The SELECT Approach to Alternative Investments

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 06, 2007 ) Sydney, Australia -- Select Asset Management (SELECT) launched the Select Alternatives Portfolio on 1 April 2004 as a one-stop solution for advisers and investors to access a range of alternative investments. SELECT’s Edge in Alternative InvestmentsWe believe that investors with portfolios consisting of only mainstream investments are insufficiently diversified, and that the potential exists to extract significant benefits of both increasing return and lowering risk by introducing a reasonable allocation to alternative investments. Our objective in creating the Select Alternatives Portfolio (the Alternatives Portfolio) is to establish a premium product which gives retail investors the opportunity to invest in alternative investments such as alternative assets and alternative strategies which they would otherwise be unable to access, and which are professionally managed with regard to the complex risk and return opportunities available. In summary, we believe the SELECT edge in building the Alternatives Portfolio is:- the key people have experience in researching and incorporating alternative investments in portfolios; - the SELECT investment team has strong experience in assessing listed fund structures (including alternatives); - close partnerships with one of the world’s leading fund of hedge fund groups as well as leading managed futures and precious metals specialists; - access to expertise through high quality consultants in specific alternative investment asset classes; - experience incorporating alternative investments into SELECT’s own diversified portfolios; - a strong knowledge of the product requirements of the retail market; and - a strong infrastructure and risk management framework to effectively deliver to investor requirements. The Select Alternatives PortfolioThe Alternatives Portfolio is designed to offer investors efficient access to a diversified portfolio of Australian and international “alternative” investments (both alternative strategies and alternative assets) which have a low correlation to mainstream share, bond and property portfolios, and which provide investors with monthly access to their funds.At SELECT we believe that alternative investments can make a significant contribution to a mainstream portfolio through:- providing access to attractive absolute returns not dependent on rising share and bond markets; - enabling greater diversification, thereby providing a smoother pattern of overall returns over time from the combined portfolio; and - lowering the risk of major capital drawdowns from the combined portfolio. The Alternatives Portfolio aims to provide a simple solution for investors and advisers seeking exposure to the range of alternative investments in a form that provides: - professional management and due diligence across the full spectrum of alternative investments; - access to some of the world’s premier alternatives managers and funds; - disciplined exposure to quality listed alternatives at attractive prices; - a sound fund structure providing acceptable liquidity and regular pricing; and semi-annual distributions. What Does the Select Alternatives Portfolio Invest in?The Alternatives Portfolio utilises a multi-manager investment program allocated across a range of unlisted and listed alternative investments overseen by the SELECT investment team. Specifically, the Alternatives Portfolio will invest primarily in other managed funds and managed accounts. It may also invest in listed and unlisted securities, fixed interest securities, hybrid securities and cash. The Alternatives Portfolio, and some of the funds or securities in the Alternatives Portfolio, may invest directly in derivatives such as options and futures to help achieve required investment positions and to hedge downside return risk or foreign currency exposure.Select Asset Management Limited (SELECT) is an independent Australianalternative investment group founded in 2002. Our aim is to enhance wealth regardless of the economic climate or the performance of traditional benchmarks. This is the philosophy of ‘absolute returns’. It emphasises capital preservation and steady gains over the medium to long term. SELECT’s team has extensive experience in investment research and funds management with a core focus on absolute return strategies.Whilst all care has been taken in the preparation of this article (using sources believed to be reliable and accurate), no person including Select Asset Management Limited (SELECT) or any other affiliated company accepts responsibility for any loss suffered by any person arising in reliance on this information other than under law which cannot be excluded.
