Quotes from Author Stephen Todd Walker

"Riding the perfect wave in the ocean is analogous to finding the right Alternative for a portfolio and earning a handsome return. The Alternatives space is vast like an ocean and will one day eclipse both the equity and fixed income markets combined."

"One should consider all asset classes especially those they do not fully understand because that is where an investor will likely find the best opportunity going forward."

"The purpose of this book is to enable people to understand Alternatives and how one can use them to build better, more diversified portfolios (whether they are for institutional investors or for high net worth and/or retail investors). Navigating Alternatives is not easy and requires a skill set similar to that of a world class surfer riding waves in the ocean."

Few finance books today capture the true essence of tactical allocation and why it is crucial to make adjustments to a portfolio like Understanding Alternative Investments does. By understanding risk premiums change with market conditions, it can be possible to employ tactical asset allocation strategies to improve investment returns.
