Upcide provides opportunities in a plethora of assets. Some of the top asset classes you can invest on the platform are:
- Real Estate
- Social Impact assets like Renewable Energy and Agriculture technology
- Collectibles like Wine, Art and Whisky
- Leasing finance
As it is evident the platform provides few assets which are also available on other platforms but also provide some unique assets.
Is Upcide Safe ?
All the transactions on the platform will be done through legally sound mechanisms like LLP structure etc hence there would be no possibility of fund diversion.
The risk of investment in assets will be there, which is true for all platforms. Hence it is important that we do our due diligence before investing in any deal.
