What Makes Mega Capital Unique?
Can the productivity of your conventional assets be enhanced? The answer is Yes. Can you protect your conventional assets from the risk inherent in conventional markets? In our opinion, the answer is yes.
Mega Capital is unique among its industry peer group for three reasons. First and foremost is the Security Overlay Portfolio. Created by Doug Houser, the Security Overlay Portfolio is a very beneficial way to build additional incremental value in the managed futures markets. Using a client’s existing conventional assets to create a professionally managed futures portfolio enables an investor to fully maximize earnings potential with no additional commitment of funds. With the Security Overlay Portfolio your securities can simultaneously provide investment in conventional markets and in managed futures, with no additional cash outlay. The Security Overlay Portfolio allows you to potentially earn a greater return on assets, while providing additional diversity and defending your portfolio against excessive volatility.
Reason number two is Doug Houser, founder and president of Mega Capital. Doug personally structures and supervises your Security Overlay Portfolio. In creating your Security Overlay Portfolio, the objective to is to achieve a highly consistent and stable performance. Forty plus years in the industry and 20 plus years of managing investments for discriminating, high net worth clients means that your investment is guided by experience and objectivity. Mega Capital continually analyzes and evaluates the performance of hundreds of CTAs in order to identify only those futures traders whose performance is of an outstanding degree of reliability and success, using only those traders as fund advisors who meet Mega Capital’s exacting standards.
The third reason for its unique position as a managed futures advisor is that Doug Houser has been advising high net worth clients for more than 20 years, starting well before the current hot market in commodities. In more than two decades of service, he has established a track record of reliability and success among an international client base. His longevity and continued growth are built upon the deep and lengthy experience in managed futures markets that is required to understand and profit from the risks and rewards of commodities trading.
Doug Houser, President of Mega Capital, founded the company in 1997, after building a distinguished career of more than 10 years at Merrill Lynch, Shearson Lehman Brothers and Prudential. As an investment advisor and risk manager with an in-depth knowledge of commodities futures trading, Doug has built Mega Capital into a highly regarded managed commodities futures investment firm, attracting an international clientele of high net-worth investors. Mega Capital invited Mr. John Vassallo to join the firm in October of 2008 as a partner. John’s career as an energy futures specialist spans more than 20 years, from when he began as a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange. He is a member of the New York Mercantile Exchange, has served the futures industry through the National Futures Association (Board of Directors, Arbitrator, IB Advisory Committee, IB Nominating Committee), New York Mercantile Exchange Natural Gas Advisory Committee, New York Board of Trade new contract Advisory Committee, the Managed Futures Association (various committees), and the National Introducing Brokers Association (vice president, Board of Directors, various committees).
