Volatile financial markets are driving investors to seek sources of diversification and means to improve stability for their portfolios.

Balfour Capital Group has been involved in this asset class for more than ten years now and offers a wide range of insurance-linked investments from open-ended funds for all kinds of investors through to customized mandates for institutional clients.
Hedge funds permit a very active investment approach across a range of asset classes, making them a good way to supplement a traditional portfolio and increase its diversification. Balfour Capital Group has invested in hedge funds since 1997, developing an extensive network of the most successful hedge fund managers in the world.

Private equity involves investors taking a stake in an unlisted company. The aim is to help it through an important phase of its development (start-up, growth, etc.) in order to sell the stake for a profit at a later stage. Investing in private equity can allow investors to improve their portfolio’s risk/return ratio, achieve higher returns and increase their portfolio diversification.
