Alternative Assets & Hedge Funds

Some major alternative assets include hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, direct property/real estate, direct infrastructure, currency funds, commodities, art, antiquities and wine.

Characteristics of Alternative Assets

An alternative asset class is normally considered to be alternative if it has a couple of the following characteristics:

  • Its investment performance has little if any correlation with other more traditional asset classes.
  • The investment process may predominantly use derivatives to implement the strategies.
  • The strategy objective may seek an absolute return rather than track or out-perform a particular index.
  • The portfolio positions may be less transparent than those of traditional asset classes.
  • The underlying investments may be less liquid (that is, lower ability to buy and sell the investments readily at a fair price).
  • The fund manager may charge performance fees as an incentive to produce competitive performance.
