Alternative investments are any investment outside of the traditional mainstream of purchasing stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities or property in the hope that they will gain in value.
Typically, alternative investments rely on the knowledge and experience of skilled investment managers to assess the potential of a developing business or trade complex strategies in under-researched or illiquid markets.
There is a wide range of alternative funds. However, Holborn Assets is quite conservative in accepting some of the offerings as the true risks are often not always known.
This would be the case for alternative funds such as Life Settlements – where Life Insurance Policies in the USA are traded on the basis that they have a value on the death of the insured.
