As equity market volatility persists, many investors are looking beyond traditional asset classes and toward alternative investments to protect their wealth. To help you learn more about alternative investments and the role they can play in your portfolio, Dan Tolomay, CFA, chief investment officer of Trust Company of the South, sat down with one of our trusted advisors with more than two decades of experience providing exceptional service to families in the alternatives space – Mark Roberts, chief investment officer of Ironsides Asset Advisors.
