Embracing alternatives

A look at what we offer in the alternatives space UBS Asset Management

27 Nov 2017

Investors today are faced with a unique set of challenges as markets grapple with regime change, central bank policy normalization and low interest rates. As a result, sophisticated investors are seeking alternative sources to attempt to bolster returns.

We believe the attractiveness of alternatives lies in their potential ability to exploit additional sources of return, e.g. illiquidity premia or short-selling, while historically exhibiting low correlation to traditional asset classes. At UBS Asset Management, we provide investors with a broad range of alternative investment solutions that span the liquidity spectrum, including hedge funds (single and multi-manager), real estate, infrastructure and private equity.

As one of the largest managers in alternatives, we have a unique vantage point in the market, and seek to leverage our insights to add value. For a look at what we offer clients in the alternatives space, the brochure, "Embracing Alternatives", provides an overview of our core businesses and capabilities.
