Investing Off The Grid

18th March 2012

Christine Benz asked Morningstar.com readers whether they had ventured into "off the grid" investment types--nonpublic real estate, private equity investments, or collectibles, for example. 
Readers shared a panoply of responses--citing everything from income-producing real estate to vintage posters--with a few noting that such investments form a sizable share of their portfolios.
One enthusiastic collector of fine-art posters commented: "Original vintage advertising posters are perhaps one of the few investments in fine art still accessible to upper-middle class--or even budget-minded collectors. My favorites for beauty and appreciation--and for covering one's living room walls--include turn-of-the century France and Belle Epoque Paris, also old World War I bond posters and bicycle advertisements. For a 'mere pennies budget,' some of the recent British rail travel posters are exceptionally nice and still very cheap. Also still inexpensive are Soviet Union propaganda posters. I feel both might appreciate well over the years."
