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 assets close to USD 10 billion for both prominent institutional clients and highly sophisticated private investors.
We distinguish two main families within alternatives, 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 funds, financial innovations and inherent risks. UBP endeavours to construct an Approved List of alternative funds that consists of the best names across many strategies and take 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.
