The following is a summary of the most important points of the disclosure document . Before we can do business, you will be required to review the entire disclosure document and sign that you have read it.

Brokerage Account

Clients will be required to have, or to open an account with a Futures Commission Merchant ("FCM") prior to commencing activities with GrowthPoint.  Clients may choose their own FCM with which they will maintain their accounts and may (but are not required) choose an introducing broker of their choice.

Trading Program

We make our trade decisions based on market indicators including the Volatility Index ("VIX"), how many days remain before contract expiration and other factors such as support and resistance levels.  Trades are typically classified as “Iron Condors” and variants thereof. These trades are classified as credit spreads and do not involve the sale of naked calls and puts. The key to the success of this system is very careful risk management. We do not day-trade or engage in market timing. We trade futures options on the following indexes: S&P, Down Jones Mini, DAX, FTSE, STOXX. Our current focus is exclusively on the S&P.



Our fees consist of two components: an annual management  fee and a performance fee. 
Both fees are based on net (post commission) profit.

Management Fee: 2%
Performance Fee: 20%

The management and performance fees are assessed and due on a monthly basis.  Invoices are submitted through your FCM.

For additional details on how fees are calculated and assessed, please refer to our disclosure document .

  The risk of loss in trading commodity futures and options can be substantial. Before trading, you should carefully consider your financial position to determine if futures trading is appropriate. When trading futures and/or options, it is possible to lose the full balance of your account. It is also possible to lose more than your initial deposit when trading futures and/or granting/writing options. As a result, selling/writing "naked" options exposes the seller/writer to the possibility of margin calls and virtually unlimited risk. All funds committed should be purely risk capital. Past performance is no guarantee of future trading results.

Account Minimums

The minimum investment is $100,000. The account minimum may be waived for a trial period.
