Money Manager Hurt by MF Global Bankruptcy Announces Special Strategy to Adapt and Recover

LAFAYETTE, LA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - TYL Trading, LLC, a managed futures firm focused on applying an adaptive trading model to diverse global markets, has announced a new business strategy to recover from the devastating effects of the MF Global bankruptcy. Beginning July 24, 2012, qualified investors may access TYL Trading's Blend Diversified Program, which launched in August 2005, without incurring any incentive fees. The program's management fee will remain at 1.5% per annum based on the account balance.

"Just as we believe that the most adaptive trading models are those most likely to survive and prosper, TYL has adopted a creative strategy to help investors hurt by the MF Global bankruptcy recover and also to provide a lower priced opportunity for unaffected qualified investors (high net worth individuals, family offices, funds of funds, institutions)," commented Conway P. Geoffroy, TYL's principal and portfolio manager. He added, "We have decided to apply this investor opportunity to the next $25 million of aggregate commitments to our Blend Diversified Program."

TYL's Blend Diversified Program was recognized among the "Top 15 Managed Futures Programs -- Overall" through year-end 2011, based on rankings selected from a universe of 300 CTAs in Attain Capital's most recent Semi-Annual CTA Rankings (as of February 7, 2012).*

This program's adaptable trading approach has resulted in profitable performance during periods of both trending and non-trending markets. For example, in 2008 the majority of Blend Diversified Program's returns were earned from trend following signals, while in 2009, a trading environment lacking longer term price trends, the program's contra-trend and swing trading signals resulted in a positive annual return.
