The Top Alternative Mutual Fund Launches of 2014

Shauna O'Brien Sep 23, 2014

Alternative mutual funds have been gaining popularity among mutual fund investors. These funds differ from traditional mutual funds as they use hedge fund-like characteristics. In 2014, there have been nearly 50 new alternative mutual funds launched. Below are the top 10 launches so far.
Despite the rising popularity of passively-managed products, alternative vehicles are still gaining traction as investors seek out creative ways to generate both meaningful and uncorrelated sources of returns amid all-time highs for major equity benchmarks on Wall Street. Uncertainty surrounding the Fed's next move regarding interest rates is also prompting many to seek out alternative vehicles that aren't necessarily linked to well-known benchmarks.
