The Ultimate Guide to Tokenized Alternative Investments for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals

Learn about the advantages of tokenization and how platforms like Securitize are changing the game for alternative investments

Mar 20, 2023

If you're an ultra high net worth individual, you know that finding high-yielding investments with low fees can be a challenge. That's where alternative investments come in. By investing in assets beyond traditional stocks and bonds, you can potentially earn higher returns while diversifying your portfolio.

But what if there was a way to make alternative investments even better? That's where tokenization comes in. By digitizing assets like private credit and private equity, tokenization enables investors to access these assets more easily and efficiently. In this guide, we'll explore the features and benefits of tokenized alternative investments and how they can benefit ultra high net worth individuals.

What Are Tokenized Alternative Investments?

Tokenized alternative investments are digital representations of assets that are typically illiquid or difficult to access. These assets include private credit, private equity, real estate, and more. By using blockchain technology, tokenization enables these assets to be divided into smaller units and traded more efficiently.

For example, imagine a private equity fund that requires a minimum investment of $1 million. With tokenization, that fund can be divided into tokens worth as little as $100, allowing a larger pool of investors to access the investment.

Benefits of Tokenized Alternative Investments for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals

Diversification: By investing in a range of alternative assets, ultra high net worth individuals can diversify their portfolios and potentially reduce risk.

Access to high-yielding investments: Private credit and private equity have historically delivered higher returns than traditional investments like stocks and bonds. For example, Hamilton Lane has delivered over 8% on their private credit fund historically.

Lower fees: Traditional alternative investments often come with high fees, but tokenized alternative investments can be more cost-efficient due to their digitized nature.

Increased liquidity: Tokenization enables alternative assets to be traded more efficiently, potentially increasing liquidity and making it easier to access capital.

How Tokenization Works

Tokenization works by creating digital tokens that represent ownership in an asset. These tokens are stored on a blockchain, which enables secure, transparent trading.

For example, let's say you want to invest in a private credit fund. By purchasing tokens that represent ownership in the fund, you can access the investment with a lower minimum investment and potentially lower fees.

Platforms like Securitize enable tokenization of alternative assets, making it easier for investors to access these investments.

The Future of Tokenized Alternative Investments

As the use of blockchain technology and tokenization continues to grow, we can expect to see more alternative assets being tokenized. This could include assets like art, collectibles, and more.

In addition, the use of different blockchains is also growing, with platforms like Polygon, Avalanche, and Algorand gaining popularity in the tokenization space.

The Bottom Line

Tokenized alternative investments offer a range of benefits for ultra high net worth individuals, including diversification, access to high-yielding investments, lower fees, and increased liquidity. By leveraging the power of blockchain technology, these investments are becoming more accessible and efficient.
