Alternative Investments: Moving Beyond Stocks, Bonds and Cash

While most investors turn to stocks, bonds and cash, they are not your only options. Far from it! And, for savvy investors who move beyond conventional investments, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Looking for alternative investment ideas? You have plenty to choose from — private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, managed futures and derivatives contracts, as well as real estate, oil, precious metal commodities, collectibles and more!

That 150-year-old bottle of wine and the 1907 Saint-Gaudens Gold $20 Double Eagle? Yep. They’re both alternative investments.

Alternative investments can offer substantial returns along with long-term tax benefits and hedges or diversification for your portfolio. But, they are definitely not for everyone.

They are also complex in nature and are less liquid than conventional investments. Valuation can be difficult, especially with art and other collectibles, and alternative investments often have significant minimum investments and fee structures, which is why they are typically held by accredited, high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.

And, as with any investment, due diligence is a critical part of developing successful alternative investing strategies.
