Alternatives

New possibilities in alternatives

Investors are increasingly looking beyond traditional asset classes to a growing alternatives market that can offer the potential of strong, uncorrelated returns and diversification throughout the economic cycle.

Our specialist teams operate across a range of areas such as real assets, private markets and liquid alternative strategies. On-the-ground connections across Europe and the US allow our teams to continually explore and capitalise on new investment possibilities.

Turning these opportunities into high-quality, optimised solutions for our clients starts with strategic dialogue so we can fully understand your objectives

Our approach is based on an independent and imaginative spirit, where alternative thinking and new ideas can thrive, supported by the resources of a global investment business that’s renowned for original research, advanced data analytics, and a centre of excellence in responsible investment.

This means our teams have both the foundations to grow and the vision to succeed. Together they bring a broad, integrated, and smart approach to alternative investments and strategies that can help you meet your needs today and be ready for whatever tomorrow holds.
