In the wake of significant economic volatility in the US markets, alternative funds have become increasingly popular choices for savvy investors. In particular, the foreign exchange market offers a unique opportunity to remove certain macroeconomic risks attendant to traditional intranational hedge funds. As such, it should come as no surprise to educated investors that the forex is the largest and most liquid market in the world.

Well-designed hedge funds invariably attempt to minimize risk by diversifying portfolio holdings in one or several ways. However, even the most diversified funds typically dilute risk within an individual economy. Forex funds, on the other hand, provide the opportunity for investors to diversify their portfolio on a truly international level.

Alternative Funds Mean Flexibility

Another significant advantage of alternative funds such as those tied to the forex is that they are both geographically and temporally flexible. When significant data emerges from elsewhere in the world, such alternative funds are able to react in real time--any time. Open 24 hours a day during the work week, with no central geographic location, this market allows a level of flexibility that traditional markets simply cannot hope to match.

Best of all, top forex funds are led by some of the world's most successful and innovative money managers. That means that you can enjoy the benefits of the widest possible reach and the deepest possible experience. Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?
