Overview

Investing in Alternatives: From Portfolio Diversifiers to Return Enhancers

Alternatives are taking centre stage as institutions hunt for increased yield, uncorrelated returns and diversification outside traditional investments. Ongoing volatility and economic uncertainty is boosting appetite for alternative assets in a global market predicted to reach US$15.3tn by 2020. How can pension funds, insurers and other asset owners find value in this fast-growing sector? Are current return patterns sustainable in the long term, and how and where should capital be deployed to effectively manage risk and liquidity across the whole portfolio? How are investments in hedge funds and liquid alternatives measuring up against more traditional alternatives?

As part of a global series of forums focused on the search for investment yield, the Financial Times and Franklin Templeton Investments are pleased to present this high level roundtable in Sydney to share insights, expertise and opinion on the future dynamics of alternative investing, the outlook for returns, and the expectations investors have of this fast maturing asset class.
