ABSTRACT
The article highlights that to be a successful money manager, commodity trading advisors (CTA) and commodity pool operators must realize that they are running a business. A robust and profitable trading strategy or years of fundamental trading expertise is not enough to ensure success. If a manager's regulatory and back office ducks are not in a row, he will have a hard time surviving regardless of trading prowess. At the heart of the back office operation is the reconciliation of trades. The CTA's back office must ensure that flow of trade documentation moves smoothly and correct any errors along the way.
