Why alternative solutions, So much choice out there.
Fixed deposits, endowments, unit trusts, or life policies? We’re offered numerous investment options by many institutions and all question if we’re making the right decisions with our hard-earned savings. We know that we need long-term growth that surpasses inflation and that it’s prudent to diversify our portfolio. It can be difficult to do this in a rapidly expanding world, within an ever-changing global financial marketplace.
Alternative assets (out-of-the-ordinary assets)
Our offerings may sometimes include assets that don’t fall into one of the three conventional asset classes (equities, bonds or cash). We use traditional assets in different ways and include assets such as high-quality credit, hedge funds and commodities. Alternative assets were historically the sole domain of institutions but are now more widely available. The appeal of these assets has always been their low correlation to traditional asset returns. By combining traditional with alternative assets, investors can receive better risk adjusted returns over time.
(protecting downside risk)
Capital protection features are applied to many of our investment solutions to manage risk by protecting capital under adverse market conditions. Protection against large losses over time can contribute to your peace of mind, the stability of your portfolio, and the positive compounding of your returns. These guarantees can either be overlaid into or incorporated within a solution — and funds are available against these guaranteed products at short notice.
Our alternative investment solutions are provided in the way of a performance linked investment account (PLIA). Cash will be deposited into the account, and we provide you with a return linked to the reference assets you’ve chosen. A PLIA is structured in a transparent, flexible and also a cost-effective way to meet your unique financial goals.
Access to funds
In the event of short-term cash flow needs, you can borrow against your investment without compromising your longer-term return objectives and without incurring breakage fees.
Changing investor trends towards alternatives
The disruption and regulatory changes following the 2008 – 2009 global financial meltdown caused investors to adjust their behavior. They began looking for new ways to achieve growth and better methods to protect their capital in case of another market crash. One of these options was to invest in alternatives. Hamilton and Jacobs is an established niche provider of various investment solutions. Global tendencies suggest that 15% – 30% of your portfolio should be allocated to alternatives, also it is estimated that 22% (i.e. US$22.7trillion) of all global assets under management will be allocated to alternative assets by the year 2020.
Alternative assets give uncorrelated, less volatile returns
Alternative assets fall outside of the thinking of the traditional asset classes of equities, bonds and cash. Traditional assets are used differently within alternative investments and their returns are uncorrelated to market performance. Alternative assets including hedge funds (which use financial tools to protect investors from loss of capital). Alternative asset returns are therefore “smoother”.
