Why Purchase Non-Traditional Assets


Most Americans have an enormous amount of financial exposure to the financial markets. In fact, over 90% of retirement assets are invested in the financial markets. Investing in non-traditional assets, such as real estate, offers a form of investment diversification from the equity markets. Typically, the more diversified your portfolio, your assets are less likely to move in the same direction. However, diversification does not assure profit or protect against loss.

Invest in Something You Understand

Many Americans became frustrated with the equity markets after the 2008 financial crisis. Thankfully, we have seen the financial markets rebound since then. Nevertheless, many Americans are still somewhat shell-shocked from the market swings. They are not 100% sure what goes on in Wall Street and how it all works.

Real estate, for comparison, is often a more comfortable investment for the lower and middle classes because they grew up exposed to it. Whereas the upper class are more familiar with Wall Street and other securities.

Inflation Protection

Rising food and energy prices, along with high federal debt levels and low interest rates, have recently fueled new inflationary fears. As a result, some investors may look for ways to protect their portfolios from the ravages of inflation.
