Alternative Assets defined: Alternative assets are any non-traditional assets with potential economic value that would not be found in a standard investment portfolio. Due to the unconventional nature of alternative assets, valuation of some of these assets can be difficult. Those asset classes outside the major mainstream classes of equities, fixed income and (usually) property where exposure is normally achieved via “bought” (long only) positions. Management of such asset classes may be active or passive.
