Abstract

“Alternative investments” generally refer to the “everything else” boxes of investments that are left out of one of the traditional boxes of stocks, bonds, and real estate purchased by “mainstream” mutual funds. Perhaps contrary to the name, many of the investments twenty-first-century advisors commonly consider “alternatives” are actually far older than the modern form of listed stocks or traded bonds. Consider the ancient history of investing in gold coins or art, private investments in shipping ventures, or Lloyd’s early insurance contracts.
