by James Faulkner | Episode 8 | 26 September 2019 | Length: 0:25:07

Alex Barr of Henderson Alternative Strategies Trust invests in a range of alternative assets, many of which wouldn’t normally be readily accessible to retail investors. We’ll be talking about why alternative assets are such a useful diversifier, especially in a bull market that’s looking pretty late cycle after ten years of rising share prices and we’ll also be taking a closer look at some of the portfolio constituents.
