**Investors should understand that investments in non-correlated asset classes are not suitable for all investors. Alternative investments involve additional risks such as liquidity, tax consequences, creditworthiness and a potential lack of a secondary market. This show is not intended to be used as specific investment advice as many of the concepts presented are for discussion only. Please consult a financial professional prior to engaging in any strategy to determine if it is appropriate given your personal situation.
