In this class we explore the third group of asset classes known as alternative investments. They are alternative because they behave differently to the assets we've covered so far, and have unique features or particular characteristics.
Investing #104 - Asset Classes: Property, Hedge Funds, Private Equity & Crypto
Property - investing in property doesn't have to be through physical purchase. Find out how millions worldwide achieve access to the property market through indirect investing
Hedge Funds - similar to mutual funds, but with exotic investment strategies, greater risk, and larger investments.
