Alternative Investments

Alternative investments help to diversify a portfolio comprised of traditional asset types such as stocks, bonds, and cash. Alternative investments add diversity to a portfolio because they perform differently than these traditional asset categories in response to economic conditions. Most alternative investment assets are held by institutional investors or accredited, high-net-worth who are presumed to be sophisticated enough to understand their risks. Alternative investments are usually quite difficult to analyze and may lack liquidity. There may be limited historical risk and return data for investors to analyze.
