Alternative Assets

What Are Alternative Assets?

When you think of investing, you likely think of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs. These products are the standard assets in which most individuals invest. They have one major disadvantage however– they’re all highly correlated to one another. In order to diversify and seek returns that are not as volatile, you need something that can continue to perform well regardless of market conditions. Sometimes, it’s beneficial to take on alternative asset classes that, to varying degrees, decouple our savings from the ups and downs of the markets, providing greater overall stability to our portfolio. These asset classes include, but are not limited to, hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, real estate, cryptocurrency, REITs, rare art, and collectibles. 

Alternative assets aren’t just a means to a specific end, such as fortifying your portfolio via diversification, hedging, and tax benefits. They can be a way to access investment ideas that are not available in public markets or a way to monetize unique assets.

What Are the Benefits of Alternative Assets?

Alternative assets aren’t just a means to a specific end, such as fortifying your portfolio via diversification, hedging, and tax benefits. They can also monetize an existing hobby, transforming personal passions into profitable investments, whether that’s through collecting rare art, investing in vintage automobiles, or acquiring valuable memorabilia. Alternatively, you may discover a new passion in your search for alternative investing methods.
