London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 7 March 2012
Lakewood Asset Management, the Mayfair based investment brokerage, has recently become the talk of the town in investor circles due to an innovative approach to portfolio management solutions.
The company specialises in providing alternative asset classes to retail investors that are looking to diversify away from more traditional asset such as equities, bonds, ISA’s. Their investment offering includes carbon trading, agricultural projects and forestry. Many of these asset classes have a track record of far outperforming the equity- and moneymarkets.
In a recent interview the CEO explained the logic behind alternative assets. He was quoted as saying, “There seems to be this astonishing believe amongst the investor public that the traditional investment vehicles are their only option. If this was the case it would be a daunting picture indeed. The reasons are simple.
"Banks are offering record low interest rates to savers, stock market volatility are at very high levels due to deep skepticism and uncertainty in the broader global economic outlook and inflation are still at relative highs. This results in uncertain yield forecast and likely disappointing returns in the end. Traditional investments therefore simply doesn’t ‘cut the mustard’ to deliver growth in the real value of an investor’s wealth position.”
He further went on saying, “…luckily it’s not all bad. If investors are generally willing to think outside the box, value propositions are really all around us. Forestry projects for example have yielded consistent returns in the past for investors and exposure to this asset class can greatly add to your portfolio’s performance on a risk adjusted basis. It doesn’t stop there however as there are many innovative ways that our clients our now positioning themselves to take advantage of potential significant gains within an acceptable time frame.”
Based on this, investors now feel there may well be a glimmer of hope in generally very daunting market conditions.
