Editor's Note

Get A Sneak Peak Of The Alpha Pages

Aug 25 2014 | 11:21am ET by Deirdre Brennan

Dear Readers,

As many of you know, FINalternatives was recently acquired by the owners of Futures magazine, a firm called The Alpha Pages LLC. Today marks the soft-launch of a new sister site for both publications. As its name suggests, The Alpha Pages will cover all types of alternative investments, going far beyond the more well-known ones such as hedge funds and private equity.
 
To kick off the inaugural issue of The Alpha Pages, we are extremely pleased to present our interview with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. We recognize that his voice mirrors the nature of alternative investments: unique, non-traditional and uncorrelated to the partisan chatter that dominates today’s political environment.

Other topics we touch upon in this issue include an exotic sports IPO, Bitcoin poker, and liquid alternatives.

Please visit the new site for a sneak preview of the type of original content that we will be offering going forward.

Kind regards,

Deirdre Brennan
Editor, FINalternatives
Partner, The Alpha Pages
