Investing in the Portfolio – Self-directed IRAs

Investing in venture with a qualified retirement account is a smart and easy strategy. We make it simple through our partnership with Infrashares, which powers our investment portal. 

Long Term Investing

Retirement savings are long term. Most investors won’t touch retirement accounts for years making IRAs the ideal vehicle for venture investing.

Available Funds

Many people have substantially more money in retirement accounts than in liquid cash. This makes diversifying your portfolio easier.

Tax Advantages

Self-Directed IRAs have the same tax advantages as traditional qualified retirement accounts.

Other Investment Mediums

Why Invest?

Independent of Markets

Venture capital has high-risk, high-returns and is unrelated to public markets. This makes it attractive to diversify portfolios.

Backed by Institutions

On average, institutional investors (like wealth managers and family offices) allocate 5-15% of their portfolio to venture.

Portfolio Diversity

No putting all your eggs in one basket. With a portfolio of five startups, investors have significant diversification.

Industry Experts

Startups are vetted by industry experts and Shadow Ventures, giving our portfolio an unfair advantage.

Invest in the Fund

Are there fees associated with investing and if so what are they?

We have a 20% management fee that covers the cost of initial startup selection including vetting and diligence to determine valuations, ongoing entity costs (filings, taxes, legal), and the hands-on work of running the overall program to promote and support each startup’s growth. Typically, fees are 2% per year over 10 years for a regular venture fund which would equate to 20%.

What are the expected returns?

Our projected returns are 2x, but as with any investment actual returns could be higher or lower. Payouts are divided into initial capital return (including the management fee), and profits which are split 80%/20% with Shadow.

For example, if the portfolio returns 2x, the payout for a $1,000 investment will be as follows:

Initial Capital Return: $1,000
Profit Split: $800
Total Return: $1,800
