As demand for liquid investments increases, so too does the premium paid for them. Significant value can be found at the opposite end of the liquidity spectrum if investors know where to look.

As demand for liquid assets continues to explode, our firm is focusing its efforts towards less liquid assets where we see tremendous growth opportunities

West Mountain, LLC, an Atlanta-based investment adviser, announced today that it is increasing its exposure to select less liquid investments in its flagship investment vehicle. "Over the past few years, interest in liquid assets has exploded as the markets have become more and more erratic", says Managing Director, Paul Alar. "The high liquidity most investors now demand has resulted in significant market dislocations that we are now taking advantage of", he continues.

As with any investment vehicle or strategy, the more it is in demand, the higher the premium paid; and higher premiums cut into expected returns. Therefore, less liquid investments, which are currently shunned by the investment community, offer compelling opportunities. Of course, not all investments, less liquid or otherwise, are equal. West Mountain is focusing its efforts on small credit providers because despite reports to the contrary, lending remains very constrained.

"We've been successful in the past going against the grain. The current lending environment is very reminiscent of the subprime housing and European sovereign debt crises, both of which we were well positioned for", Alar mentions as a final comment.
