Alternative investments are complex and require professional knowledge and experience in understanding all the opportunities in the market. As its name implies, the field of alternative investments consists of investments that provide an alternative to traditional investments, such as bonds, shares, exchange-traded notes, etc. Many alternative funds are raising capital and the options are diverse. Objective’s alternative investment guide contains a glossary and an explanation of the types of funds.
The alternative market has developed greatly in recent years, and the number of alternative funds has been increasing, mainly in areas such as credit, real estate, infrastructure and more, in both local and international markets. Demand by investors has also been growing, out of a desire to diversify the investment portfolio and spread risks.
The popularity of alternative investments is gaining momentum as traditional investments become more volatile due to a high correlation with the global economic situation and the rapid effects of speculators. On the other hand, alternative investments have a low correlation with traditional investments and therefore they form an investment channel that balances the portfolio and hedges the risks involved therein.
Objective makes the information accessible and accompanies you in the decision-making process
As opposed to public investments, which provide a large amount of accessible information, alternative investments are characterized by complexity, lack of information and a diverse range of investment channels. The difference between alternative funds, even between those engaged in the same field, is very wide, and thus it is highly important to acquire knowledge and complete understanding prior to making the investment.
