Alternative Investment Leaders Program (AIP) is an advanced, practitioner-led program meant for wealth managers, registered investment advisors and financial product distributors.

Alternative investments cover a broad range of strategies and structures designed to exhibit little to no correlation to traditional equity and fixed income markets with a long-term expectation of illiquidity.

Few years ago for clients, alternatives meant art or collectibles. That’s not the case today. We’re seeing the asset class really explode with different types of investments. Alternative investment products and strategies spanning across private equity, private credit, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure and managed futures markets are getting extremely popular with well-informed UHNW investors.

Stocks, bonds, and cash, the three traditional pillars of an investment portfolio, are looking a little wobbly lately. Inflation-adjusted yields on cash are negative. Bonds are being squashed by interest-rate fears. And stocks are historically expensive. To meet investors’ needs, financial advisors are increasingly turning to alternative investments such as real estate and private equity.

Alas, there’s no playbook for using alts in investment portfolios. This is where an industry-wide upskilling program like this gains paramount significance for wealth managers and other investment professionals. This program is designed to prepare wealth and investment professionals to better serve the unique needs of their clients by delivering exceptional portfolios and bespoke alternative investment products.
