Alternative investments: Capitalizing on currencies

Apr 7, 2014 @ 12:01 am

By William Blair

Many investors don't pay attention to currency exposure or consider them over short-term horizons.

William Blair's Brian Singer highlights why taking a longer-term fundamental approach to currency management can provide a benefit to portfolios. Currencies provide the potential to enhance return, and can be a powerful diversifier.

The video above is part of a short form video library created by William Blair to answer frequently asked questions about using alternative funds.

• How to fund an alternative investment—how much and from where in a portfolio?

• What are the differences between leading alternative fund categories?

• Why any portfolio needs both top-down and bottom-up portfolio management?

These are among the questions addressed in quick and to-the-point videos designed to deepen your understanding of alternatives and how they work. The initial videos in the series feature Brian Singer, well known for his pioneering advances in the active management of multi-asset and currency portfolios and leader of the William Blair Macro Allocation Fund portfolio management team.
