The market for alternative mutual funds is expanding rapidly. In 2007, there were 155 distinct funds within Morningstar alternative categories holding $36.5 billion in assets under management. The number of distinct alternative funds jumped to 289 with $77.1 billion in assets under management as of the end of May 2012. The proliferation of products comes as industry observers predict boom years ahead for alternatives in the retail markets.

Citigroup is predicting that hedge fund retail assets will more than triple over the next four years, increasing from $305 billion at year-end 2012 to $940 billion.  Financial research firm Cerulli Associates Inc. estimates that alternative mutual fund assets will go from 2.8% of all mutual fund assets today to 9.7% in five years and 15.8% in 10 years. Consulting firm McKinsey & Co. forecasts that assets in U.S. retail alternative products will nearly double by the end of 2015, growing from 7% of all retail fund assets currently to 13%.
