Many investors have discovered that their traditional equity and bond portfolios correlated much more strongly than they expected. In the current period of low interest rates, the use of bonds to diversify equity price risks is becoming less attractive. There remain very few situations in which they make a positive contribution to returns.
Are you looking for new sources of return apart from equities and bonds?
Liquid Alternatives offer market-neutral returns. They combine alpha-driven strategies with alternative sources of income and dynamic risk approaches.
Are you seeking to make your portfolio more robust and ensure that it can still handle risk?
Liquid Alternatives allow you to add asymmetric risk/return profiles to your portfolio and diversify more efficiently.
Would you like to use strategies that exploit opportunities dynamically?
A rigorous selection process determines which alpha strategies make it into the portfolio. The decisive factors are persistence, transparency and cost efficiency.
Do you need strategies that deliver stable returns and actively manage risks of loss?
Volatile individual strategies are beneficial when positive diversification effects arise and for portfolio-level drawdowns can be reduced.
"Best in class" strategies from third-party managers from the Liquid Alternative and smart beta segment.
Long-term value growth, independent of market phase, with simultaneous management of overall risk, in particular reduction of volatility and tail risk.
