Very Simply, Alternative Investments are those which are not simple stocks and bonds…which are the normal investment selection for most Americans which includes mutual funds and most all retirement plans. Alternative investments include real estate (after all, most us understand real estate much more than stocks and bonds).
Alternatives investments might compliment your existing investment portfolio by providing higher levels of income and potential growth – while providing diversification from the stock market. We are well aware of the volatility of the stock market lately. We love the stock market for “long-term growth” but don’t love it for reliable income. Consider adding alternatives. Just ask us.
