Video: Following the Lead of Institutional Investors

Dorothy Weaver, Chairman and CEO of Collins Capital speaks with InvestmentNews and says institutions are looking to replace the role that bonds have historically played in in their portfolios in terms of income, risk-mitigation, and volatility dampening. For this reason, she thinks “well-diversified, non-correlated portfolios – alternatives – hedge funds in particular” will be playing a much larger role in the future. The good news for smaller investors, according to Ms. Weaver, is that the advent of liquid alternatives allows them to pursue the same strategies as the institutions, but with less money.
