Alternative Investments

Discover alternative investment strategies to mitigate public market volatility and increase diversification within your portfolio.

PRIVATE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Canadian investors are increasingly looking to private alternative investment strategies to help them reduce volatility and increase portfolio diversification. Alternative investments are financial assets that do not fall into the traditional investment categories of stocks, bonds or cash assets. Alternative assets can be things such as private equity, real estate holdings, hedge funds, managed futures & commodities, derivatives or fine art & collectables. When referring specifically to “private” alternative investments, it means that those assets don’t trade in the public market space. Because of this, private alternative investments can offer investors downside risk protection through low correlation to public market events and downturns. By adding private holdings to a portfolio, investors can help to provide true diversification within their portfolio by holding various types of investments within different markets altogether.

Skyline Wealth Management Inc. (“Skyline Wealth”) offers investors access to 5 unique private alternative investments based on real assets; helping investors reach their financial goals without the worry of what the markets may or may not do. Learn more about Skyline’s proprietary investments and how they might fit into your portfolio and investment goals below.
