LAIGI is a New Tool for Investors

Liquid Alternative Funds, also known as 40-Act funds, are registered funds that invest in asset classes or utilize strategies that differ from traditional stocks and bonds, including Hedge Fund Strategies, Enhanced Yield, Real Assets and Alternative Beta. Many investors have not had access to these strategies because of high minimum investment requirements, a lack of transparency, high fees and lock-ups that normally run for months. Liquid Alternatives appeal to a broad group of individual and institutional investors because of their typical low minimum investment, daily or short-term redemption and lower fees and greater transparency than hedge funds.
