StartEngine democratizes investment opportunities in assets once reserved for industry professionals and the affluent, by breaking down the barriers to entry such as marketplace access, industry insights, proper procurement, authentication, storage, and insurance for these alternative assets.
The 2018 U.S. Trust Insights on Wealth and Worth survey on wealthy households found that while baby boomers and older investors rely primarily on traditional stocks and bonds, younger investors, especially millennials, are more likely to incorporate alternative strategies into their investment portfolios.
Millennials allocate 17% to alternatives and assets other than stocks, bonds and cash. It also found that 61% of millennial investors think it’s not possible to achieve above-average returns by investing solely in stocks and bonds anymore, and are looking for alternative investments. For example, the report showed that millennials are the fastest-growing segment of art collectors, up 8% year-over-year and comprising 36% of total respondents. We believe these shifts in millennial investing tastes suggest there will be more interest in investing in alternative assets.
