Alternative investing may make sense for investors who are interested in diversifying their portfolios. We believe that the better returns come from having a mix of investments across different asset classes. This investing management philosophy allows us to give our clients the opportunity to explore options outside of traditional equity and fixed income investments while building wealth.

What are Alternatives?

In broad terms, an alternative investment is anything that doesn’t fall into one of the categories of stocks, bonds or cash. Alternative investing is the umbrella term for investments in alternative asset classes or for alternative strategies for investing.

Alternative asset classes are tied to something that is real or tangible.
Some examples of alternative asset classes are:

Real Estate
Private Equity
Private Debt

Alternative strategies are investment management techniques that are more unconventional than mainstream investing. Some examples of alternative strategies are:

Market Neutral
Managed Futures
Global Macro
Event-driven Arbitrage

Benefits of Alternative Investing

Alternative investments tend to move in different directions than the traditional stock and bond markets. That’s what makes them a good tool for portfolio diversification. During times of market distress alternative investments aren’t usually moving downward with the markets. The reduced volatility can make alternative investments less risky for our clients.

Alternative investing is a long-term strategy for wealth management.  It can help investors hedge against rising interest rates or inflation.

Three common alternative investments are:

Real Estate Investment Trusts
Structured Products
Private Equity Funds

The strategies employed in the management of alternative investments may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
