Alternative investments

UBS’ collaboration with Envestnet, the largest independent advisor platform, and iCapital, a leader in providing modern digital access to alternative investments, will provide independent investment advisors and their clients with access to non-traditional alternative investment strategies and structures curated by UBS through a rigorous, robust and repeatable investment process across the liquidity spectrum.

To power the initiative, Envestnet launched the Alternatives Exchange, a new solution designed to help independent investment advisors on their platform access alternative investments, leveraging iCapital’s turnkey technology through single-sign-on access. This access includes a fully digital subscription process to assist advisors with compliance and provide real-time access to all investment-related documents and reports through its document center.

Alternative investment solutions offer exposure to different risk and return characteristics when compared to traditional assets, and can be grouped into several categories:

  • Private Equity - Invest in non-public companies and participate in smaller, illiquid, and exclusive transactions through strategies including venture capital, leveraged buyout, and special situations.
  • Private Credit - Invest in the debt of non-public companies, including through direct lending and distressed debt funds. UBS is an innovator in debt capital and equity-like solutions along the capital structure, with an integrated approach to debt funding that includes optimizing derivative solutions.
  • Private Real Estate - Invest in commercial real estate, residential real estate and debt while seeking value through operational workouts and price appreciation, which can provide steady income or potential capital appreciation with low volatility.
  • Hedge Funds- Actively managed portfolios covering numerous strategies, market exposures and risk/return profiles that are generally not available to long-only stock and bond investors.
