Alternative assets are not found in standard investment portfolios. Examples of alternatives include art, precious metals, wine, coins and other collectibles. More traditional alternative investments include private equities, hedge funds, managed futures, real estate, commodities, and derivative contracts. These alternative assets are usually less liquid than traditional investments such as stocks, bonds and cash, and thus, have longer investment terms – usually over 12 months.
The AUM of the 100 largest global alternative asset managers rose 10% to US$4 trillion last year from 2015, with the biggest share belonging to real estate managers, according to a survey by Willis Towers Watson.
