With large value of assets under management, and with consent of their HNW clients, private banks can access a wider range of investment possibilities including alternative investments such us hedge funds. Such non-traditional investments are usually not available to the regular bank clients due to the high minimum investment threshold. Also, such investments are much more risky than the traditional ones and without help of a financial advisor a person not knowledgeable about the financial markets could lose a big part of the invested money.
