Places to Hide in a Stock Market Crash: Alternative Investment Funds
So-called “alternative investments” offer investors exposure to all kinds sectors, but my criteria for an alternative investment is that it must not be directly correlated to the fate of stocks or bonds. And while all markets are generally connected to one another, there are some strategies designed to have very little direct correlation to markets.
Thanks to the burgeoning ETF industry, there are many funds that offer easy access to low-cost alternative investments such as managed futures, multistrategy funds and multiasset funds.
Three great alternative investment ETFs to put on your market crash list are the WisdomTree Managed Futures Strategy Fund (NYSEARCA:WDTI), SPDR SSGA Multi-Asset Real Return ETF (NYSEARCA:RLY) and the Morningstar Alternatives Solution ETF (BATS:ALTS).
