New Research Update: 2019 Retail Distribution of Alternative Investments

We are pleased to present the eighth edition of MMI’s annual research report on the Retail Distribution of Alternative Investments

Produced in conjunction with FUSE Research, the report analyzes proprietary data provided by MMI member firms on both traditional and liquid alternative investments, making it unique in the industry.

Released at the 2019 MMI Alternative Investments Forum held on June 3rd, the report examines the various headwinds faced by the alternative investments industry in 2018 – the volatile market sell-off in the fourth quarter, the general malaise around active management, product rationalization at large distributors, and stiff competition from the largest managers. It also examines areas of opportunity like Opportunity Zones, the positive fund-raising environment for private equity, the growth of unlisted closed-end funds, and technology as a differentiator and means to broaden the reach of alternative investments.
