Alternative Investments

Our partners

Our Passion Alternative Investment offerings and research started out of a realization that today’s financial products are increasingly technical, complicated, and most of all further removed from true physical value. Also, investors and market participants have been highlighting the importance of diversification and uncorrelated returns from their traditional portfolios of Bonds, Equities, and Traditional Funds Passion alternative investments have proven a truly unique and innovative asset class that not only can provide risk adjusted return, but also high levels of multi-generational enjoyment.

To provide best in class luxury and premium quality passion assets one needs access to global suppliers, distributors, experts, collectors, insurers, vaults, auction houses, and private buyers. This laundry list of support takes many years to form trust and also many years to understand. Here at Castle Alternatives we have created an internal team of experts augmented by a wide international network of partners to create a synergistic platform across all passion interests and stages of service a truly end-to-end solution.
