Welcome to Alternative Investments HQ

Our aim is to be the authority on all forms of alternative investments.

What is an alternative investment?

This is quite an expansive question and can incorporate a really wide range of asset types. In essence, an alternative investment is any investment that is not one of the three traditional asset types (stocks, bonds and cash).

The world of alternative investments is a murky one. Whilst the potential rewards are often high, most areas are completely unregulated and highly illiquid, as such the risks can be quite high.

As with any investment type, there are legitimate opportunities but there are also scams. See our guide to common investment scams and how to avoid them.

Our aim is to guide you through the various alternative investment types out there so you can make an informed choice. We do not offer advice, merely information and you are advised to seek professional counsel before committing any funds.
