9780062257901: The Alternative Answer: The Nontraditional Investments That Drive the World's Best-Performing Portfolios

Today, investors are desperate for new options. Stocks have proved stagnant after fifteen years of crazy volatility. The trusty real estate market bottomed out. Bank CDs offer rates that start with a decimal point. For traditional investing options it's either gamble dangerously, or make nothing at all. How can investors gain bigger returns for much lower risks? The answer, as long-time investment strategist Bob Rice explains, is alternative investing. Instead of narrow stock and bond portfolios, Rice advises clients to own an array of real assets, hedged strategies, venture funds, emerging market companies, natural resources and other previously exotic investments. But to most investors, and even most financial advisors, this new alternative world is a mystery. How do these strategies work? How do they relate to a traditional portfolio? How does one pick the right products? Rice fully understands this world and explains it step by step, providing a clear and simple, yet very sophisticated, system for investing wisely and well. In addition he explains how to generate inflation-protected income, build risk-adjusted profits, and safely transfer excess wealth to later generations.

From the Back Cover:

The first book to explain the new world of alternative investing, showing how anyone can use nontraditional options to significantly increase returns and lower risks

The world's elite investors have long relied on alternative investments to produce superior returns. Until now, these strategies were the exclusive purview of institutions and the superwealthy, but today any informed investor can play the same game.

A rainbow of investment options—timber, start-ups, master limited partnerships (MLPs), hedged strategies, managed futures, infrastructure, peer-to-peer lending, farmland, and dozens of other nontraditional strategies—can provide dramatically better gains, with less total risk, than the standard choices. In The Alternative Answer, Bob Rice, Bloomberg TV's Alternative Investments Editor, leads an entertaining and easy- to-understand tour of this world, and suggests specific alternative investments for all four key "jobs" of a portfolio: safely generating more current income, decreasing risks of economic shocks, significantly increasing long-term profits, and protecting purchasing power over time.

Regardless of experience or net worth, readers will learn exactly how to substantially improve investment performance—in the same way that the world's best investors already do. Stocks and bonds alone aren't nearly enough. Investors need an alternative answer and now they have it.

About the Author:

Bob Rice is Bloomberg TV's Alternative Investments Editor, the managing partner at Tangent Capital, and a board member of investment advisors with more than $2 billion under management. The positions he has held throughout his multifaceted career have spanned many domains: Wall Street law firm partner; public company CEO; trial lawyer for the U.S. Department of Justice; and technology entrepreneur.
