Diversifying beyond traditional asset classes.

Why should clients consider Alternatives?

The Global Financial Crisis (GFC) permanently changed investors’ perceptions of important concepts such as diversification and correlation. The Covid-19 pandemic reasserted these concerns after a period of comparative stability. Extraordinary monetary policy measures implemented by central banks around the world – following both crises – continue to skew investment returns and tighten the relationships between equities, bonds and other risky assets, making diversification harder to achieve than ever before.

Despite this, investors still retain long-term ambitions to generate income and/or capital growth, but there is now much greater awareness of the importance of protecting their money from market falls and creating genuine diversification. Alternatives can help investors to build robust portfolios to withstand a range of different market environments.

What is Alternatives at Brownstein Capital?
