Niche strategy investing could be defined as any investment that doesn’t fit neatly into a defined category or traditional set of parameters. It requires unique expertise and sophistication to pursue, manage and evaluate it. It’s likely to involve investments that are harder to understand, complex and go against traditional norms and trends and are often private and relatively illiquid. But therein lie the opportunities. Investments that are not popular or mainstream are likely to provide premiums for those who can handle the eccentricities — just like private equity back in the day before everyone was doing it. In this session, hear experts in a variety of niche investments who will discuss how to “think outside the box” when considering how to generate return premiums.
