Altegris Investments has announced a strategic partnership with United Capital Financial Advisers to provide US wealth advisers with access to alternative investments through the Altegris Premier platform.

'The Altegris Premier platform is designed to provide access to leading edge investment products with the potential to strengthen client portfolios - to both weather the current financial storm and deliver long-term performance as the economy recovers.'
