Bridging the Gap in Alternative Investing
LUCA streamlines complex investment process and delivers world-class alternative investment opportunities to a wider range of investors
What are alternative investments?
Investments into assets that are not categorized as "traditional” assets such as bonds and stocks
Alternative investments and funds, namely hedge funds, private equity, private debt, commodities, real estate, infrastructure such as roads and railroads, have different correlation of returns from traditional market-linked investments such as bonds and stocks. Funds that invest in less liquid assets are referred to as “private market” funds.
Alternative Investment is a smart choice for your long-term wealth creation
Your traditional investment portfolio correlates constantly with daily market volatility. Factors such as interest rate, economic cycle, geopolitics, and pandemic keep you awake at night. Alternative investment, less correlated to the markets, offers stable long-term growth in your portfolio.
Challenges of Alternative Investments
and LUCA's solutions
Sizeable minimum investment amount
Typical minimum investment amount in a private equity fund ranges from 5 to 10 million dollars. Given the need to diversify portfolio, investors in this asset class need to have hundreds of millions of dollars. This puts a high entry bar to alternative assets for investors.
Through its digital platform, LUCA will enable a lower minimum investment amount and provide investment opportunities to a wider range of investors.
Limited information and transparency
Limited information is available when it comes to alternative funds. Terms and conditions of investment funds and industry terminologies often alienate investors with less experience in the asset class.
LUCA sources quality domestic and international alternative funds and introduces them in a way that is easy for non-institutional investors to understand. LUCA will also provide education sessions for investors and sales staff, to facilitate understanding of investment strategies, markets, funds, and latest news.
Investment process in alternative funds is complex, including understanding sizable legal documents to sign, KYC, fund application, capital calls, and investment reporting.
LUCA provides a one-stop completion platform that improves the efficiency of this otherwise complicated investment process.
For a long time, investors who have access to alternative funds and investments have been severely limited. Consisting of finance industry veterans with global experience, the founding members of LUCA have stood up to enhance efficiency of alternative investments by unlocking opportunities to a bigger audience.
