Partner with a proven alternatives leader to potentially enhance your asset allocation

Alternatives Capabilities

Innovative strategies seeking to manage risk and enhance investment returns—that’s what Calamos Investments has offered investment professionals since 1977. We believe diversification is important in all market environments and that our alternatives can provide a range of compelling solutions to enhance your portfolio.

We attribute our overall growth in liquid alternative assets under management to increasing investor demand, investment professional interest, broadening platform availability and—most importantly—to our funds’ histories of delivering performance in line with investors’ high expectations.
