What role should hard assets play in a portfolio?
CHICAGO (PRWEB) December 08, 2017
The PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0 Financial Poise webinar series is intended for the investor who has an intermediate level of investing experience and knowledge. It assumes an understanding of the difference between stocks and bonds, and the difference between investing in publicly traded stock and investing in a mutual fund that, in turn, invests in publicly traded stocks. It further assumes that there are a good many things you do not know but which you are quite capable of picking up quickly. The series begins with fundamentals, such as the concepts of alpha and beta and how to approach reading financial statements and financial journalism. The series then turns to look closely at certain alternative investment objects of fascination: investment in VC/PE/HF (private equity, venture capital, and hedge funds) and investment in "hard" assets like real estate.
The fourth and final episode of the PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0 webinar series is Alternative Assets Part 2: Investing in Real Estate and Other “Hard” Assets, airing on December 12th at 11am CST (REGISTER HERE), and features host Chris Cahill of Lowis & Gellen LLP. He is joined by Curtis Anderson of Alpha Fiduciary, Jordan Fishfeld of CFX Markets, AdaPia d’Errico of AlphaFlow, and Tracy Treger of Syndicated Equities to discuss the role that "hard" assets can play in a portfolio, as well as the value of investing in derivatives of hard assets.
It is said that real estate and gold are "hard" assets that can insure against inflation or instability, and which do spectacularly well sometimes. But, over time? What role should hard assets play in a portfolio? How is investing in hard assets better or worse than investing in derivatives of hard assets, like futures contracts on gold or platinum?
