Synopsis

Today, investors are desperate for new options. Stocks have proved stagnant after fifteen years of crazy volatility. The trusty real estate market bottomed out. Bank CDs offer rates that start with a decimal point. For traditional investing options it's either gamble dangerously, or make nothing at all. How can investors gain bigger returns for much lower risks? The answer, as long-time investment strategist Bob Rice explains, is alternative investing. Instead of narrow stock and bond portfolios, Rice advises clients to own an array of real assets, hedged strategies, venture funds, emerging market companies, natural resources and other previously exotic investments. But to most investors, and even most financial advisors, this new alternative world is a mystery. How do these strategies work? How do they relate to a traditional portfolio? How does one pick the right products? Rice fully understands this world and explains it step by step, providing a clear and simple, yet very sophisticated, system for investing wisely and well. In addition he explains how to generate inflation-protected income, build risk-adjusted profits, and safely transfer excess wealth to later generations.
