Why Alto?

Our mission is to democratize IRA investing and give you the tools and flexibility to invest in what you want.

We created Alto because everyone should be able to access their retirement savings to make alternative investments like the world’s most sophisticated investors

Investors representing all risk profiles and backgrounds should have the opportunity to evaluate and capitalize on alternative investment strategies. It’s our job to help you do just that.

   Educating Investors

Most people either don’t know that they can access their retirement savings for alternative investment purposes or they have lots of questions about how to do so. We’re here to answer your questions and ease the learning process.

   Simplifying and Streamlining

The Self-Directed IRA investment industry is burdened by people and paper. There are too many documents and signatures, too many parties involved, and there’s too much legalese to review; it’s a hassle. Our team has built a software solution to distill the process to its simplest form to save you time and frustration.

   Cutting Costs

The processes that govern IRA and 401(k) investment have barely changed since the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974. With modern technologies and process automation, Alto does away with exorbitant administrative fees so that alternative asset investing makes more sense.

We’re democratizing alternative asset investment so that everyone can invest in what they want.

Did you know ...

... 90% of savings in the United States – roughly $15,000,000,000,000 (that’s $15 trillion!) – is socked away in tax-advantage accounts. That’s the equivalent of filling 15 football fields with $100 bills stacked 6 feet high. If more people knew they could access these funds, we’d see a flood of new ideas and projects take flight. Alto wants to make that possibility available to investors of all profiles.
