Pension Style Investing
While pension & endowment funds recognize the importance of diversification by including private debt and real estate in their portfolios, retail investors have a difficult time accessing alternatives to stocks and bonds. Private debt and real estate may provide portfolio stability and offset the volatility in equity and fixed income markets.
Faced with increasing interest rates, investors are struggling to find yield without increasing risk as traditional bonds no longer work. Pension and endowment funds have been shifting from publicly traded fixed-income investments to alternatives like private debt, private real estate, and private equity to enhance returns.
