ALTERNATIVES

As a pioneer in alternative investing, Stakelite has a long track record of managing the complexities of these types of strategies. By investing long and short, and balancing exposure to factors and asset classes, our alternative strategies are built to seek returns in both up and down markets. We offer both absolute return strategies, which target zero exposure to traditional markets, either at all times, or on average; and total return strategies, which maintain some exposure to traditional markets.

TYPES OF ALTERNATIVE FUNDS

There are a number of different types of alternative funds, each with their own characteristics and level of risk.

Real Assets

These funds typically invest in tangible assets that derive their value from their substance and physical properties. Real assets include real estate, public and private infrastructure, natural resources, precious metals, and commodities.

Investors looking to add a broad real assets allocation to their private markets portfolio and gain access to key market sectors, including energy, power, infrastructure, and natural resources turn to Stakelite. Real assets also serve as a crucial portfolio diversifier as they tend to respond to different economic conditions than other private asset classes. The performance of real assets, for example, has been positively correlated with inflation which has made them an effective hedge during periods when prices have risen.
