Market changes have created a demand for non-correlated investments and alternative financial strategies, leading to huge growth in Best International’s alternative and asset management divisions.

Successful examples include Best International’s innovative Greyfriars Portfolio Six Service, launched as an ‘industry first’ in 2014, comprising of non-correlated investments and reaching more than £40m in 2015.

This service achieved projected annual returns of approximately 8-10% for investors, with almost £4m new capital raised each month, propelling Best International’s status as the UK’s leading authority on alternative and non-correlated investment strategies.

The market reported one of the worst starts to the year in January, with mild panic setting in across global markets.

It is no revelation that investors are generally advised to diversify their property portfolios, however, we’ve seen that mass market trends have focused on conventional investment opportunities, which are linked to the market and therefore larger fluctuations do occur.

Non-correlated investments do not track the market and hence are far less volatile, which is why we believe it is crucial to consider non-correlated investment options as part of a diversified property portfolio. As Portfolio Six comprises of non-correlated investments, there is far greater potential for investors to achieve higher returns.
