Why do I need professional guidance when exploring exotic investments such as virtual currency, derivatives, and credit swaps?

There are many reasons why you need to seek professional guidance before you enter exotic investments. Many exotic investments are not transparent, meaning it is quite difficult for you to assess many key attributes of the investment, including how its underlying value is derived, what the demand may be, or even what the returns and risks may be. Exotic investments may also be quite complex, representing business models that require a great deal of expertise to understand what they do or how they create value. You should either avoid these investments entirely or seek the guidance of an expert in this investment area before deciding to invest.
