AlphaCore’s Dick Pfister Discusses What Investors Need to Know About Alternatives in CNBC

In a recent article published by CNBC, AlphaCore CEO, Dick Pfister, is featured among industry experts discussing the homework investors need to do before investing in alternatives. After the financial crisis of 2008, many investors, especially baby boomers, realized they can no longer weather 50 percent loss so more people are turning to alternative investments.

The article delves into various categories of alternatives, such as non-traditional bonds, long-short equity and managed futures (just to name a few), and what investors need to know about each category before investing. “Like everything in the world of investing, you need to look before you leap – this is especially true in the world of alternatives,” says Mr. Pfister.
