The market for alternative mutual funds continues to grow. According to data from Morningstar and the SEC, assets in alternative mutual funds have gone from under $50 billion in 2008 to close to $260 billion in 2013.

 

Much of that growth has been over the last two years. There were reportedly over $40 billion of inflows to alternative mutual fund assets in 2013, compared to $14.5 billion in 2012, and overall assets increased 63% from 2012 to 2013. So far in 2014, money continues to pour into alternative mutual funds, with nearly $17 billion of inflows through July of this year. The number of alternative mutual fund continues to rise, too, with nearly 500 now according to Bloomberg.

 

Even with the success of the last two years, industry experts are still predicting further growth for alternative mutual funds, with financial research firm Cerulli Associates forecasting that in ten years alternative mutual fund assets will comprise 14% of all mutual fund assets, which currently represent more than $11 trillion.
