Quantbase thinks of high risk as investing in assets/strategies that have a potential for very high return but require taking on and stomaching very high volatility as well. Quantbase is the first Robo-advisor, accessible through a web app (and soon mobile) that lets you do exactly that - fully liquid, easily investable portfolios across asset classes - they've got portfolios like the Crypto 30, NFT index, leveraged Algo-trading fund, hedge fund tracker, and even a Nancy Pelosi tracker.
On their end, they handle complex back-end integrations with brokerages that actually host and handle trading of different assets/instruments. On your end, you create one account with Quantbase, deposit as low as $50 into your Quantbase account, and then buy/sell into any of the (soon) hundreds of portfolios we offer.
How you make money
All Quantbases portfolios look and act the same as ETFs. You can track them by looking at the data on their site (soon to be Morningstar-certified), and can buy/sell into portfolios at any point (no lock-up periods).
How Quantbase makes money
The only way Quantbase makes money is through their AUM fee, which is $5/month for portfolios that have below $6,000 AUM, and 0.078% fee per month otherwise (0.94% annually).
Is it safe?
Quantbase is SEC-registered (https://adviserinfo.sec.gov/firm/summary/315414) which means they took almost 6 months to undergo a number of knowledge and legal checks, and have to comply with a large set of suitability measurements as fiduciaries. Their team is now 4 people (including investment bankers, quant traders, and senior engineers from Google and fintech/banking), with 4,000 users.
Quantbase is pretty diverse across asset classes and even has portfolios for commodities (soon) and bonds. The biggest risk with an offering like theirs (high return potential + high volatility) is for a short investment horizon. If your horizon is <6 months, for example, and you invest in a portfolio that drops 60% in 4 months (but ends up returning 200% from there over the next 3 years), Quantbase may not be what you're looking for.
