"Every Hedge Fund Firm Is Working On a Liquid Alternative Product"

News summary by MFWire's editors

"Every hedge fund firm is working on a liquid alternative product."

So says Nadia Papagiannis, director of alternative investment strategy for global third-party distribution at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, in a Reuters article by Sam Forgione about the liquid alts fever that fundsters have come to know so well.

"I wouldn't be surprised, if we had a shock to the system, that we would see unprecedented inflows into alternative mutual funds," Papagiannis adds.

The article cites several advisors on their alternative mutual fund thoughts and offers words of warning from Josh Charney, alternative investment analyst at Morningstar:

"The biggest risk," Charney tells Reuters, "is underperformance."

And Reuters also name drops alt funds from AQR, BlackRock and Blackstone.

The wire service argues that demand for liquid alts "has been insatiable," with 2014 inflows through May of $13.5 billion.
