Alternative Investment Portfolio -January 2022

Market Crash 2022

The start of 2022 has turned out to be a rough ride for the global equity and cryptocurrency market. Somehow having a decent chunk of my investment in other alternatives and non-market-linked products has been a savior for me. Else I would have also got sleepless nights like a lot of other investors!

People who started investing late in equity and crypto markets would have got their experience of volatility. People should not get spooked by it. Another learning is for the blind IPO investments people were chasing. Most of the new-age Tech IPO are below the listing price.

  1. Dear Rohan,

    What is your opinion of Orowealth Green Investing option that claims to invest in Clean
    and Tax-free assets. I could not find any historical performance data on this.

  2. Hi Rohan,
    I’ve been following you since 2020, you rock dude, on finding such platforms, no one in India has vast alt-inv knowledge currently.
    My question is,
    I’ve been considering investing in Faircent and I’ve been assured of 12% return, is it safe to invest in Faircent, and what might be their criteria on capital distribution?
    If not, is Lendbox per annum or other ‘Alt inv’ safe enough?
    What happened about your WazirX matter and did you receive your capital back?

    • Hi Zac,
      I only advise Faircent freedom products for investment. It’s a pooled loan product. Personal loans are a big no based on my experience.
      Use Lendbox and Cashkumar to invest in pooled loans(like per annum or settlement finance, elastic run). Liquiloans is also a good option for getting a higher yield than your bank account with instant liquidity.
      I will suggest splitting capital, this gives less tail risk if some corporate governance issue crop up.

      Wazirx money is still stuck, unfortunately!

  3. Hey Rohan – I’ve been following randomdimes for the past 3 months and I really appreciate you for providing insights on all Alternative Investments. Great work and amazing!.
