An Introduction to Unlisted Investments


Traditionally, Australians have a tendency to invest in cash, in property and in the ASX. That’s not a bad mix, but it’s not the limit of our opportunities in a sophisticated, developed economy. Unlisted and alternative investments are a different class of assets with different advantages, disadvantages and uses in a portfolio. This project is about uncovering what some of those opportunities are, how they work and what you need to know as an investor before making a decision.

Unlisted investments differ from listed investments in a three main ways: regulation, liquidity and different behaviours compared to listed investments. While these differences can be substantial, the same basic rules for investing apply to both listed and unlisted products.
