We believe the attractiveness of alternatives lies in their ability to provide access to stable, long-term income with returns that are uncorrelated to traditional asset classes. UBS Asset Management is one of the largest managers in alternatives, giving us a distinct vantage point in the market with the ability to provide investors access to private assets and add value to a diversified portfolio.
