Replace Traditional Investing With Alternative Investments
In light of the bitter disappointment recently expressed by Facebook investors, I felt it would be an appropriate time to highlight the fact that the stock market has once again filled investors with false expectations, that have resulted in another stock market scandal; and allegations of an investment scam.
This time however, investors are far less likely to consider traditional investments, like real estate and the stock market; when beginning to build (or rebuild) their wealth. Furthermore, apprehensive investors will be much more conscientious of investment scams, and will chose to pursue low risk investing strategies; instead of high yield, risky endeavours. As such, nontraditional investments will become the popular alternative, for a growing number of investors.
By traditional investments, I am specifically referring to strategies that include real estate, precious metals, currencies and the stock market. On the other hand, an alternative investment includes such opportunities as shipping container investing or renewable energy, and international investors are becoming more enamored; with their established benefits and profitable rewards. Not to mention, the absence of investment scams or scandals.
