The Alternative Answer

by Mike Hunter

AlternativeAnswerBob Rice, Bloomberg TV’s alternative investment editor, leads an entertaining and easy-to-understand tour of this world and suggests specific alternative investments for all four key “jobs” of a portfolio: safely generating more current income, decreasing risks of economic shocks, significantly increasing long-term profits and protecting purchasing power over time. A rainbow of investment options such as timber, startups, MLPs, hedged strategies, managed futures, infrastructure, catastrophe bonds, peer-to-peer lending, farmland and dozens of other non-traditional strategies can provide dramatically better gains, with less total risk, than the standard choices.
