Liquid alternative funds are still relatively young, but they still had $500 billion in assets globally as of April 30, 2021, according to Morningstar data. Investors, however, still lack awareness of these funds' challenges and risks, and often fail to form realistic expectations for them. Chasing good and fleeing poor performance chasing has been rampant, causing wild swings in asset flows among funds and in and out of the asset class.
Alternative strategies still can play a role to play in investors' portfolios, but they need to better understand their potential benefits. In this webinar, you will learn about the key learnings of our '2021 Global Liquid Alternatives Landscape'-analysis and we explain some of the reasons for liquid alternative strategies' recent performance challenges.
