Everything Else

Since the beginning, we’ve been dedicated to analyzing unique investment ideas. And boy, there is simply a ton of interesting stuff to collect, invest, and put your money into.

We take alts very seriously, but we also like to have some fun. While the offbeat stuff doesn’t necessarily give the best returns (or even hold its value particularly well) it’s fascinating to learn more about the world of options out there.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

Alts is the only email newsletter I've read from start to finish from day one. The effort that Stefan & Wyatt provide is the next-level analysis you've been waiting for. They break down each asset in detail, metric by metric, and serve it up in a brief email with graphics and links.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.

Alts brings me unique investment opportunities and insights that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. For me, it’s a simple and enjoyable way to stay informed on financial topics that are way outside of the mainstream news sources.
