Alternative investments

Our long track record in alternatives investing helps us look beyond the traditional and develop new funds to address key investment challenges.

ALTERNATIVES OVERVIEW

Wellington Management is one of the world’s foremost investment managers in alternative investments. Having managed alternative approaches for over 20 years, our experience and depth in the field enable us to look beyond the traditional and develop strategies that aim to address the investment challenges of tomorrow.

Our alternatives capabilities are powered by a combination of the innovative spirit of a boutique investment manager and the stability and depth of resources offered by a global asset manager, backed by Wellington Management’s private partnership model. By offering global research and world-class investment infrastructure, we are able to attract and retain the finest alternatives talent. Our culture promotes teamwork and the sharing and testing of ideas so that we offer differentiated approaches to our clients.

We build alternative strategies that draw on our longstanding expertise across all major asset classes, from hedged equities to absolute return fixed income, multi-asset alternative beta and risk premia, real assets and private equity.

All investors should consider the risks that may impact their capital, before investing. The value of your investment may become worth more or less than at the time of the original investment.
