Alternative Investment Solutions

Efficient access to alternative asset classes

With our Alternative Investment Solutions (AIS) capabilities we provide our institutional clients with efficient investment access to alternative asset classes through direct investing or investing with the fund managers we believe are best-in-class.

    Overcoming barriers to entry with our consulting-led approach

    We adopt a consulting-led approach designed to construct and manage the right alternative investment portfolio to meet specific investor needs and preferences, including regarding target risk and return, liquidity profile and sustainability criteria.
    Given market conditions, investors are increasingly looking to alternative investments to capture non-traditional risk premia and skill and offer a degree of investment risk mitigation by diversifying away traditional market risk.

    However, barriers to entry can seem high for investors trying to make and maintain these investments themselves. 

    We enable investors to overcome these barriers by bringing together – in (single-point-of-access) or (turnkey) alternative investment solutions – the skillsets, experience and industry relationships of our in-house specialists across:
    • strategic consulting;
    • private markets and real asset manager research, selection, access and fee negotiation;
    • asset sourcing, due-diligence and deal execution;
    • sustainability;
    • portfolio and solution construction
    • risk and liquidity management; and
    • client service and reporting.

    An innovative, differentiated offering

    We focus on specific segments of the alternative investment space.  We believe our specialist experience, expertise and approach give us competitive edge, scalability and enables us to deliver differentiated, innovative Alternative Investment Solutions for our clients. Examples of the alternative investment exposures we were able to give our clients access to include:
  • Farmland 
  • (Unlisted) real estate and infrastructure;
  • European mid-market private equity  and
  • Global impact investing
  • Our specialties in the field of Alternative Investment Solutions


    Global investment in sustainable agricultural land, an attractive and relatively untapped asset class, helps to improve biodiversity. This is essential for good water and air quality, causes less harm to the environment and produces healthier food. Agricultural land can be viewed as a complementary investment that offers various options in terms of regions and the degree of sustainability. Investing in sustainable agricultural land enables you to make an immediate tangible impact.

    Unlisted real estate

    The private property market is opaque and inefficient. Decisions on regions and sectors play an important role in private real estate, which enjoys a low correlation with other asset classes. We use sophisticated global data analysis at individual property level to make a sound case for our selection and valuation of the portfolios of property fund managers.

    Alternative Debt

    Alternative, non-listed credit investments can earn additional return by taking advantage of illiquidity and complexity premiums. Movements on traditional bond markets have little impact here. This asset class contains different types of debt instruments, such as distressed debt, structured credit and direct lending, and is part of the fixed income portion of the portfolio.


    We also offer alternative investments in infrastructure, mid-market European private equity and global impact investing, including at a local level.
