What are alternative assets?

Hero image

Most investor portfolios are made up of three key components: equity assets (like stocks), fixed-income assets (bonds), and cash or cash equivalents, like money market funds. Any other assets that don't fit into traditional financial investment categories like stocks, bonds, or cash investments are known as alternative investments.

Risk-adjusted performance

Rolling 90-day sharpe ratio

The Sharpe ratio measures the risk-adjusted return of an investment by subtracting the risk-free rate from the portfolio's return and dividing by its standard deviation. A higher ratio indicates better risk-adjusted performance. Ratios below 1 are considered suboptimal. 1-2 is good, and above 2 is excellent. Ratios below 0 suggest the risk-free asset outperforms the investment. It helps investors understand if the returns justify the risks taken. Here, it has been computed monthly.

Rolling 90-day correlation

The rolling 90-day correlation chart shows the connection between Hedonova's fund performance and a benchmark, typically a stock market index, across a 90-day rolling period. The correlation coefficient varies from -1 to 1, with values closer to 1 indicating a strong positive correlation, values closer to -1 indicating a strong negative correlation, and values near 0 suggesting minimal correlation.

Portfolio composition

We lease important equipment and machinery to large corporations and earn periodic income.

We offer funding to law firms for fighting commercial lawsuits, enabling us to participate in the distribution of settlement money.
