About Denis Shapiro:
After graduating with a BBA and MBA from Baruch College in New York City, Denis Shapiro began working for the U.S. Government in a career that he proudly built for over a decade. In his various roles with the government, Denis served as a liaison to the public and various state agencies and gained a unique view of the importance of portfolio allocation and management.
Denis began investing in real estate in 2012 when the market was just beginning to recover from the global financial crisis. He went on to build a cash-flowing portfolio that includes many alternative assets, such as note and ATM funds, mobile home parks, life insurance policies, tech start-ups, industrial property, short-term rentals, and more. He also co-founded an investment club for accredited investors in 2019. Leveraging these successes and the lessons learned throughout his career, Denis launched SIH Capital Group, an alternative investment fund that provides accredited investors with a simplified strategy to invest for passive income.
Denis’ book, The Alternative Investment Almanac: Expert Insights on Building Personal Wealth in Non-Traditional Ways, is based on his personal experiences, supplemented by interviews with some of the best alternative asset investors in the business today.
