Introduction to alternative mutual funds.
Professionals know what tools to use and when to use them. So why would you want to manage your client’s money without having all the tools available at your disposal. You probably don't, but a majority of mutual funds today don’t allow their managers to use many of the investment tools available to them.
Alternative mutual funds change this paradigm. These new tools are designed to provide investors with diversified sources of risk and return that are not found in traditional mutual funds. They do this by using the same sophisticated investment strategies that have been deployed in hedge funds for many years, but do so with the liquidity, transparency and high level of governance associated with mutual funds.
Alternative mutual funds not only give portfolio managers the freedom to use a wide range of investment tools and techniques, but they also allow them to more fully implement their best investment ideas.
