NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, today released a new article, titled, “Alternative Investments: Attractive Opportunity Puts Demands on Your Operating Model.” The article discusses the challenges and pitfalls of alternative investments and how the operating model is consequently tested.
In today’s market environment with declining interest rates, asset owners are seeking a substitute for traditional investments, looking at opportunities from alternative investments that seem to represent an attractive opportunity for alpha generation.
Authored by Jørgen Vuust Jensen, an alternative investments specialist, the article discusses how alternative investments comprise a diverse set of investment types based on different investment objects that do not necessarily share the favorable attributes of traditional investments. The article looks at how the attractiveness of each investment opportunity needs to be considered in a holistic portfolio perspective.
The article further reflects how the underlying IT infrastructure must allow for analysis of data and management of exposures and risks across all assets, as flexible support from the operating model becomes imperative once the investments increase.
