How does fractional investing in alts work on Public?

Public makes investing in Alts accessible for our investors. Members can buy membership interests, or shares, in a range of alts including art, collectibles and more. You can then manage your holdings directly through the app. For more information on how Alts investing on Public works, learn more here.

Why do investors consider alts for their portfolio?

Given that some alternative assets have reduced correlation with the stock market as opposed to other forms of investments, some investors find that they are useful vehicles to diversify their investment portfolio. Additionally, alternative assets have historically been viewed as a partial hedge against inflation. You should speak with your legal, financial and tax advisors to learn more and determine if alternative assets make sense for you.

What are the risks associated with alts?

Alternatives have a unique set of risks. You should review the applicable offering documents to determine if an investment is right for you. For more information, see this article.

Alternatives are not guaranteed, are generally less liquid than other types of securities, and are not protected by SIPC. Accordingly, you may not be able to sell interests in securities you have purchased. Please contact your attorney and tax advisors for details specific to you on investing in Securities.
