Alto is the leading platform for investors of any size and level of sophistication to use their retirement accounts for investing in alternative assets, such as private companies (PE), real estate, unregistered funds, equity crowdfunding, and marketplace loans.
Alto simplifies and streamlines the process for investors to add alternative assets to their IRAs. The firm addresses the growing (yet little known) need of most investors, reliant on their IRA and 401(K) accounts for retirement, to diversify these savings in higher-return long-term alternative investment opportunities.
Alto was founded in 2016 by Eric Satz and is based in Nashville, Tennessee.
Alto delivers an easy-to-use, automated process for investing in alternatives with your IRA savings. It's mission is to democratize alternative asset investing. It gives people the access and help they need to invest in what they want using their IRA savings. Alto makes it easy for companies and funds to accept IRA investments both directly and via crowdfunding platforms.
Alto makes document collection and signature gathering a breeze for all parties. The company facilitates the investments that you want to make, whether it be in private equity, real estate or digital assets.
AltoIRA has taken the headaches, paper cuts, and general frustration out of alternative investing so you can focus entirely on the excitement of fueling the people, projects, and passions you know and trust.
