The "Why?" and "How?" of Liquid Alternatives

Liquid Alternatives were the subject of a roundtable hosted by www.portfolio-adviser.com with a specially invited group of influential portfolio constructors, asset allocators and fund selectors who discussed at length the role of liquid alternative investments in a private client portfolio today. Davide Cataldo, Head of absolute return multi-strategy, and David Green, Client Portfolio Manager, represented Amundi Asset Management.

2. Migrating to more innovative portfolio construction techniques, which have the potential to cope with new and increasing risk in a period of lower returns.
