Alternative Investment Allocation

Hello All, Does anyone know of any studies, reports, or sources suggesting the percentage allocation of private equity or hedge fund investments in an individual investors portfolio? Thanks

I am not aware of such a survey but I think it depends on the individual’s situation, risk tolerance and time horizon. Both hedge funds and PE require a longer time horizon. If you run and optimization the answer you might get 75% to 80% allocated to Alts which is unreasonable. A rule of thumb (for institutional investors at least) is that start at 5% allocations to PE, HF, RE etc. and further increments should also be in the 5% range.
