Alternative mutual fund assets are increasingly on the radar screen of asset managers, both those who handle institutional and retail accounts.

The latest evidence of the march to alternatives comes from Cerulli Associates, which reveals in an October 2013 report that alternative mutual funds will comprise close to 14 percent of all mutual fund assets in the next 10 years.
