Alternative Investments

We also offer more complex investments as Alternatives to traditional investing. Sometimes Investors desire these types of investments to diversify an investment portfolio and to provide different returns under various market conditions that may not be correlated to traditional investments. These investments may also have certain tax advantages that certain investors may find desirable. Alternative Investments are generally considered to be long-term investments and may be illiquid and not be able to be readily sold on the open market.
