Alternative investments – what are they and why you should include them in your portfolio

Key points to consider when making an investment in alternatives.

Globally, alternative investments (or private market assets) are one of the world’s fastest growing investment classes. This significant growth has been fuelled by investors looking for new ways to improve portfolio diversification and enhance returns, especially as global equity markets appear unsustainably high.

What are alternative assets and why should South African investors consider including them in investment portfolios?

Moneyweb’s Ciaran Ryan and Dino Zuccollo, head of product development and distribution at leading SA-based alternative asset manager Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management, unpack this and much more in this webinar recording:

  • What are alternative investments and why have they grown so rapidly?
  • What are the benefits of investing in alternatives?
  • Are they riskier?
  • What are the key points to consider when making an investment in alternatives?
  • How can South Africans access alternatives?

This webinar took place on Tuesday, November 16.
