Niche Strategy Investing could be defined as any investment that doesn’t fit neatly into a defined category or traditional set of parameters. It requires unique expertise and sophistication to pursue it, to manage it and to evaluate it. It’s likely to involve investments that are harder to understand, complex, go against traditional norms/trends and are often private and relatively illiquid. But therein lie the opportunities. Investments that are not popular or mainstream, are likely to provide premiums for those who can handle the eccentricities. Think of private equity back in the day before everyone was doing it.
Today sophisticated investors are allocating assets to strategies like non-traditional asset backed securities, life insurance policies and settlement claims, and litigation finance just to identify a few. In fact, not too long ago the CFA Society of N.Y. hosted a ground braking conference on litigation finance.
Tonight we are pleased to introduce you to experts in a variety of niche investments who will discuss their investment specialties. They will reinforce the case for “thinking outside the box” when considering how to generate return premiums
