9780470683965: Alternative Alternatives: Risk, Returns and Investment Strategy

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, investors are searching for new opportunities and products to safeguard their investments for the future. Riding high on the wave of new financial opportunities are Alternative Alternatives (AA). However, there is a dearth of information on what Alternative Alternatives are, how they work, and how they can be profited from.

The book defines what Alternative Alternatives are, based on research and the following hypothesis: If the source (origin) of the risk lies outside of the financial markets, then it should be insulated from the vagaries of those markets. The book identifies and examines such and other unique, idiosyncratic, and difficult to replicate sources of risk - assets and strategies. The recent credit and sovereign debt crisis have served to defend the hypothesis and have upheld the conclusion that alternative alternative assets and strategies offer a risk-return profile that is distinct to those offered by traditional and main stream hedge fund strategies. These strategies include timberland investing, insurance risk transfer, asset/loan based lending (aviation, shipping, trade, entertainment, litigation financing etc), collectables and extraction strategies such as volatility and behaviour finance.

This book will be a one stop resource to the new investment class known globally as Alternative Alternatives (AA) and will provide a comprehensive but accessible introduction to these assets. It provides an in-depth analysis of the assets and strategies which will leave investors with everything they need to identify and allocate to the best AA for them. It reviews the asset on a standalone basis, providing an explanation of the product, its characteristics, a SWOT analysis, and details its risk/reward drivers. The book also looks at how to integrate the asset within a portfolio - its peculiarities, the challenges and the constraints of each. Next, the book shows how Alternative Alternatives are used in the real world, how they are implemented, and the results that they have achieved. Finally, the book looks at the scope, scalability and prospects for each asset in the future.

From the Back Cover:

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, investors are searching for new opportunities and products to safeguard their investments for the future. Riding high on the wave of new financial opportunities are Alternative Alternatives (AA). However, there is a lack of information on Alternative Alternatives: What are they? How do they work? How can investors profit from them? In Alternative Alternatives, Sona Blessing addresses all of these questions.

Blessing defines Alternative Alternatives based on the following hypothesis: If the origin of the risk lies outside the financial markets, then is should be insulated from the vagaries of those markets. The recent credit and sovereign debt crises have served to defend this hypothesis and have upheld the conclusion that AA assets and strategies offer a risk-return profile that is distinct from those offered by traditional and main stream hedge fund strategies.

AA strategies include timberland investing, insurance risk transfer, asset/loan based lending (aviation, shipping, trade, entertainment, litigation financing, etc,), collectables and extraction strategies such as volatility and behavioural finance. Alternative Alternatives reviews each asset/strategy on a standalone basis, profiling its characteristics, an analysis of its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), and its risk/reward drivers. Blessing describes how to integrate these assets and strategies within a portfolio by examining their peculiarities, the challenges and constraints of each, how they are being used in the real world, how they are implemented, and the results that they have achieved. Finally, the book reviews the scope, scalability and prospects for each asset/strategy in the future.

Alternative Alternatives is a one stop resource on this new investment class, providing an in-depth analysis of these assets and strategies, which will leave investors with everything they need to identify, allocate and manage them.

From the Inside Flap:

“Alternative Alternatives regroup by definition a series of relatively unexplored asset classes and investment strategies. This book provides a comprehensive roadmap for anyone willing to understand their characteristics and return opportunities, but also their possible risks. A must read to potentially discover some of the hidden gems of investing.” – Francois-Serge Lhabitant, PhD, Chief Investment Officer, Kedge Capital, Professor of Finance, EDHEC Business School

“This is an excellent primer and very timely contribution to the alternative investments literature. Sona Blessing’s book, Alternative Alternatives provides a comprehensive and unique analysis of the latest frontier in investment management.” – Alexander Ineichen, Founder, Ineichen Research & Management AG, author of Asymmetric Returns

“Alternative Alternatives constitutes a good introduction to new forms of investment that are faily frequently ignored in the financial literature. Well structured and easy to read, this publication is accessible to a broad audience of investors.” – Noël Amenc, PhD, Professor of Finance, Director of the EDHEC Risk Institute
