Alternative Investments

Alternative investments are sometimes used as a tool to reduce overall investment risk through diversification.

Some of the typical characteristics of alternative investments include:

  • Low correlation with traditional financial investments such as stocks and bonds
  • Alternative investments may be relatively illiquid
  • It may be difficult to determine the current market value of the asset
  • There may be limited historical risk and return data
  • A high degree of investment analysis may be required before buying
  • Costs of purchase and sale may be relatively high

We offer comprehensive training within Alternative Investments:
