Real Asset Highlights


 

ASymmetric upside potential

We are poised to structure an investment that will drive and provide the highest convexity, so that a high reward can be earned for every unit of risk taken. We see risk in terms of permanent loss of capital, rather than in terms of volatility. We have a conviction that niche growth markets like avocado are viable and superior investment opportunities in a world of limited resources.

Inflation Hedge properties

Preservation of capital is paramount to investing. Real assets provide adequate protection, especially in a world that has been distorted by the printing press of central banks across the world.

Diversifying Source of Return

In terms of investing, there is nothing like free lunch. We provide true diversification from systematic risks. The naive geographical diversification however is not effective when needed the most i.e. when volatility rises and correlations increase.

Superior Cash flows

Cash flows provide downside protection and are relatively a more stable way of determining expected returns.

WHY aSYMMETRICA

We provide access to exclusive investments 

Real assets such as forests, farms, or avocado orchids have been excellent provider of superior returns over time. However, so far, this asset class has only been made available to a few institutional investors like big university endowments, hedge and pension funds.

Our USP is to provide the following characteristics to real assets:

Accessibility

Small institutions used to find it difficult to access investments in real assets like avocado orchards in Mexico. We come in here and enable exposure to this asset class, ideally by structuring investments for you to become a co-investor with an expert in a niche market.

Lower Minimums

Alternative investments have higher minimum investments than traditional assets. Most times, smaller institutions cannot afford to invest in these types of assets but with distribution ledger technology, we are able to provide lower minimums.

 liquidity

Alternative investments like real assets are illiquid investments. There is no exchange for avocado orchards like for stocks. That is, only investors with a very long time horizons were able to invest in real assets in the past. We therefore seek to improve liquidity by providing a market.

Lower Costs

Naturally, the costs of acquiring and managing real assets are high. As such, smaller institutions cannot afford in-house expertise. We provide a fair reduction in these costs by using economies of scale.
