April 3, 2020

OSAKA, Japan (MO.Properties) – Naotsune Alliance, a financial advisor for the world of business that provides discretionary investment advisory services for individual clients, wealthy families, institutional investors and investment trusts, with extensive fund management experience and product development capabilities, today revealed the results of the company’s most recent Market Outlook titled The 1K Report due to the participation of over one thousand of the firm’s own international clients during the survey. The investors that where involved in the project are coming from Europe and Asia, and the results are showing an increased interest in alternative investment strategies.

While performing a series of market surveys aimed at enhancing the firm’s understanding of market trend and client sentiment, Naotsune Alliance has decided to employ a bigger amount of resources in order to observe the overall direction of assets and capital invested by private clients and family offices in Europe and Asia. Therefore, the increased efforts have produced a big Report that shows, after surveying a little over one thousand investors, that the investment of assets by private entities in alternative strategies has increased by 17% in the last 12 months.

Based on the data collected and analysed regarding engagement of capital and assets in non-conventional investment vehicles the percentage numbers are as follows:

Investments in Real Estate increased by 12.7% year-on-year
Investments in Cryptocurrency increased by 21.5% year-on-year
Investments in Commodities increased by 17.6% year-on-year

Naotsune Alliance’s 1K Report also points out that the increase in private clients’ investments in alternative strategies is driven by a younger generation of investors that accumulates more income and is searching for other ways besides the stock market to invest. Thus, the number of private investors under the age of 45 investing in alternative strategies has increased by 23% in the last year, as opposed to only a 7% increase in private investors above 45 years of age, who prefer the traditional channels of market engagement.

Naotsune Alliance is in the process of analysing further market data and relevant information in order to release other market surveys aimed at shedding light on the overall outlook of the Asian and global financial markets.
