Other Investment Vehicles
Stocks, bonds and mutual funds are the most popular securities investments, but many more exist, usually in specialty market areas. These include:

  • Currency trading (or speculating).

  • Precious metals.

  • Venture capital arrangements.

  • Private equity offerings (stock purchases not offered on the general trading market).

  • Private debt offerings.

  • Intellectual and digital property.

  • Hedge funds.

  • International investments.

These asset classes fit best with the profiles of sophisticated investors. In many cases, they involve long-term projects and multi-year financial planning.

A number of firms specialize in offering and managing these non-traditional investment vehicles.
