Don't wait, buy digital assets

What are alternative investments?


Investing in ‘Alternatives’ has proven to be immensely popular recently in comparison to traditional investments such as bonds, stocks & shares and unit trusts.  Due to the volatility within the marketplace many investors including new clients have favoured to buy into alternatives.  

We believe it is fundamentally important to never place all your eggs in one basket and to spread any level of risk in the portfolio accordingly (ask a broker for further information).

Another reason is that the minimum amount(s) required to open an account with Anderson Capital Management is far less than a typical high street lender or bank’s requirement making this a perfect opportunity for you to capitalise on and save costs.

ICO's & Cryptocurrency

What Is an ICO?

Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are when new cryptocurrencies are offered to investors. Like a stock floats on the stock exchange, Initial coin offerings will do the equivalent on digital asset exchanges. By getting your foot on the ladder early you can hope to make huge gains when your chosen investment matures and becomes a much sought after asset. Like with most things, the price responds accordingly to the supply and demand of the tokens available. Positioning, ROI, strong market capitalisation and healthy day to day trading volumes are key things to consider when making an acquisition. Fully qualified and experienced brokers will gladly guide you forward.

Why cryptocurrency?

Everyone has heard of Bitcoin but did you know there are countless cryptocurrencies on the market each with their own features, strengths and weaknesses. We have in-depth knowledge of a wide range of cryptocurrencies which can give you a massive head start and get a potentially valuable addition to your investment portfolio. At present there are in excess of five thousand ICO's and should this continue at this rate it is likely that existing fiat money will soon fade making headways for the arrival of new digital assets known as ''Cryptocurrencies''. Many cryptocurrencies have been built and improved through the foundations laid by Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Smart Contracts

A smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Smart contracts allow the performance of credible transactions without third parties. These transactions are trackable and irreversible. Proponents of smart contracts claim that many kinds of contractual clauses may be made partially or fully self-executing, self-enforcing, or both. The aim of smart contracts is to provide security that is superior to traditional contract law and to reduce other transaction costs associated with contracting. Various cryptocurrencies have implemented types of smart contracts.

What is Blockchain?

At it's most basic level, blockchain is literally just a chain of blocks, but not in the traditional sense of those words. When we say the words "block" and "chain" in this context, we are actually talking about digital information (the "block") stored in a public database (the "chain"). Acting as a digital ledger, it allows the sending and receiving of payments within seconds. It acts independently without central authorities eliminating any questions due to the cryptocurrency being generated through a chain of blocks in series hence the name given as ''Blockchain''. Currently the University of Oxford and The London School of Economics schedule classes for this particular subject due to the worldwide impact it is having on financial instutions.
