In our exclusive survey of institutional investors and fund managers, we examine the drivers behind the alternative asset revolution.
BNY Mellon’s new survey, conducted in partnership with FT Remark, reveals a bright outlook for alternative assets. Investors are satisfied with the returns their alternative exposures are generating, and the vast majority feel that performance has either met or exceeded expectations. Indeed, more than half of respondents expect allocations to increase over the coming 12 months.
While investors are broadly positive about their experience of alternative allocations, they are putting pressure on managers to improve. Fees remain an item under negotiation, and investors are pushing for greater control and transparency. Fortunately, managers recognize the need to meet these demands, through the use of new operational solutions and cutting-edge technology.
