CI Liquid Alternatives

New Tools for Portfolio Diversification

New Realities Call for New Solutions

FACT

Diversification and the importance of asset allocation have long been fundamental principles of sound financial planning and portfolio construction. Both work to add value to a portfolio when individual holdings perform differently.

REALITY

Since the 2008 Financial Crisis, asset classes have moved more in unison. While many high net worth and institutional investors have insulated their portfolios with alternative and real assets, many other investors haven’t had the same ability to do so. WE ARE CHANGING THAT!

Fitting into Your Existing Asset Allocation

It’s important to understand that liquid alternatives are not a new asset class, but rather a new type of investment strategy. Because liquid alternatives typically aim to add diversification benefits to portfolios, they can be used alongside existing positions as complementary funds. When combined effectively, liquid alternatives can help reduce portfolio volatility and potentially enhance returns.
