Alternative investments, also known “alts,” provide superior returns and a hedge on conventional financial instruments such as stocks and bonds. They include private equity, real estate, precious metals, cryptocurrencies, and other assets.
Alts offer a wide range of options to customize your portfolio and diversify in different sectors. For instance, you could base your portfolio on companies committed to environmental sustainability or devote a portion of it to digital assets.
Startups and businesses are increasingly choosing to avoid public stock markets and to secure funding through private offerings instead.
