The service offers educational material on private equity, infrastructure, real estate and credit assets.
Investment firm KKR has introduced “KKR Alternatives Unlocked,” a digital platform designed to help financial advisors and their clients better understand the alternatives investing landscape.
The platform offers content for financial advisors and individual investors, including macroeconomic insights, investment perspectives and educational material on private equity, infrastructure, real estate and credit asset classes.
While 81% of financial professionals agree that offering alternative investment opportunities can differentiate them competitively, only 1.4% of the estimated $192 trillion in the wealth sector globally was allocated to alternative asset classes in 2022, the firm said, citing outside research.
Perceived inaccessibility and complexity create challenges for wider adoption by financial advisors, KKR said.
“The knowledge gap around the alternatives landscape has long served as a barrier for individuals’ access to private markets. Alternatives Unlocked was created to bridge that gap, so individuals can understand the same investments that have long been a good source of returns and diversification for institutional investors,” Eric Mogelof, a KKR partner and head of the firm’s global client solutions, said Wednesday.
The platform offers multimedia expert content, including live presentations and events, on a range of topics serving all audience levels, from the basics to complex portfolio construction.
Alternatives Unlocked is currently available to financial professionals globally, KKR said.
