There are, as they say, two sides to every story. As we head into 2023, we think that’s a useful lens for viewing the world’s macro and market challenges: While they present real headwinds for some traditional assets, they may create a host of opportunities for alternative investment allocations.
This isn’t to say that alternatives won’t face their own challenges. After all, the word that seems most often used to describe today’s market environment is “uncertain.” But we believe many of the trends and conditions we’ve outlined above are secular rather than transitory, and that this may be an opportune time for allocators to take a fresh look at alternative investments and the roles they could play in their portfolios going forward.
