Alternative investments

We’ve been advising clients on alternative investment opportunities for a quarter of a century. Today, thanks to this heritage, we have a range of investment options that meet the needs of our private clients.

Risk warning

  • Alternative investments may not be suitable for all clients
  • It is important to note that the capital value of, and income from, any investment may go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested.
  • Investors in alternative investments should bear in mind that these products can be highly speculative and may not be suitable for all clients
  • Investors should ensure they understand the features of the products and fund strategies and the risks involved before deciding whether or not to invest in such products
  • Such investments are generally intended for experienced and financially sophisticated investors who are willing to bear the risks associated with such investments, which can include: loss of all or a substantial portion of the investment; lack of liquidity in that there may be no secondary market for the fund and none may be expected to develop; volatility of returns; prohibitions and/or material restrictions on transferring interests in the fund; absence of information regarding valuations and pricing; delays in tax reporting; key man and adviser risk; limited or no transparency to underlying investments; limited or no regulatory oversight; and less regulation and higher fees than mutual funds
  • You should consult your professional advisers before investing
  • All decisions regarding the tax implications of your investments should be made in connection with your independent tax adviser
