Salim6 can someone pls explain why C ?
SAB1987 @Salim6 - Firstly you can rule out A because alternative investments are relatively common and then the decision between B and C is whether they are new or old. If you think about alternatives such as commodities, real estate, fine wine, etc then these are very old forms of investment. So C is your answer.
ascruggs92 This one confused me a little but it makes sense now. An example would be that Hedge Funds (considered an alternative investment) typically own stocks and bonds, which are some of the oldest investment classes
