Historically, hedge funds have been a playground for the super-wealthy, requiring extensive research and minimum investments ranging from $100,000 to millions of dollars. CARL eliminates those barriers, allowing accredited investors to enter the game with a minimum investment of just $20,000. Find alternative investment strategies that are perfect for you, and start diversifying your portfolio today!
Hedge funds offer you more flexibility, fewer regulations, and greater targeted returns compared to mutual funds, equity funds, bonds, stocks, or any other old-fashioned investment vehicle. This makes them particularly profitable for experienced and inexperienced investors who don't invest in volatile markets when the returns might be significantly higher than those generated by other types of investments. In addition, the quantitative funds CARL specializes in are able to utilize more aggressive investing strategies since they are able to react quickly to market changes and general volatility.
CARL combines the benefits of hedge funds with quantitative investment strategies. Quants replace the human intuition factor with advanced computer algorithms and machine learning. By going full fintech, CARL prevents potentially egregious human errors, made by hedge fund managers, from ruining your hedge fund strategies. Avoid bad calls – e.g., over- or under-evaluating a particular asset – and reliably identify valuable assets for your portfolio.

At CARL, we are democratizing this process to allow accredited investors to take the reins, keep full control over their assets, and generate significant returns over time.
