There is a section within the alternative investment space where inefficiencies are numerous, competition is low, and active management by skilled and focused investment specialists can add substantial value. We call this segment of the investment universe “Niche Alternatives”.
Niche Alternatives build on the concept of superior risk and reward. This segment of the alternative investment market has historically shown strong outperformance and is currently very attractively priced in comparison to traditional as well as established alternative asset classes.
Progressive has extensive experience across alternative and niche markets, and the team is well positioned to target innovative investments opportunities that are beyond classic alternative investment strategies.
The offering is designed mainly for institutional clients, family offices and HNWI.
