In the series, “The Case for Absolute Return Strategies,” we discuss why we believe absolute return investments are particularly important components of a properly diversified portfolio in today’s investment climate. Through charts and succinct commentary, our previous three installments have explored:
- Challenges faced by traditional “60/40” asset allocation strategies
- Tailwinds for absolute return strategies
- The importance of selecting elite managers
In this fourth and final installment, we look at a variety of more specific opportunities we are seeing across absolute return strategies today.
We believe that opportunities to generate attractive returns and alpha in absolute return strategies are as strong as they’ve been in years. The value proposition of these strategies for our clients remains compelling at a time when traditional long-only returns appear historically challenged.

RELATED NEWS AND INSIGHTS
In this installment, we present our view that top decile hedge fund managers remain among the best available investments globally, without regard to the name “hedge fund.” We also look at how top managers continue to attract talent and capital, while underperforming managers contract, underscoring the importance of manager selection.
In the first part of the series, we looked at how traditional assets are facing headwinds for future returns from factors such as near-record valuations, historically low interest rates and credit spreads, and elevated risks. In the second part of the series we observe that, despite these challenges for traditional investments, tailwinds exist that we believe can contribute to alpha within absolute return strategies.
