Alternative investments have grown steadily in the last 30 years with investors taking to this diversified universe to improve income and achieve return objectives.
As macro challenges and market volatility are likely to continue in 2022, returns from public markets will remain lower than historic averages.
Adding alternative asset classes to your portfolios can help navigate difficult times and will remain relevant across cycles.
At UBS Asset Management, our multi-disciplinary teams bring you independent thinking and ideas in alternative investing.
These ideas span across our infrastructure, real estate and hedge funds.
Alternative investments are sometimes called private asset classes because they are not publicly listed in markets.
We can divide the alternative universe into private capital investments and other strategic investments.
