This ain’t your grandpa’s fund.

We are a ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind alternative investment community.
With the ALTS 1 fund, you’ll stay one step ahead of the market and achieve returns traditional funds can only dream of. 

Uncorrelated to equity markets

An opportunity to invest in a broad basket of alternatives uncorrelated to public equities. We choose assets specifically designed to diversify your portfolio and protect against inflation.

Backed by our superior research and analysis

Since February 2021, we’ve analyzed 800+ deals across fractional platforms, and made 111 buy recommendations. Of those, we’ve exited 70, with an average ROI of 82%. 

Available to US and international investors

This is a groundbreaking, actively-managed Reg D Fund for investors anywhere in the world. If you are located in the US, you must be accredited, and will be required to show proof.

What do we invest in?

Meticulously-chosen and refined, the Alts fund is packed with unique alternative investments across 10 asset classes.

Collectables and Culture

Historic returns average 24%

35%

Nostalgia is real. That’s why investors and collectors alike are flooding into these assets. From sports cards to vinyl, an entire generation wants to get involved. Our proprietary methodology ensures that we see trends develop before anyone else.

Crypto and NFTs

Historic returns average 112%

20%

Love them or hate them, there’s no denying that crypto and NFTs can be phenomenally profitable. Our unique strategy makes the most of staking, liquidity pools, and play-to-earn dynamics across a mixed portfolio of blue-chip and up-and-coming assets.

Fine Artwork

Historic returns average 14%

5%

Art has always been a strong store of wealth, and it’s historically outpaced most equity markets. Our blended approach, investing in both Masters and Contempories, generates alpha returns while providing portfolio stability.

Music Rights

Historic returns average 12%

5%

One of the most exciting and underrated alternative asset classes out there, music rights yield immediate and consistent cashflow. We work with industry experts to make the best, most portfolio-stabilising investments.

Specialty Real Estate

Historic returns average 8%

5%

There’s an entire world of real estate beyond multi-family homes and office buildings, and we’re here for it. We’ll take positions on assets such as holiday homes, farmland, and alternative dwelling units.

Wine and Whisky

Historic returns average 30%

5%

Both wine and spirits made record returns over the last two years and whisky consumption will outpace vodka for the first time in 2022. We’re digging deep to find the next Karuizawa and unearth the most daring Bordeaux.

Sneakers

Historic returns average 60%

3%

Die-hard sneakerheads generate returns well above equity markets, and we’re working with the best. The ultimate diminishing asset, sneakers are only deadstock for so long.

Fund offering and strategy

Actively-managed, low fees

Actively managed funds are the best way to address the volatility, immaturity, and rapidly-changing nature of alternative assets.

Our portfolio team takes a long-term approach, while also taking advantage of the day-to-day inefficiencies in the market.

Management fees start at just 1% and go down from there.

A data-driven approach

In fragmented markets, returns follow data and analysis, and we have the best data and strongest analysts.

And while all these markets are available to retail investors, the vast majority of returns accrue to the top 1% of assets.

A solid track record

Since February 2021, our investments through alternative assest trading platforms have yielded an average ROI of 82% compared to the platforms’ overall ROI of 13%.

Not to mention that returns across this basket of asset classes historically beat benchmarks like the S&P 500.

We’re targeting 40% per year.
 
$20k. But if that’s beyond your reach, get in touch and we’ll see if we can accommodate you.
 
Fees and perks vary based on the initial investment amount, but given this is our very first fund, we have a special Debut Investor offer. Every investor in ALTS1 will be offered a lifetime 1% management fee, not just for this fund but for all future funds. Get in touch and we can walk you through it.
We have a team of 6 analysts and researchers, covering the major asset classes in the fund. For smaller, more niche classes (e.g. sneakers and music rights), we will be working with trusted experts from the industry. Our fund team is lead by Wyatt Cavalier, Co-founder and CIO of Alts.co. Get in touch and we’ll send over his bio.
The fund has a 10 year duration, and all funds will be returned at the exit. If you’d like liquidity before that, we anticipate allowing the fund shares to trade on a secondary market in 2023, after the one-year legal lockup period and pending regulatory approval.

The regulations for accredited investors vary from one jurisdiction to the other and are often defined by a local market regulator or a competent authority. 

In the U.S, to be an accredited investor, a person must have an annual income exceeding $200,000 ($300,000 for joint income) for the last two years with the expectation of earning the same or a higher income in the current year. An individual must have earned income above the thresholds either alone or with a spouse over the last two years. The income test cannot be satisfied by showing one year of an individual’s income and the next two years of joint income with a spouse.

A person is also considered an accredited investor if they have a net worth exceeding $1 million, either individually or jointly with their spouse. 

Any accredited investor, anywhere in the world. As this is a Reg D fund, investment spaces are limited to 2,000 individuals.
The fee is 1%, annually payable 0.25% per quarter.

When the fund sells assets, the team will reinvest proceeds into other assets and likely begin returning funds to investors in years 8-10 as we begin to wind down the fund; once we begin distributions to the investor pool, the investors would be made whole on their initial investment before the 20% carry is calculated. The only time this would be done earlier is if the investor is selling their whole position (or a portion) after the one-year lockup. 

After 12 months. We anticipate allowing the fund shares to trade on a secondary market in 2023, after the one-year legal lockup period and pending regulatory approval.

Collectables and cultural items will be stored with vaulting services such as Goldin or PWCC. We’ll also look at safety deposit box storage. Crypto will be held in custodial accounts and Metamask wallets. NFT assets will be held in a cold hardware wallet. Art will be stored in freeports, or we’ll work with art funds that maintain artworks. Wine and spirits will be stored in freeports, and rare books/manuscripts will be held in safety deposit box storage.

For cultural items, wine and spirits and rare books, we will use broker-obtained insurance policies. Real Estate insurance will be maintained by the property owner, adhering to all legal and regulatory approval. Art will be bought with funds that insure the pieces.
