Strategies tailored to your goals

Over the long term, through diverse market conditions, an allocation to alternative investments can help improve the risk and return versus a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds.

With the markets delivering modest returns, alternative investments may serve as alternate sources to potentially generate above market returns for your portfolio.

Not all U.S. companies are public. Alternative investment strategies can help you expand the opportunity set of your portfolio by offering you the ability to invest in a broader set of firms.

J.P. Morgan undertakes a robust fund due diligence and manager selection process to identify strategies that can help you enhance your
portfolio. We offer exclusive opportunities and attractive investment minimums, giving you more opportunities to invest towards your goals using alternative investments.

Adding alternatives to your portfolio

The appropriate amount to allocate will depend on several factors, including your investment objectives, the size of any existing allocation to alternatives, your time horizon, and your tolerance for the lower liquidity of alternatives relative to traditional assets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Alternative investments, or commonly referred as alternative
assets, is an investment in either a tangible or financial asset primarily within private markets, excluding traditional investments such as stocks, bonds
and cash.

They are generally comprised of private equity, real assets, private credit, and hedge funds. They are commonly known as active, return-seeking strategies that have varied risk profiles and differs from traditional long-only investments.

Alternative investments can help you grow your wealth, diversify your portfolio and potentially uncover non-traditional returns in a low yield market. The “traditional” mix of stocks and bonds may no longer provide the returns investors need to reach their goals, causing alternative investments to go from optional to potentially essential portfolio building blocks. Depending on your goals, your J.P. Morgan Wealth Advisor can help you get started with alternative investing.

Investing in alternative assets involves higher risks than traditional investments and is suitable only for sophisticated investors. Alternative investments involve greater risks than traditional investments and should not be deemed a complete investment program. They are not tax efficient and an investor should consult with his/her tax advisor prior to investing. Alternative investments have higher fees than traditional investments and they may also be highly leveraged and engage in speculative investment techniques, which can magnify the potential for investment loss or gain. The value of the investment may fall as well as rise and investors may get back less than they invested.

Borrowing with securities as collateral involves certain risks, including the possibility that you may need to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account to meet a maintenance call, and that securities in the account may be sold to meet the maintenance call.  Proper management of your account and a thorough understanding of the conditions that may affect your investments will assist you in effectively using the margin lending program.​
