In a market where interest rates are declining, investors are seeking more liquidity by investing in long-term alternatives, including hedge funds, real estate, private equity and other alternative funds.
Alternative investments are, however, not an easily defined, homogeneous type of investment. Here are a few examples of typical alternative investment products available in the market:
- Private Equity (Leveraged Buyout)
- Direct Investments (Real Estate, Infrastructure, Renewable Energy, Wine, Music, Art Patents)
- Hedge Funds (Long/Short, Global Macro, Quantitative)
Portfolio diversification with a strategic focus

The Alternative Investments Manager supports your portfolio diversification strategies.
