Hedonova Review: A Fund for all Alternative Investments

Alan Angeloni
Co-Founder & CEO

In the past, alternative investment classes such as Startups & Art investing were historically reserved for accredited investors. Over recent years a variety of platforms have been launched to give investors exposure to these asset classes.

One firm particularly gives investors the ability to get exposure to over 12 asset classes in a single fund with a minimum investment of $5000 is essentially a mutual fund for alts! They have a unique allocation of assets that yield investors both capital gains & income. Select investments such as P2P lending & financing produce regular income for investors. While exposure to crypto, wine, art & startups yields investors' capital gains!

One thing to take into account is that majority of these assets are illiquid. These assets can take years to sell in order to see a return. Hedonova counters this by also investing in liquid assets like cryptocurrency and stocks.

Hedonova is a young firm founded in 2020. They have an exceptional track record thus far producing 53.2% CAGR with extraordinary alpha over the S&P 500 of 15.4%.
