Why consider non-traditional asset classes?

When volatility is the norm, diversification can be an important component of a participant’s portfolio.

Providing participants access to non-traditional asset classes may help them diversify their retirement savings portfolios, but there are important issues for plan sponsors to consider.


Improved returns could impact retirement readiness

Broader diversification may help mitigate volatility and provide access to alternative sources of potential growth, and that might make a difference in the long run. Participants saving for their retirement may be seeking the potential benefits of a more broadly diversified portfolio.
