Recent market turbulence has seen clients increasing their allocation to alternative investments, particularly in sophisticated markets. But some investors still perceive them as a risky allocation, writes Elisa Trovato

Seeking additional returns in a difficult environment

Multi-asset structured products are a one-stop shop for investors to capture their investment views and diversification needs, making them an appealing investment proposition. These products can be structured to give either direct exposure to the underlying assets or indirect exposure through actively managed underlyings such as funds, write Julie Wan and Federico De Palma

Private Equity: Alive and Kicking!

Despite the collapse of mega deals and slowing activity, private equity fund raising is in a healthy state and the asset class can provide premium returns over the longer term, writes Marwan Naja

An even spread of balanced risk

Asset allocation is about controlling the risk added to the portfolio by each of its components.
