Frequently Asked Questions About Investing on CARL

Whether you're just getting started, looking for diversification strategies, or you are generally interested in finance topics – you are sure to have questions. We collected the most common questions concerning alternative investments here. If yours aren't answered, feel free to contact us.

Investing in a hedge fund means that a number of investors have pooled money to achieve specific financial goals – mostly maximum returns at minimum risk. Hedge fund managers usually carry out the task of investing the money to accomplish these goals. They also implement a wide array of hedging strategies to protect the equity invested in the funds. 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.

The world of investing is open to any individual, institution, or business that meets the specific criteria formulated by the federal government. All requirements concern an investor's available capital as well as a high enough income to be able to handle the risks involved with speculating on various financial markets. They aim at protecting the investors and their assets during short-term and long-term market fluctuations.

At CARL, we aim to lower the barriers for investing in quant hedge funds. We can offer our services to anyone who can fulfill the SEC's government-mandated requirements for accredited investors. To qualify, you need to fulfill at least one of the following requirements:

  • earned income exceeding $200,000 a year for the last two years
  • household income exceeding $300,000 per year for the previous two years for couples
  • net worth exceeding $1,000,000 exclusive of the primary residence's worth

CARL is a great alternative for IRA investors, institutional investors and individuals that are looking for multi-asset strategies. If you can be categorized in any one of these three categories, you have come to the right place to explore lucrative investment vehicles.

The hedge fund manager uses the pooled money to invest in assets. In terms of strategy, there is no general best practice or safest route as the inherent flexibility of the investment instrument allows for different approaches. Quants use various methods like computer modeling, quantitative analysis, or machine learning to identify revenue-creating investments, cutting human intuition out of the process.

Where private equity firms are restricted to specific industry and geographic sectors, hedge fund investing thrives on inherent flexibility. Hedge fund managers have the freedom to choose any given investment target and employ their preferred strategy for investing.

If you decide to use CARL as your path to alternative investments, our app is the best tool on the market. It gives you full oversight of any equity you have on your account, as well as real-time performance updates. As a third-party application, it uses live data from various sources to keep all information as up-to-date as possible.
