Alternative investments is set to grow by up to 46% over the next 12-months, as stated in the AssetTribe investment platform findings. The investment platform contacted with 580 sophisticated investors across the UK and Europe to discuss their attitudes towards investments in Alternative Assets.
From the investors interviewed, 53% stated that their appetite for alternative assets will increase over the next 12 months. Another 6.4% said they would decrease. The investors pointed out at three key factors for this growth, one of them was the current rate of inflation, another one was the need to diversify portfolios under the current circumstances of the markets, and the last one was because of the attractive higher potential returns.
