In the beginning, alternative investments were only available to what most would consider the wealthy. The SEC set the definition of the wealthy with their accredited investor definition. Here we're going to introduce you to six investments you may not have considered.
Alternative investments are not mutual funds, ETFs, or index funds. They include offerings like private equity, real estate, hedge funds, venture capital, managed futures, and derivative products.
Crowdfunding in real estate, like with individual or small business crowdfunding allows smaller investors into an investment space that hasn't been available to them in the past.
