When investing in alternatives, selecting top managers is key, but proper diversification is indispensable
The evidence of historical fund return dispersion in private markets and the possibility of managers underperforming their own historical track-records are facts that demand good alternative portfolio diversification: Proper manager diversification lowers the likelihood of ending up with mediocre returns while increasing that of achieving top-level comparable asset-class returns and capturing the decorrelation benefits that are being pursued.
