Alternative Investment Solutions - AIS

Control in a complex environment

Institutional investors now have a seemingly endless choice of alternative assets; liquid and illiquid, tangible and intangible, mainstream and increasingly esoteric. And while choice is fundamentally a good thing, the increased governance and risk-management burden that comes with this level of complexity can deter investors from embracing the full potential that these assets offer.

Our new consultancy-led service has been created to address this issue, offering highly tailored portfolio solutions within a robust governance framework Alternative Investment Solutions – AIS

Optimising alternatives

A new consultancy-led service offering tailored advice within a robust governance framework

Why Alternatives?

1. Enhancing returns

✓ Harvest an illiquidity premium
✓ Most alternative investments have an Income component and stable cashflows
✓ Often a claim on physical assets, indirectly related to inflation compensation

2. Improving diversification

✓ Less sensitive to market corrections
✓ Diverse set of risk/return drivers compared to traditional investments
✓ Wider opportunity set

3. Possibility to embed sustainability

✓ Influence and control over sustainability factors
✓ ESG integration possible throughout the supply chain
✓ Impact Investing


Moving into the investment mainstream

Alternative assets continue to move into the investment mainstream. The following chart shows the volume increase of alternative assets over the past 22 years during which time their popularity has not waned, in spite of some challenging market events.  With AUM in alternatives currently at record highs we believe these assets will continue on this growth trajectory or may even accelerate in the future.

Challenges of investing in alternatives

Navigating Complexities

It’s a daunting task to select the alternative asset class that best fit your investment criteria & current portfolio

Choosing the right manager

Return dispersion is larger, the fees are higher, and you are locked up for longer compared to liquid investments

Integrating sustainability

Sustainability has low priority and is badly integrated in the investment process at most alternative investment managers

Staying in control

Low-quality reporting, complexity of closed-end funds and the inability to trade makes investors feel lost after investing

Alternative Credit

Alternative, non-listed credit investments can earn additional return by taking advantage of illiquidity and complexity premiums. This asset class contains many types of debt instruments such as distressed debt, structured credit and direct lending.

Capital at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance provides no guarantee for the future.

The costs for this proposition are dependent of the advice you’ll receive. Please contact us in case you would like to know more.
