Hang up

On your broker,if he or she calls with one of these investments.

Long/ short equity funds, market-neutral funds, managed-future funds, nontraditional bond funds, foreign currency, and bear market funds.
Many are private investments telemarketing from call centers (always a red flag); others have mainstream and are offered through mutual funds sold by brokerage houses and investment advisers.
Often these do deliver performance unrelated to the market. Unfortunately, that performance is typically terrible. Morningstar recently reported that the average five-year performance of alternative mutual funds was to lose 2 percent annually. Many of these funds have zero expected return before costs.
