Alternative investments are nothing new, with institutional investors and high net worth individuals already placing funds and taking advantage of their flexibility. For many advisors the time has come to advise their clients to spread their investments and therefore minimise risk (when one market performs badly, another benefits). The volatility of the global economy in recent years has given a sense of optimism for the future of alternative investments. With some economies affected by the recession, we now see new alternative investment areas taking advantage.
Adding alternative investments to your product list allows you to not only secure more favourable returns for your clients but also increase your own revenue streams. By offering them opportunities in new investment vehicles it also allows you the chance to reignite the relationship you have with them.
The future of alternative investments and the role it plays within the economy is becoming clearer each year and with solid investment opportunities and good commission rates it is without doubt a great time for us all.
