Alternative Assets (also called Private Markets), are, simply put, any investment outside stocks, bonds, or cash is considered an alternative. Most alternatives are not publicly traded on an exchange; instead investments are made on private markets.
The most common alternative investments include:
- Real Estate
- Private Credit
- Private Equity/Venture Capital
- Structured Products
Previously only accessible to institutions, private market alternatives are rapidly becoming a meaningful part of many individual investor portfolios. Alternatives can compliment a traditional portfolio, potentially delivering stronger risk-adjusted returns.
While each portfolio is unique, top investment managers like KKR recommend allocating up to 30% of your portfolio to private market alternatives.
