Alternative Investing

An alternative investment can take many forms, from an alternative asset class such as infrastructure, real estate or commodities, to an alternative investment approach like market neutral and long-short strategies. When applied effectively, alternatives can insulate a portion of a portfolio from the volatility of capital markets.
