When considering alternative investments, you should consider the fact that some products use leverage and other speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss and be illiquid, are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors, may involve complex tax structures and delays in distributing important tax information, are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds, often charge high fees including incentive fees, and in many cases have underlying investments that are not transparent and are known only to the investment manager.
