In recent years, alternative investments, also known as “alts”, have become increasingly popular among investors seeking higher returns and portfolio diversification. In fact, they’re expected to grow between 18-24% by 2025. As a qualified purchaser or family office, you are likely familiar with the benefits of alts, but may not be aware of secondary funds—a type of investment that leverages the power of tokenization to provide access to private equity and private credit investments, while potentially minimizing fees. In this post, we will explore the features and benefits of secondary funds and how they can help you achieve your investment goals. Investment risks do apply.
What are secondary funds?
Secondary funds are investment vehicles that allow investors to access real world assets, such as private equity and private credit, through tokenization. Tokenization is a process that converts assets into digital tokens, which can be easily traded on blockchain-based platforms. This provides investors with the opportunity to make smaller investments, with the potential for greater liquidity, while still benefiting from the potential returns of private investments.
Benefits of secondary funds:
To illustrate the potential impact of secondary funds, consider the potential case of a family office that invests in a secondary fund managed by Hamilton Lane. By investing in a diversified portfolio of private equity and credit investments through tokenization, the family office can potentially generate higher returns than traditional investments, while also potentially reducing fees and overall portfolio risk. This may help the family office achieve its long-term investment goals, such as funding education for future generations or supporting charitable causes. Note that investment goals may vary, and this information is provided for illustrative purposes only and should not be construed as a recommendation to purchase securities or indicative of future results.
