Crystal Century Investment Announces Private Client Alternative Investment Experience

Alternative asset manager advances efforts to bring qualified alternative solutions to private client division.

NEW YORK, July 26, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Crystal Century Investment, the New York and Hong Kong based alternative investment manager, has today announced the launch of a new alternative investment experience aimed at providing private qualified investors with easier access to fund based and direct alternative solutions.

To compliment it's existing offering, Crystal Century Investment's alternative division will integrate technology-driven capabilities to enhance the client experience as the firm continues to cement its foothold as a leading independent alternative investment manager.

Speaking on behalf of the firm, Michael Chapel, Head of Alternative Platform;

"Alternative investments are increasingly playing a more important role in the management of portfolio diversification. Specifically, we here at Crystal Century have experienced a rise in demand for such investments from our private client division. In addressing these demands, and to satisfy the evolving needs of private investors, we have developed our existing alternative offering to enhance the investment experience for our private investors."

Working to meet the alternative investment demands of family offices and institutional clients, Crystal Century Investment has presented it's alternative offering for over two decades. The launch of the new alternative experience will create a wider appeal for private investors in response to prolonged market uncertainties.

"The wider market has in most recent years has responded to evolving demands by creating an alternative arena aimed specifically at meeting the needs of private investors. Regulation has improved and transparency requirements have a fresh clarity over alternative situations that in the past were perhaps deemed a little murky."

"With all these changes, the alternative investment arena has grown at an outstanding pace. We believe that with this new approach, our private clients will have more confidence to increase their exposure to alternative classes."

"We are expecting to see a sizable shift in how assets are allocated throughout the portfolios we manage. At the moment the average exposure to alternatives makes up approximately 5% of private client portfolios. We anticipate that during 2017 the percentage of alternatives in portfolios will increase as much as 20%," continued Chapel.
