Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? We are here to help.
What is 99rises?
99rises is a managed investment platform that provides low-cost, low-minimums access to hedge fund strategies (“alts”) and impact investing in separately managed customer accounts. As investment advisers, we are a fiduciary, which means we act in your interests ahead of our own. We will ask you a bit about yourself, your investment goals and set you up for success.
What are “alts”?
“Alts” or alternative investment strategies offer investors a choice over traditional investment strategies that generally allocate capital on a “buy and hold” basis (i.e. “long only funds”) to stocks, bonds, and cash. “Alts” seek to create positive performance in all market conditions over a given investment horizon. As such, often performance is not measured versus a broad market index, or a benchmark, but in absolute terms along with other factors e.g. volatility.`
How liquid is my capital?
It’s your money in a separately managed account and you can have access to it within 3-5 business days. At 99rises, we leverage technology to eliminate barriers to most people that may have had reason in the past including “locking up” your capital.
How often can I update my portfolio of blocks?
You can change your information as frequently as you like. However, after your initial investment, any changes to portfolio allocations will be adjusted on the next rebalance (at least monthly).
How secure is my account?
Your assets are held at our custodian, Apex Clearing, one of the premier custodians across the brokerage technology industry. We protect your personal data and financial information using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and 256-bit encryption technology.
How do you keep my money safe?
Our brokerage firm, Tradier is a member of FINRA, the securities industry self-regulatory body. Your assets are held at our custodian Apex Clearing. Each is insured by the SPIC, premier insurer of the brokerage industry, up to $500,000 per account, of which $250,000 can be applied to cash balances. This can protect against losses of account assets in the event that 99rises or Tradier liquidates. What you should remember is that this does not protect against market changes or risks in your account. The risks inherent in investing are tradeoffs you make to pursue investment returns. We design our blocks to aim for the highest projected returns given the associated risk level.
How do you decide what block is right for me?
Using guided interviews, our rules-based platform computes a risk score and establishes an investment profile that can drive the selection of the initial block choices for the customer. At this stage, we are focused on picking your initial long-short block which will provide a “safety prioritized” core to your portfolio. What we mean by this is a block that is broad in its composition and focused on managing volatility as current markets make clear can be quite harmful to passive strategies. We will expand blocks over time and provide tools for evaluating the best choices based on your goals, values, and interests.
What are my risks?
As with most investments, positive returns are not guaranteed and you may lose some or all of the money you have invested. Alternative strategies are also exposed to the same asset class and market liquidity issues as other investments. In addition, although hedging is intended to limit or reduce investment risk, it may not achieve that effect. In some cases, hedging may even increase losses. Lastly, there are risks that will not or cannot be hedged.
