Portfolio allocation for alternative investments: Get comfortable with them and then increase. 10-20% to start and then after 5-6 years, 100%. That is a means to really reduce volatility and increase consistency.

Hedge Funds: Are they riskier than mutual funds? No. Not if you use conservative strategies. You have to understand what you are getting into. You need to put up $25,000 per strategy.

Performance Expectation of Hedge Funds: 2011 was a difficult stretch of time. The hedge fund world is a broad world. Some strategies don’t put capital protection foremost. Look at 2008 and 2011 and that gives you an idea what to expect in the future. In both cases you are either at 0 or close to it, while stocks dropped.

Man GLG Emerging Markets Income Fund: Seeing opportunity in the bond market in this strategy. The developing world is paying a nice yield on their sovereign debt. Don’t go whole-heartedly into it.

Hedge fund are relevant to a retail environment in terms of diversification. Alternative strategies and hedge funds add diversification, which is harder with the globalization in the markets. Hedge funds are very much misunderstood. 99% of guys running these funds are doing a fantastic job. You get returns that are not as relevant to the rest of the world. You need an advisor that has access to these guys. You shouldn’t do hedge funds yourself. Minimum investment is $25K and there are salary and asset requirements that must be met.
