Alternatives

Alternative investment strategies, such as hedge funds, may provide investors with valuable sources of potential return, powerful portfolio diversification and effective ways to manage downside risk.

Through our dedicated Alternative Investment Strategies capability, we seek to provide our clients with the most compelling opportunities that the asset class can offer to help meet their investment goals. .

Through our global network of industry relationships, and global research platform, we are able to connect with hard-to-access managers and strategies. Through disciplined portfolio construction we aim to combine best-in-class opportunities to target each client’s precise needs for return, volatility management and liquidity.

Key Benefits

The Alternative Investment Strategies team have been harnessing the potential of alternatives on behalf of clients for more than 20 years. Based in New York and London, the group covers the global universe of strategies and managers, conducting thousands of manager calls, meetings and visits every year.

Solutions can be delivered as customised portfolios, managed accounts, commingled funds and/or liquid fund structures. Or we can act as a strategic partner, providing research and due diligence to support a client’s own process.

We also manage our own range of alternative risk premia strategies, designed to provide exposure to many of the factors identified in hedge funds, but in a more transparent, liquid and cost efficient way.

Warning
Risk warning - Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
