About me

Excluding entire asset classes could be a tough sell, some financial advisers say.
Investors must be asking instead whether a good point class has been doing
because it should.

“You can come up with a low-volatility portfolio of hedge funds, and they can become
very consistent return,” Mr. Stackman of UBS said. “But you're failing to get enough
the generous returns the S. & P. has become offering you since
2009.”

That might be around 2 percent annually for hedge funds versus about 18 percent to
the S. & P. 500. And many asset classes already have
experienced a good run.

There's another cautionary argument on private investments.
Because they are inherently risky, correctly undertaken only by way of the most experienced investors.

Michael W. Sonnenfeldt, founder and chairman of Tiger 21,
a wise investment club if you have $10 million to $1 billion, said the group's 630 members had increased their
investments in private equity and real estate.
