Alternative investment Portfolio – September’21

Government shutdown
Global markets were unnerved this month by a looming October government shutdown in the US, however, the shutdown was pushed out to December by a stop-gap agreement that managed to pass through Congress. A more comprehensive bill will need to be passed before December to avoid the potentially-catastrophic effects that would play out should the US government fail to meet their debt obligations. On the other side of the world fear of Evergrande’s contagion has made the market nervous.


My Alternative Investment Portfolio Performance

This month I have introduced a new platform – Hedonova. This provides everyone access to much-needed global alternative exposure which was missing for many people!

Hedonova Asset

Crypto has given impressive returns this month with Bitcoin and Ether close to the all-time high levels.

Global Alternative Hedge Fund

Platform Quarter returns (since inception)
Hedonova 32%

Hedonova had a great quarter with returns north of 30%! This was bolstered by a strong-up move in Crypto. Illiquid assets like a startup,wine,art, etc have valuation updated every 3 months hence quarter-end returns can seem higher than other months
