"Four Ways Alternatives can Optimize a Portfolio"

Having learned a hard lesson from the 2007-2009 market downturn, financial professionals are tempering future risk by diversifying portfolios with non-correlated alternative investments.

Yesterday’s “sensible” blend of bonds, equities and cash isn’t necessarily considered a well-diversified portfolio by financial advisors today.

In fact, the report indicates that alternative investments are expected to surpass $21 trillion by 2025 and reach 15% of global assets under management.

The bottom line is that many investors are looking for portfolios that can weather volatility, compound wealth and fund specific goals.
