August Auspice Diversified Commentary: Big players welcoming alts

The Auspice Diversified Program gained 3.92% in August as volatility moved beyond Equities. The strategy gained 6.20% in the last 3 months while global equity markets are having mixed results, highly influenced by market and geography.

Why the big players are welcoming alternatives 

We've found that many (most) clients think their portfolios are much more conservative and diversified than they actually are. Even portfolios with higher alternative allocations (like Infrastructure, Real estate, Private Equity and traditional hedge funds) can have high market beta and correlation. Thus, non-correlated alternatives are becoming increasingly popular and are projected to grow – particularly with fears of a market correction and pension plans due for payouts in the near future.
