Alternative Markets


Alternative Markets

Alternative investment funds such as hedge funds provide useful liquidity to markets and their activities can help to prevent investment bubbles, sell-offs and fire-sales, thereby supporting financial stability. Our team understands the alternative markets and is able to draw upon our vast global resources and creatively combine strategies and plans that ultimately provide a solution that is best for each client. There are several reasons an investor or a portfolio manager is likely to consider adding alternative investments to the balance sheet.

In some cases, money generated from an alternative investment might be subject to far more favorable tax treatment than that from a more traditional investment. While the list of alternative investments is extensive, some of the ones you might encounter in the real world include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • Real estate and all of its many derivations, including directly owned property, real estate limited partnerships, real estate development corporations, and REITs
  • Master limited partnerships, which can own and operate everything from oil pipelines to capital-intensive theme parks
  • Stock or membership units in a privately held business
  • Commodities, including precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, as well as crude oil, natural gas, ethanol, corn, soybeans, wheat, cocoa, coffee, sugar, and many other items.
  • Private equity
  • Wine
  • Coins that have numismatic value
  • Venture capital
  • Peer-to-peer lending
  • Hedge funds
  • Annuities
  • Tax credits
  • Farmland
  • Timberland
  • Mineral rights
  • Intellectual property such as copyrights, song rights, patents, and trademarks
  • Privately underwritten mortgages
  • Equipment leasing
  • Structured settlements
  • Art and collectibles
