UBP has long been convinced of the significant benefits of alternatives as investment vehicles, including the value and diversity they can create in portfolio construction. Determined to be a front-runner in the alternative investment space, we have been investing in hedge funds since 1972 and are one of Europe’s top players in the industry, investing close to USD 10 billion worth of assets for both prominent institutional clients and highly sophisticated private investors.
We distinguish two main families within alternative investments, based on their utility within an overall portfolio:
The rapid growth of the alternatives industry over the last two decades has led to an extraordinary rise in the number of alternative investment funds and to a boom in financial innovation, but also to an increase in inherent risks. UBP maintains an Approved List of the best alternative funds across many strategies taking into consideration a variety of constraints such as liquidity, transparency and the regulatory framework. Our strict investment process in selecting alternative investments is a blend of top-down and bottom-up analysis with risk oversight at each step.
