Alternative investments cover a wide range of assets from commodities such as wine, paintings, antiques and gold to buy-to-let property, venture capital and even natural resources.
Gold has been one alternative investment that has seen huge growth in its value over the last ten years. Alternative investments provide different investment strategies to traditional forms of investing such as buying shares, bonds and stocks.
Alternative investments in painting and antiques are considered more stable than investment products traded in more volatile areas such as financial and commodity markets and they allow investors to enjoy their investments as well as maximise returns.
