Alternative Investments - An Overview

 In a world where the stock market, like the global economy, can be hard to predict, more and more people are turning to alternative investments. Alternative investments are just what they sound like – ways to invest and grow your money which don't fit the traditional mould of stocks and bonds. The most common form of alternative investments are precious metals, primarily gold and silver, but can also include everything from financial assets and hedge funds to fine wines and stamps.

Commodities and Assets

Various forms of assets are a popular choice as an alternative investment. Private equity, hedge funds, film production, venture capital and other financial derivatives are all alternative options which still have the same kind of feel as traditional investments in stocks or bonds. Many first time investors prefer these options.

Tangible Investments - A Different Route

Tangible investments such as fine wines, stamps, art, antiques and coins have also grown in popularity. For some it has offered a chance to expand their personal interests in the name of investing their money while, for others, the opportunity to invest in these items has actually inspired a genuine interest in the field. Investing n these small items can bring a pretty tidy return as well. The Cherrystone auction house specialises in philatelic auctions where lots of stamps are sold every month. They see thousands of dollars pass over their auction block and every month they have noteworthy sales. In January of 2013, for example, they had a small lot of three 1933 Russian Air Post stamps sell for an amazing $14,000.
