God’s Word makes it quite clear that we should diversify our investments. Often that means dividing them into stocks, mutual funds and bonds and maybe precious metals. But are we missing a completely different class of investments? On today's Faith & Finance Live, host Rob West will welcome Tim Macready to fill us in about an option called private market investing. Then Rob will answer your investing questions.
