- The PowerShares Multi-Strategy Alternative Portfolio (LALT) is expected to launch on May 29th and is supported by a partnership between Invesco and Morgan Stanley.
- As described by Dan Draper, Invesco PowerShares Managing Director of Global ETFs: “One of the primary goals for investors that use alternative strategies is to minimize exposure to equity and bond markets, and to achieve better risk-adjusted returns compared to portfolios consisting only of traditional asset classes. LALT is an actively managed long-short strategy that seeks to provide efficient exposure to a broad mix of alternative-asset classes.”

- To those who remember the risk on/risk off days of 2011 when the entire universe of assets seemingly moved together based on the utterings of some politician here or across the pond, today is quite a different matter. The instances of days in which more than 90% of S&P 500 stocks move together have all but vanished late last year and this year.
- The 65-day average correlation of stocks fell to 0.52% in January vs. an average of 0.63% between 2009 and 2013 (it rose as high as 0.84% late in 2011).
- Investors have responded by moving money into so-called actively managed strategies, with those funds seeing inflows of $1.3B this year on top of $9.8B in 2013. It's a small amount, but contrasts with $360B pulled out of such funds between 2009-2012.

Jun. 11, 2013, 9:41 AMAdvisorShares will be closing its actively managed sector rotation ETF SSAM on 14th June. The fund has failed to generate investor interest, losing more than 6% in the year and a half since it launched. SPY is up 20% over that period. Closure of ETFs and ETNs with unsuccessful strategies sets up the industry for smooth long-term growth. | Comment!
