CEO tapes: the gap between best and worst alternatives is stark

In the final episode of our four part series we question if the shift into alternative strategies is really in the interest of the clients. 

The lack of liquidity in these products has often given cause for concern, especially in times of market stress. 

However, one chief executive points out that as people increasingly take control of their retirement, investment horizons have changed. For those with long-term perspective alternatives should be part of the portfolio they argue. 

All participants agree the demand for alternatives like private equity, private debt, property and infrastructure will grow. But the gap between the best and worst is greater in areas like private equity than it is in conventional asset management.

The participants were:

*Andrew Schlossberg - chief executive officer, Invesco EMEA

* Hanneke Smits - chief executive officer, Newton Investment Management

* Lucy Macdonald - chief investment officer global equity, Allianz Global Investors GmbH

* Sridhar Chandrasekharan - global chief executive officer, HSBC Global Asset Management
