A high-value network

Authentic connections and exceptional deals

Everyone knows the best deals aren’t advertised. To get into them, you have to know people. These are your people.

  • Private deals you won’t find anywhere else
  • Current members include fine art dealers, tequila dealers, sports team owners, and all sorts of cool & interesting folks.
  • Deals are supplied by members you know and trust. All members are vetted before joining.
  • We also optimize for members who can bring something unique (For example, a unique story, service, or meaningful introduction)

There's no other investment community like Altea

How it works:

  • Members are expected to bring one top-tier deal to the community each year (it can be in any market you know well)
  • Anyone from the community can sponsor a deal.
  • Deal Desk is our comprehensive database of live deals.
  • For the very best deals, we’ll invest together as a community through our SPVs

  • We have allocations to a New Zealand National Rugby League Team, Agave Farmland, and a Pre-IPO Shares Index
