BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire -02/22/12)- Currensee (www.currensee.com), the industry's first foreign exchange (Forex) alternative investment service, today announced that Adantia LLC -- one of Future Magazine's "Hot New CTAs" and a BarclayHedge "Top Currency Trader" -- has been selected as a Trade Leader, Currensee's elite network of emerging Forex managers. Via the Trade Leaders™ Investment Program, retail and institutional investors can create diversified "funds of Forex fund" portfolios by copy trading select Trade Leaders based on their track records, trading strategies and risk management practices. The Currensee Trade Leaders cumulatively outperform other popular investments such as the S&P 500, Gold and the Barclay CTA Index over the last year.
Less than 2 percent of applicants qualify to become Trade Leaders, following the strict due diligence process that Currensee deploys involving rigorous assessment, testing and monitoring of each applicant's performance. Consequently, this elite group is comprised of high-caliber, industry-regulated expert traders. Adantia joins other professional Trade Leaders recruited to the program, including Janus Trading and Joiny Jiang.
Adantia has been trading client accounts using the Foreign Exchange Volatility Strategy for almost two years. This is a fully automated strategy that attempts to take advantage of a particular currency pair as it stretches away from a mean and then reverts back to the mean. Adantia automatically allocates capital dynamically across positions in the EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD and USD/CAD.

"The success of the Currensee investment service is anchored in the quality of the Trade Leaders. As we expand our service to financial institutions and their clients, it's critical that we attract the highest quality, regulated emerging managers such as Adantia," said Currensee CEO Dave Lemont. "Copy trading demands trust in the strategy and experience of the trader, so we put to work a highly rigorous due diligence process to verify the experience and credentials of our Trade Leaders."
For the six month period ending Dec. 31, 2011, the Trade Leaders averaged a 31-percent cumulative return compared to the S&P 500, which returned -5 percent.
