With investors having to work a bit harder to find potentially profitable growth opportunities for their money as markets change and political factors such as Brexit hit certain industries, those that diversify their portfolio with alternative investments can enter exciting new fast-paced growth markets that work for them, reflect their passions and complement their overall lifestyle.
The alternative investments market has seen consistently strong levels of growth for years, with global assets in alternatives set to grow to $18.1 trillion by 2020 according to a study by PwC.
There are a huge number of opportunities for investors to consider putting their money toward in the alternative investments market. Perform the right research and partner with an experienced consultancy and it’s possible to uncover lower-risk opportunities with potentially higher returns than those in mainstream industries.
Some of those alternatives opportunities can also be found in the property sector.
Alternative investments in the property sector
There’s a large consensus that the UK housing market has seen better days. Issues such as a dramatic rise in population and a lack of housing has created something of a crisis across the nation, with parties across the political spectrum agreeing that something has to be done urgently to increase the rate of new builds.
Progress is well underway. Builders registered that they planned to build 37,936 homes during the third quarter of 2017, a rise of 9% when compared against the same period last year and the highest third-quarter total since 2007 according to Britain’s National House-Building Council.
It’s the greatest number of homes set to be built in a decade; when adding commercial builds into the equation too, there are a lot of alternative investments and opportunities in property for people to consider putting their money toward.
Property is by far and away one of the favourite mainstream staple investments for British investors, so how could it be classed as an alternative opportunity? Simple; there are a large range of alternative projects on the market today that investors can consider that could potentially be more secure than mainstream property projects and more suited to their lifestyle.
Diversify your portfolio with alternative investments
The trouble a lot of investors have with property though is that not everybody is suited to being a landlord. With experts expecting yet another increase in stamp duty rates to help ease the financial burden on millennials and first-time buyers who are looking for homes, investors can be put off purchasing a second home with the view to taking on paying tenants.
An alternative way of investing can help investors to become part of the property industry without having to worry about the financial burdens of stamp duty, dealing with problem tenants, going through complicated compliance measures and much more besides.
Investing in bond opportunities within the alternative property sector can help investors to back unique projects as well as diversify their portfolios for added security. With various fixed return opportunities available too, investors can potentially grow their savings in ways to supplement their income, ladder their returns, back projects in line with their ethics and more through alternative property.
