and a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"), is pleased to announce today the launch of the Straits Financial Premier (Offshore Feeder) Fund I, Ltd., which is the company's first managed pool offering for non-U.S. investors. 

SFFM, together with other subsidiaries under Straits Financial Group ("SF Group"), offers a wide range of services, including execution, brokerage, clearing and electronic trading, which provide clients with a gateway to trade at the world’s leading futures exchanges.  SF Group is the brokering division of CWT Limited, one of the largest publicly-listed logistics companies in South East Asia.

SFFM created the Offshore Feeder Fund to provide an opportunity for non-U.S. institutional and other investors to invest in a professionally managed futures fund.  A parallel fund, the Straits Financial Premier (U.S. Feeder) Fund I, L.P. is being offered to U.S. investors.  Each Fund will conduct its investing through a Master Fund, the Straits Financial Premier Fund I, Ltd.

Offered in relatively small investing amounts, the Fund will enable investor participation in alternative investment strategies, which has been recognized as a component of a diversified and balanced investment portfolio.  We believe that the Fund’s trading program will be uncorrelated to equities, bonds or other alternative investments and will allow exposure to liquid, transparent markets through an experienced, licensed commodity trading advisor.

"Offering the Fund is a natural next step for Straits" said Joseph Mazurek, SFFM President. "We believe that it meets the investing requirements of Straits' current customers. and it will be an attractive offering to the global community.  We are pleased to now present this product."

Adds SF Group CEO Jeremy Ang, "Straits Financial Group offers exchange-cleared futures and other specialized investment products.  Having a new offering like the Fund allows the Group to support our customers in their investment choices."

SFFM is a member of the CWT Limited group of companies.  For more information on the Fund including all Fund investment material, please visit www.straitsffm.com.
