TIME TO ENGAGE
The liquid alternative space has grown from less than $150 billion in 2008 to over $900 billion today, and now represents nearly one-third of the overall hedge fund universe. Clearly, advisors and their clients are catching on to the benefits alternatives can add to a well-diversified portfolio. On the other hand, alternatives can be challenging to fully understand because there are simply so many strategies and investment styles to choose from. The Hedge Fund Research Institute (HFRI) Composite Index tracks over 6,900 different hedge funds. So, when selecting alternatives, where should one turn?
We believe the Easterly Total Hedge Portfolio might just be the most logical place to turn. Why? Because its investment mandate is to outperform the returns of a variety of investment strategies offered by private funds. So, for clients who are intrigued by the risk-adjusted returns of the HFRI Composite Index (which cannot be invested in), and would like to further diversify a portfolio with a fund seeking to outperform a variety of investment strategies, including those used by firms in the HFRI Composite Index, then Easterly Total Hedge Portfolio should be a fund to consider. So, rather than struggling to pick one of 6,900 alternative strategies, how about a single fund that seeks to track them all.
WHICH TYPE OF CLIENT IS THIS FUND SUITABLE FOR?
When considering the Easterly Total Hedge Portfolio, it may be most appropriate for investors seeking to add alternatives that:
- Invests in a variety of strategies, including international and emerging markets, rather than just a single strategy
- Tracks and seeks to equal or beat the performance of the composite global hedge fund universe
- Improve portfolio diversification through lower correlation to traditional markets and low tracking error to the HFRI Composite Index
- Provide full transparency, no K1s, daily liquidity and low minimums, no accredited investor requirement
- Seeks long-term risk-adjusted returns relative to traditional financial market indices.
