Alternative investments are those made in asset classes outside or stocks, bonds, and other traditional funds. This may include investments in:
- Gold stocks and commodities
- Hedge funds
- Real estate
- Off-shore investments
- Limited partnerships
Risks associated with these and other types of alternative investments are typically higher than those with traditional investment strategies. However, the dividends are often more substantial, making them a calculated risk many high-net-worth investors are willing to take.
Unfortunately, when alternative investments are not thoroughly investigated by a broker or are falsely represented, investors often suffer significant losses. The cost of purchase for many of these investments is higher than traditional stock and losses can be quite significant when they fail to sell at expected prices. If you believe you have been fraudulently led into purchasing alternative investments, the attorneys at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter can investigate your claim and help you determine if you have cause to file suit.
