Attain Capital Management is a Chicago-based, specialized asset management firm that focuses on alternative investment solutions for portfolios such as managed futures. Attain offers managed futures and trading systems brokers as well as financial advisers and consulting services. [1]

Attain also offers a free managed futures newsletter service, where the company has been increasingly vocal about the bankruptcies, and subsequent shortfalls in customer funds, of MF Global and PFGBest.[2]

In July of 2014, the company's subsidiary Attain Portfolio Advisors launched a new Alternative Investment Family of Funds providing access through a single platform to several commodities-based alternative investment managers. It launched a new web site in tandem at www.attainfunds.com.

History

As of 2012, Attain has six registered brokers and manages $204 million. Attain is a CFTC registered independent introducing broker and a member of both the NFA and the Managed Futures Association.
