I received an email yesterday in response to the market turmoil were experiencing of late. He made mention of his solid faith in unlisted assets and their place in a portfolio. I had to google what they were as it's something I've never heard of before, nor something I can recall mentioned on this site. He was basically saying that unlisted assets won't light a fire under your belly when the stockmarket goes boom, but they also won't plunge as much when the market goes south. Does anyone want to share their experience, views, opinions and educated wise views about this asset class?
