New Ways for Advisors to Access Alternative Investments
About This Episode
With relentless market volatility and other stubborn headwinds, advisors must find an adequate portfolio balance for their clients. What role will alternative investments play in offsetting market challenges? In this episode, we dive into this question with Andrea Mody, U.S. wealth private markets head at Macquarie Asset Management. We discuss how Macquarie continues to be a trailblazer for the democratization of alternatives, how traditional asset managers are reorganizing to incorporate alternatives, the roadblocks for allocation and Andrea’s outlook for the space.
