An Alternative Take on Alternatives
Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Time: 4pm ET | 1pm PT
If alternative investments are going to be used effectively, advisors may need to re-think their approach to core portfolios. In this myth-busting webinar, "An Alternative Take on Alternatives," you'll hear industry veteran Ben Inker, co-portfolio manager of Wells Fargo Advantage Absolute Return Fund, and Peter Chiappinelli, portfolio strategist, discuss the prevailing mindset toward model portfolios and a new framework for alternatives.
- Conventional views on correlations, inflation hedges, and absolute return can be misleading.
- Beware the three bogeymen of hedge funds—liquidity, transparency, and fees.
- Never fall in love with an asset class, traditional or alternative. Instead, fall in love with cheap assets.
