Here's something to consider. The wealthiest people in the world don't waste their time investing in the stock market. The majority of their net worth is allocated to alternative investments—and on today's episode, you'll learn why.
I'm speaking with Christopher Schelling, the Director of Alternative Investments for Venturi Private Wealth. As an institutional investor, Chris has invested roughly $5 billion and met with over 3,000 managers across private equity, private real estate, real assets, private credit, natural resources, hedge funds, liquid alternatives, crypto, and more.
He is currently a contributing columnist for Institutional Investor, has written over 60 articles on investing, and is the author of Better than Alpha: Three Steps to Capturing Excess Returns in a Changing World.
Chris was named one of Money Management Intelligence's 2012 Rising Stars of Public Funds, a Rising Star of Hedge Funds by Institutional Investor in 2014, received the Institutional Investor Intelligence Award for Absolute Return Strategies in 2016, and was named a Top 30 Private Equity Investor by Trusted Insight in 2018.
He has over 20 years of experience in the investment industry, nearly all focused on alternative investments—which is the main topic of today's conversation.
In this episode, Chris brings a wealth of knowledge and teaches you all about the benefits of alternative investments. We talk about the problems with institutional investing, the risk and reward of private credit funds, investing in private companies pre-IPO, cryptocurrency, and so much more!
Chris is giving away one of his most popular articles, The Dangerous Democratization of Alternatives.
