According to the Russell Investments’ 2010 Global Survey on Alternative Investing, institutional investors are sticking with alternatives and are, in fact, expecting to increase their allocations to alternatives from 14% to 19% over the next two to three years. The survey also finds real estate, private equity and hedge funds remain the preferred alternative types, but there’s increased interest in commodities and infrastructure as value sources given inflation concerns.
