Why Open Alts?
Access to alternative investments has traditionally been limited to institutional investors and a small sect of high-net-worth accredited investors. Recent regulatory changes have opened up the benefits of investing in alternative vehicles – real estate, private equity, hedge funds and infrastructure investments – but they are still subject to years of capital lock-up periods and illiquidity.
Desirable for an institution, but not suitable for the vast majority of investors.
Advances in technology and an increased demand from investors of all types has created a need in the market for a network able to connect the benefits of alternatives to a global landscape of investors, without the high barriers to entry and lack of control over their investments. Through the RealBlocks network, alternative fund managers can now connect their product with investors around the world through financial intermediaries with Open Alts.
