Where are we currently in the development of alternative investments? Where is the trend going? Solution approaches for uncorrelated income, classic hedge funds vs HF replications. What were the experiences in 2020 and 2021? Are there solutions for asset managers or are size and illiquidity insurmountable hurdles? How are private markets used in mixed portfolios?
