We assess the addition of alternative assets to pension fund portfolios in terms of the total benefit derived from diversification, addition of positive skewness, and the elimination of left tails in returns. During 1994–2012, adding portfolios of hedge funds produced significantly higher total benefits than adding real estate, commodities, foreign equities, mutual funds, funds of funds, as well as some counter cyclical and non-cyclical assets. Conditioning on past total benefits improves the out-of-sample performance even further.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-12-14T12:29:02Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Jackwerth, Jens Carsten</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-12-14T12:29:02Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
