"Every hedge fund firm is working on a liquid alternative product."
So says Nadia Papagiannis
, director of alternative investment strategy for global third-party distribution at Goldman Sachs Asset Management
, in a Reuters article
by Sam Forgione about the liquid alts fever that fundsters have come to know so well.
"I wouldn't be surprised, if we had a shock to the system, that we would see unprecedented inflows into alternative mutual funds," Papagiannis adds.

, alternative investment analyst at Morningstar
"The biggest risk," Charney tells Reuters
, "is underperformance."
