Brad Olinger and his team of architects, designers and contractors at Sterling Homes are known for blending style and function while focusing on cost and environmental efficiency.

Are Private Investments Appropriate For You?

The capital markets have been the most accessible means of generating wealth for savers throughout the last 100-plus years. Traditional equity and bond markets have afforded anyone with the ability to set aside money for the intermediate- and/or long-term the opportunity to generate returns in excess of whatever has been readily available to them via traditional banking products (i.e. savings accounts and CDs). These markets have permitted individuals to accumulate the trillions of dollars that currently reside within 401(k)s and IRAs. But with equity markets near an all-time high and long-term interest rates still historically low (and for other reasons alluded to below), investors are clamoring for returns that might not realistically be available to them throughout the next 10 years by way of a well diversified equity and/or bond portfolio. For many investors, private investments are now an option and, in many cases, part of the solution.
