Alternative investments can be a great compliment to an investment portfolio, they can help with diversification, and provide a good income stream. However it is important to understand the value as well as the risks that are associated with alternative investments. An alternative investment is an investment vehicle that does not fall in the same categories as traditional investments. When we think about traditional investing, many people will consider stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc.
Alternatives differ, some of the investments that fall under this category are private equity, Real Estate, Hedge Funds, commodities, and tangible assets.
Whether or not alternatives are right for your specific situation is a conversation to have with a financial advisor. Depending on your risk tolerance, liquidity and many other factors, they may or may not be an addition to your portfolio that you should make.
