Alternative Investments historically have sought to provide investors with several potential investment advantages, including diversification through the inclusion of investments that tend to react differently to the markets than more traditional investments. Changing financial markets demand an allocation strategy that incorporates more than stocks, bonds and cash.
Alternative investments may be illiquid in nature, redeemed at more or less than the original amount invested, are subject to special risks, and are not suitable for all investors. There is no assurance that the investment objective will be attained. Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets and cannot guarantee that any object or goal will be achieved.
