Alternative Investments Center

The Alternative Investments Center L.L.P. is a fast growing investment and venture capital development firm located in the beautiful Ozarks region of Southwestern Missouri.                                                                    We have organized in an opportunity zone to help promote the new economic interests based in environmentally, socially and governance based investments.  We will be offering and promoting our projects as alternative investments available outside of Wall Street. 

We are primarily involved within opportunity zones throughout the United States primarily focused on repurposing of historic or architecturally significant structures while simultaneously developing green energy technologies such as agro-voltaic farm developments, solar farms buildouts, infrastructure developments & green energy improvements.

Our initial Opportunity Zone Fund will offer numerous opportunities in the Midwest. Our initial project is the ongoing rehab and buildout of  the Phillipsburg General Store & Odd Fellows Meeting Hall. We have a few other opportunity zone opportunities in the works. Originally built to house the Odd Fellows Meeting Hall in 1900 it had sadly fallen into disrepair by the late 1980s. A local woman later purchased and improved the property in the 1990s reopening the General Store portion originally located on the first floor for a brief time in the early 2000s. Her interests and time waned in the property after 10+ years. John discovered the property in 2017 recognizing the value of the building located in a opportunity zone then setup the Virtual Advisors Group to provide easy to quote & bind life insurance online followed by the Alternative Investments Center located in the Phillipsburg building to create a rural office for national investment opportunities throughout the United States.
