John Greenwood, Chief Executive, Creechurch Capital speaks to Investment Week

January 23, 2013

He said: “Currently, we have approximately 20% of all our portfolios in alternatives. Popular options in recent years have been forestry, life settlements, wine, fine art and diamonds. We have two main areas we are particularly interested in at the moment. Firstly, alternative finance funds, whereby funds have come in to provide finance to areas such as agriculture.

“It is a very robust income story but requires a lot of due diligence. It gives a nice uncorrelated investment stream. The other is property. There are a number of niche areas within that which have been doing well recently. We have invested in student accommodation but have liquidated that position and moved more recently into commercial and niche care property.

“Although we are aware there are many opportunities such as wine and forestry, we like to go back to things that we understand and can monitor.”
