Blame it on continuing supply chain problems. Blame it on lingering COVID concerns. Blame it all the above. Blame it on Rio was, by the way, quite a good movie. But we digress. Given what the market is doing, now’s a good time to consider alternative assets. Start with the basics by reading Alternative Assets and the “Average” Accredited Investor Installment #1.
Crowdfunding from the Investor's Perspective. Diversifying your portfolio is one of the most effective ways to be a mindful investor. Crowdfunding certainly offers an array of different opportunities, but there are things to be aware of navigating this new world of investments. In fact, Financial Poise recommends staying away from crowdfunding. But knowledge is power and so this webinar gives an overview of this still raily new regulatory regime, the requirements to invest, and the on-boarding process one should expect. The professionals on this webinar also explain how to access and select investments. This is a guide, rather than a step-by-step instruction manual for any specific deal selection, on how to handle the basic selection criteria available and the method to go about investing (and, of course, to explain mistakes you can avoid) if you choose to do so.
