With equities performing less than stellar over the last 5 years and projected equity returns falling into the single digits, along with the hedge fund market becoming more and more saturated, investors need to look to other asset classes. With oil trading over $50/barrel, interest rates rising, and China and India’s voracious appetite for commodities, managers are turning to lesser known alternatives such as currencies, commodities, energy and the like to provide alpha-generating returns. One major sign of this trend is the recent influx of money from pension funds and mutual funds indicating the increasing exposure to these “alternative” markets they are willing to take in order to diversify their portfolios. Over the last 45 years, it has been shown that commodities outperformed stocks by a significant margin on a risk-adjusted basis. Can you afford to miss out on this asset class? Should you be allocating more money to this part of your portfolio? Now is the time to learn about the tools and strategies that are necessary to take advantage of this growing asset class.
