Understanding Their Role in Volatile Markets
Higher volatility and growing concern over an equity market downturn has investors increasingly focused on equity market diversification.
In fact, Q1 volatility prompted nearly half (42.1%) of investors to adjust their equity market outlook, according to an industry survey conducted by BarclayHedge and MPI. Those concerns were echoed in a recent report by Wilshire Associates, which tracked liquid alternative inflows for the first quarter at nearly $12 billion.
