Access a Blend of Liquid Alternatives Strategies

Why Do Liquid Alternatives Matter?

Diversified exposures and daily liquidity have historically been instrumental in generating attractive returns at moderate volatility levels. In particular, with each turning of the economic cycle, investors who included liquid alternatives in their portfolios have experienced smaller losses than those who only held equities and fixed income – while still participating in the subsequent recoveries.

 

In our view, liquid alternatives can combine the benefits of wealth preservation and wealth generation, offering an efficient solution for investors looking to de-risk but remain invested. 

Take the Quiz on Alternatives


Question ? of ?
How likely is a top performing alternative fund in any given year to remain among the top performers the following year?
Based on approximately 3,500 alternative funds over 13 years, whereby funds were ranked in performance quintiles, a top ranked fund in any given year has 29% probability of being in the top rank again in the following year. More information after the next question.
Question ? of ?
How likely is a top performing alternative fund in any given year to fall to the bottom performers the following year?
Based on approximately 3,500 alternative funds over 13 years, whereby funds were grouped into performance quintiles. Our analysis showed that, historically, there has been little evidence of persistent performance across alternative managers. While alternative managers have on average generated attractive risk-adjusted returns, top performing funds have been an ever-changing group, making timing or selection challenging. GS ART Portfolio offers a broad approach to alternative investments, without directly investing in any individual manager. [Source: GSAM]
Question ? of ?
Which of the following groups of alternative funds have delivered, on average, the best risk-adjusted returns since 2003?
Based on approx. 3,500 alternative funds over 13 years. The smaller funds (AUM <$500 million) have historically delivered similar annualised returns as the biggest funds (AUM >$5 billion), but with lower volatility, thus realising a more attractive Sharpe ratio. [Source: GSAM]
Question ? of ?
There are currently less than 50 alternatives funds with AUM larger than $5 billion. How many alternatives funds currently have AUM smaller than $500 million?
There are over 2,000 alternatives funds with AUM smaller that $500 million. GS ART Portfolio applies an equal-weight methodology to the alternative managers universe, to ensure the portfolio is not dominated by a few, large funds, and aims to provide exposure to a diverse set of managers that investors might otherwise find difficult to research, including smaller capitalisation funds.

Question ? of ?
Over the last 29 years, how many times have we experienced a bear equity market or a rising rate environment?
While bonds and equities alike have posted strong returns over the past few years, over the last 29 years we have been in either a bear equity market or a rising rate environment half of the time. Historically, investors who included liquid alternatives in their portfolios have experienced smaller losses than those who only held equities and fixed income – while still participating in the subsequent recoveries.
