The world’s wealthiest have invested in alternative assets for centuries. Today, as a result of new services and technology emerging, retail investors finally have a chance to get in on the action and invest in anything from startups to fine wine. However, with so many investment opportunities on the horizon, the world of alternative investments can be hard to navigate. In this post we will feature some of our favourite resources, which will help guide you along your alternative investment journey.
The Alternative Assets Club is perfect for anyone looking for new investment ideas. The blog is filled with in-depth articles on different alternative asset classes.

The articles will help you assess whether an investment opportunity is suitable for you, and will give you some insight into how to get access to the asset class. Given the recent interest in NFTs, they also cover the hottest drops and latest NFT news.
Instead of deep-dives into specific asset classes, The Alt Goes Mainstream blog is more focused on wider trends in the alternative investment space.
