Focused. Disciplined. Innovative.
Welcome to Acorn Global Investments.
Acorn Global Investments, founded in 2005, is an alternative investment manager that identifies early stage opportunities in global futures markets. Acorn provides investors with a strategy that is uncorrelated to stocks, bonds and real estate.
Our research combines disruptive and unconventional thinking with a focus on producing practical and actionable innovations that adapt to changing global markets.
Whether it is wheat in Chicago, bonds in Rome, coffee in London, currencies in Auckland, oil in Tokyo or equities in New York, we search the world for opportunities that others often miss.
Top tier partners and infrastructure as well as ample liquidity, transparency, best practices and attention to detail provide our investors with a strong degree of comfort.
Traditional diversification often fails when investors need it most. True diversification is rare. We work hard to ensure that Acorn continues to act as a powerful portfolio diversifier.

Our Blog – Observations
The Acorn Diversified Program declined an estimated 5.72% in October.
October was a challenging month for our strategy as a number of markets experienced sideways action, reversals, or even reversals of reversals. We see an example of such action in the zinc chart below. Months like this have occurred in the past and will occur again in the future. With 118 months of results, this marks the 9th time that we have had a loss larger than 5%. Over the same period, we have had 20 monthly gains greater than 5%. Of course, the reality is that the process that produced the 9 losing months is the same as the process that produced the 20 winning months.
For the institutional investor, Acorn’s perspective on portfolio construction produces returns that are not highly correlated to our peers.
Advisors can provide their clients with the return and diversification benefits of our strategy in a direct and cost-effective way.
