Samuel Freshfields | Alternative Investments

Alternative Investments Alternatives make the difference

Alternative investments are becoming more important in portfolios as allocations expand. There has never been a greater need for a sustainable, disciplined, streamlined, technology-enabled, transparent, and fiduciary partnership-based strategy.

Our solutions

  • Hedged Equities

    With various market exposures and volatility profiles, hedged equities generate equity-driven returns. As a manager of long/short equity strategies, Samuel Freshfields has substantial expertise in the management of hedged equities portfolios across markets and financial disciplines.

  • Fixed Income Oriented

    In this area, our global strategies pursue returns based on macro, credit, and relative-value insights rather than benchmark-relative positioning. Even in low-yield or rising-rate circumstances, these strategies may produce high returns. Our capacity to build strategies with unique risk and return characteristics is bolstered by the company’s significant presence in global fixed-income markets.

  • Multi-Asset Solutions

    Our multi-asset solutions incorporate methods from several disciplines to suit investors' objectives, such as achieving a specific level of return or income, outperforming inflation, or meeting a risk target. Our collaborative culture is well adapted to establishing effective multidisciplinary approaches, as is revealed through the company's expertise in managing asset allocation portfolios.

  • Alternative Exposures

    Many investors are looking for methods that have little or no correlation to typical market exposures and, ideally, can provide alpha as well as diversification. We have significant experience spotting tactical options that may emerge from unstable markets, as well as strong capabilities in publicly listed alternative exposures. This comes as a result of our long-term presence in specific asset categories, such as commodities and infrastructure.

  • Absolute Return

    Absolute-return techniques seek to increase consistent returns irrespective of market direction. We provide a wide selection of absolute-return strategies that aim for consistent returns over time while assisting other components of an investor's overall portfolio in reaching their objectives.
