One example of managed funds is a managed futures account. The biggest advantage of these accounts is that they are able to profit in any economic environment, thus diversifying your risk if you are essentially long in all your positions. If the market takes a dive, even if you are diversified thorough very different companies, you will likley lose money all around. Managed funds is one way to take some of that risk out of the picture.
