I just got off the phone with Melana Yanos, a Staff Writer for NuWire Investor. Before she contacted me, I’d never heard of them.
I was pleasantly surprised when I visited their web site. It is jammed full of information on “the news, trends and opportunities in the alternative investment marketplace” (from their About page).
What are “alternative investments”? According to NuWire:
An alternative investment is any investment that falls outside the realm of traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The most common alternative investment is single family real estate. However, there are many other alternative investment options.
(such as Lending, Small Business, Commodities and others. See this page for more)
The site is well organized, easy to move around in and more importantly has well-written, in-depth articles covering a multitude of topics. They also run four blogs:
InvestorCentric: provides readers with timely, reliable snapshots of investor relevant news.
CommonCensus: takes a look at demographic trends and provides commentary and analysis on how they might affect investors and the economy.
The Brink Tank: created with investors in mind in order to inform readers of the most recent and interesting ideas, people, technology and resources available to investors.
Marketing2Investors: provides tips, thoughts and commentary on ways to better locate, serve and organically grow your base of investor clients.
Whether you are a real estate agent/broker, an investor, or just want to learn and understand more about real estate (and other) investment avenues like investing in pink diamonds, NuWireInvestor is a great place to stop and learn.
Five Stars. Highly recommended!
