INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

Alpha Alternatives is an alternatives-only house focusing on sustainable alpha generation through differentiated investment strategies.

 

We understand that different asset classes and investment styles perform differently at various points in the economic cycle. The alpha that can be generated by combining various strategies and efficient allocation of funds across asset classes is significant. Our biggest strength is in understanding the wide spaces between asset classes and creating a suite of innovative intersecting products.

As asset managers, we believe that we have no right to charge our investors for the returns generated by the market (beta). Therefore, we have multiple levels of ownership of alpha delivery across all our strategies. Further, our fee model reflects this belief – we do not charge any AuM-based fees, only performance-based fees. We find our investment strategies so compelling that we have a large amount of our own proprietary capital invested in our products, thus creating another layer of alignment with our client interests.

Commodity

We are one of the leading companies active in agricultural value chain. We believe that the agri-commodity industry is at the cusp of a huge evolution. We offer end to end management of physical inventory through our procurement, logistics management, sales and research services. With a strong presence across 8 states and 50+ Mandis across the country, we have built strong business relationships across value chain.
