Milwaukee, WI, United States, 2011/01/12 - Quest CE’s “Alternative Investments” course achieves utilizing alternative investments as a tool to reduce overall investment risk through portfolio diversification.
Quest Continuing Education Solutions (Quest CE) is proud to offer the industry’s most well-informed courses to top financial services professionals. Recent research indicates that discussions around alternative investments are becoming more widely held. Quest CE’s “Alternative Investments” course achieves utilizing alternative investments as a tool to reduce overall investment risk through portfolio diversification.
Alternative investments are not the three traditional asset types (stocks, bonds and cash). With attractive risk-adjusted return potential, alternative investments include hedge funds, managed futures, real estate, commodities, private equity, venture capital and derivatives contracts.
Most alternative investment assets are held by institutional investors or accredited, high-net-worth individuals because of their complex nature, limited regulations and relative lack of liquidity. As professionals communicate this financial option with affluent clients and institutional investors, Quest CE wants to ensure they are knowledgeable in the subject matter.
The “Alternative Investments” course may also be bundled in Quest CE’s Firm Element Program package. Clients have the opportunity to customize their program which can include:
• On-Demand Annual Compliance Meeting
• On-Demand Annual Compliance Questionnaire
• Needs Analysis
• Outside Business Activities Tracking
• Gifts and Entertainment Tracking
• Political Contribution Tracking
• Branch Audit Tool
