About this talk

When most people think of investing, they generally think of traditional investments—namely stocks, bonds, and cash. Alternative investments are supplemental strategies to traditional investments and include investments in five main categories: hedge funds, private capital, natural resources, real estate, and infrastructure. These are often used by investors to decrease volatility, as they have a low correlation to standard asset classes, meaning they don’t necessarily move in the same direction as other assets when market conditions change. In this episode, we will examine: • Why consider alternatives • The myths surrounding alternative investment • The ways investors might be able to access the different asset classes Investment beginners can expect to expand their understanding of the main alternative investment classes and how to add them to their portfolios.

NTree’s goal is to educate European investors on the investment opportunities in the Chinese and Commodities markets. As the Chinese economy continues to grow at breakneck pace and China remains at the forefront in innovation in high-tech sectors, the investment case for China is stronger than ever. Meanwhile, world market volatility further highlights the necessity for European investors to consider adding Commodities to their portfolios both for diversification, and for momentum. We believe that both phenomena are inextricably linked, and present unique opportunities to the discerning investor - we intend to support investors in uncovering those opportunities.
