Investment Alternatives

Liquid alternatives

Alternative forms of investment are those that seek to deliver uncorrelated sources of return other than those more frequently termed as traditional investments such as equities, bonds and cash. As markets have become less predictable, investor strategies seek further diversification through investment classes that are negatively correlated to traditional assets classes and are therefore unaffected by the same market conditions.

Flexible trading philosophy

The nature of alternative investment strategy dictates that management is proactive to encourage asset flexibility that encourages long/short trading positions. Specifically in the case of equity-driven alternative assets, management will look to capitalize on market inefficiencies and therefore demand that assets can be moved rapidly to maximize exposure.

In the same manner, capital positions must maintain attributes of liquidity to enable a shift in strategy, whether moving towards attractive opportunities or away from emerging threats.
