3 Reasons For Alternative Investments
There are three core reasons why institutional investors will continue to pour money into alternatives, according to a new report on the sector. These are diversification, protection against volatility and seeking non-correlated returns.
They are revealed in the annual Russell Investments Survey on Alternative Investing report which is based on interviews with 146 institutions totaling more than $1.1 trillion in assets across North America, Europe, Australia and Japan.
The survey found respondents cited diversification and shelter from volatility as main reasons for investment into the sector, leading Russell to anticipate rising allocations during the next three years.
