The selection of alternative investment funds to choose from at Evli includes private equity, real estate, forest, private debt and infrastructure funds. Managing those funds is a 23-person team with over 20 years of experience, on average, in the field of alternative investments.

Why invest in alternative investment funds?

Alternative investments complement traditional investments and diversify risk. For the long-term investor, alternative investments can offer diversification, inflation hedge and an attractive source of returns.

For whom is an alternative investment fund suitable?

Due to long investment horizon and high level of risk, alternative investment funds are only suitable for professional investors and, depending on the product, for certain non-professional investors who are considered to have sufficient understanding of the fund and its investment activities.
