New Research: 2021 Retail Distribution of Alternative Investments

MMI is pleased to present the tenth edition of its annual research report on the Retail Distribution of Alternative Investments

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

In 2020, the pandemic injected historic volatility and uncertainty into financial markets around the world, reminding investors that alternatives should be an essential component of well-diversified, risk-adjusted portfolios. In addition to examining performance and asset flow data for different categories of alternatives, this year’s report looks at key product development trends, unpacks advisor attitudes on the use of alternatives, and provides a 2021 outlook for alternatives in the wealth management space.
