9780071830690: Winning With Liquid Alternatives: How to Achieve Your Financial Goals by Investing in ’40 Act Alternative Mutual Funds

How new and fast-proliferating mutual funds and ETFs can put a backbone in your portfolio

Until recently, only the very wealthiest individual investors have been able to access the alternative strategies that major institutions rely upon to help them reduce portfolio risks and meet investment targets. But now all that is changing, thanks to liquid alternatives.

The term, “liquid alternatives,” refers to a new breed of mutual funds and ETFs that combine the sophisticated, goal-driven strategies of the hedge fund world with the daily liquidity, regulatory oversight, and accessibility of mutual funds. The rise of these hybrid investment vehicles rewrites the playbook for investors who want portfolio tools that are more robust than standard-issue stocks and bonds, but who can’t meet the net worth tests or afford the high minimums required to invest in hedge funds (the vehicle in which alternatives have traditionally been packaged).

Written by a seasoned expert in alternatives research and product development, Winning with Liquid Alternatives gives investors tools to understand, evaluate, and use these new investment vehicles. In a clear, straightforward style, this action-oriented guide provides:

  • A historical framework tracing the evolution and later convergence of the hedge fund and mutual fund industries.
  • Evidence showing the results that major investors have achieved with alternative investments.
  • Performance, risk, and cost comparisons for hedge funds and mutual funds.
  • An overview of available liquid alternatives and the types of strategies they employ.
  • Portfolio construction concepts, such as risk budgeting, for putting liquid alts to work.
  • Practical tools for researching and selecting the strategies that best fit your goals, deciding how much to allocate to alternatives, and building them into your overall portfolio.

Investors no longer need to be passive in the face of volatile stock and bond markets. Readers of Winning with Liquid Alternatives will learn new ways to “weatherproof” their portfolios and advance toward their individual financial goals.
