“For example, the plan sponsor with a 20% allocation to alternatives (and with the remaining 80% of its portfolio invested at the same traditionalist ratios) and a 7% per annum forward equity return expectation, is implying that its alternatives investments must return 17% in order to achieve an overall portfolio return of 7.75%.”
