An area where previous research has been scarce regarding the factors motivating investments in alternative assets. The aim is to address this gap by enhancing the understanding of asset allocation strategies in alternative assets and specifically the investment motives, decision factors, performance and various outlooks supporting their allocation. To achieve the objective, we composed a survey directed towards wealth management firms in Europe and to pension funds and insurance companies in Sweden.
