Alternative investments are professionally managed assets that typically have a low correlation to traditional public markets. This low correlation can create significant portfolio benefits through diversification and return enhancement. Alternative investments seek to capitalize on market inefficiencies while neutralizing the overall direction of the capital markets and interest rates. They utilize techniques and instruments that are not available in traditional investment products and are typically considered exclusive products.
