With market valuations elevated and volatility at disquietingly low levels, we believe alternative investments should be an essential component of most diversified portfolios.  Some advisers may find that alternative investments, despite their promise, often consume a disproportionate amount of research time and effort, are difficult and expensive to access, or deliver disappointing results.  It is important to choose carefully, as there can be a wide degree of dispersion among providers.

Nevertheless, with equity and bond market valuations stretched, it’s time for a close examination of strategies that may help cushion portfolio losses when the need arises.  Palladiem offers a simple, cost-effective solution: a liquid and transparent strategy that competes favorably on pricing with most mutual funds, while designed to be more inexpensive, more liquid, and more transparent than the average private hedge fund. Palladiem’s Multi-Strategy Alternative portfolio has outperformed the HFRX Global Hedge Fund Index each year since its inception in 2012 with similar volatility and low correlation to traditional asset classes.1
