Alternatives - a timely opportunity
Given heightened volatility in equity markets and lower yields in fixed income, today’s market environment means investors need to consider non-traditional investment opportunities to meet their investment objectives.
Alternative investments are now being considered by more investors as an option that can offer both diversification* and relatively attractive yield opportunities. Alternatives cover a broad range of assets spanning real estate, infrastructure, transport, private equity, private credit, liquid alternatives and hedge funds.
Alternatives in a world of low yields
As alternatives can behave differently to traditional assets, they can provide relatively attractive yield# opportunities in the current ultra-low interest rate environment.
Alternative sources of income
Alternatives for uncorrelated returns
Generally, alternative investments have a low correlation to traditional assets such as equities and bonds and can offer diversification benefits to an overall portfolio. Increasingly, investors are looking to invest in strategies built to deliver uncorrelated returns to traditional asset classes. Even within alternatives, one asset can behave differently from another, providing additional diversification.
