HONG KONG, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- National AIM, the New York and Hong Kong-based alternative investment manager, reveals that both institutional and retail clients are optimistic about the future of its alternative investment platform as alternative asset allocations increase through the third quarter of 2017.
As alternative forms of investment become more important to the successful management of portfolio diversification, investors are beginning to increase their exposure to real assets, private equities and crypto-currencies in pursuit of risk-adjusted return on investment.
The shift comes at a time when global equity markets continue to exceed record levels and where value is being squeezed through increasing exposures to equity risk.
"We continue to experience a growing demand for alternatives from both our institutions and retail clients. Under the current economic climate, investors are faced with a number of potential headwinds as market uncertainties are driven by a number of critical geopolitical events," commented Austin Rose, National AIM's chief investment strategist.
"On top of that, investors are presented with the problems created by high levels of market correlation across traditional asset classes. As the intensity of such challenges increases, investors are essentially being forced to explore alternative investments in a way that limits their exposure to risk whilst satisfying their return requirements. Here at National AIM, our alternative investment management platform provides investors with access to a number of opportunities to diversify portfolios across a number of direct investments and manage funds."
