Assante Private Client announced March 19 the addition of three alternative investment options for its investors.
"Alternative investments provide the potential for increased returns, reduced volatility and sustainable inflation-protected income streams," said Jaime Ross, President of Assante Private Client. "Investors are increasingly interested in how these strategies can help them reach their life and legacy goals."
The alternative investments now available through Assante Private Client are: the CI Global Private Real Estate Fund, which provides exposure to a globally diversified portfolio of direct investments in commercial, industrial and residential real estate; the Lawrence Park Credit Strategies Fund, which is focused on providing consistent returns with low volatility and capital preservation through investments primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds and the Marret Enhanced Tactical Fixed Income Fund, which invests in a global portfolio of investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds.
Improved client experience
"From an investment perspective, alternative strategies can improve the overall client experience, whether to generate income, drive capital growth, reduce volatility or achieve further portfolio diversification," said Damon Sutherland, Senior Vice-President, Sales and Wealth Services for Assante Private Client.
