Special Report: True Diversifiers


Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Working in asset management, we are well aware of the benefits of diversification, especially in times of crisis. In simplest terms, diversification involves investing your portfolio in a variety of different assets like stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, real assets, precious metals, private markets, cash, etc.  The benefits of diversification often come into question when correlations are high and different assets classes are moving in tandem. Further questions arise when there is an extreme disparity of returns between different assets or asset classes.

In the special report on “True Diversifiers,” HedgeNordic wants to highlight some strategies and approaches which can truly contribute to diversifying (institutional) portfolios. LGT Capital Partners discusses whether “Portfolio Protection Strategies are A One Trick Pony or an Eight-Armed Buddha?,” while Mike Riddell elaborates on “Controlled Risk Taking in the Allianz Strategic Bond Fund.” Nordic Cross Asset Management, wrapping up on their third year in business, explain how “Diversification is in the DNA” of the asset manager and United Banker’s highlight “Infrastructure as a True Portfolio Diversifier.” Formuepleje’s Soren Astrup investigates the question “Can Higher Leverage be Consistent With Lower Risk?” and Resscapital sees “One Replacement for Fixed Income” in the US secondary market for life insurance policies.

Even in single strategy portfolios, diversification can play a key role as Efficient Capital stress in their commentary “The value of Diversification in CTA Investments.” Newly launched Antiloop Hedge explain the intrinsic diversification of their strategy and “The Beauty of a Multi-Strategy Approach.” Linus Nilsson, of NilssonHedge, looks at “Correlation and Beta – Searching for Diversification.” and Hamlin Lovell, in an editorial, looks at “Evolving Concepts of Diversification.”
