Video: Altegris’ Magnusen and Lipper’s Jenkins Discuss Liquid Alts

In this full-length episode of WealthTrack, host Consuelo Mack discusses liquid alternatives with a pair of industry representatives: Lara Magnusen, Director of Investment Products at Altegris and Robert Jenkins, Lipper’s Global Head of Research Services. Rather than dealing in sound bites, Ms. Mack allows both Magnusen and Jenkins ample opportunity to explain what liquid alts are and how they can be used to improve a portfolio’s risk-adjusted returns. However, Ms. Mack cautions her viewers to “be very careful when considering alternative investments,” since there are many new and inexperienced players in the space; many of the strategies are essentially untested in different market cycles; and liquid alts tend to have higher fees than traditional mutual funds.
