Alternative Investments in 2018: Hedging the Bull Market

As the business week closed last Friday, markets saw their biggest drop since June 2016. In the face of rising rates and uncertainty following a prolonged period of strong returns, what should investors be thinking about today? In the video above, I share my thoughts with a focus on alternative investments.

Alternative mutual funds often hold a variety of non-traditional investments and often employ more complex trading strategies than traditional mutual funds. Each of these alternative asset classes and investment strategies have unique risks, typically making them more suitable for investors with an above average tolerance for risk. Investors should fully understand the asset classes, investment strategies and their risks before investing.
