Institutional investors think equity markets have peaked, hedge fund returns haven’t met expectations and other alternatives such as real estate are overvalued—but they continue to want natural resources in their investment portfolios.

They especially favor upstream energy ideas, as opposed to water and agricultural investments found in the broader natural resource category.

Some 47% of respondents said they would commit the same amount of capital to natural resources in the next 12 months as compared to the prior 12 months. Another 28% said they’d place less capital than before and 25% said they plan to make larger commitments than before.
