How CARL Inc. makes money
CARL creates the hedge fund marketplace, where funds and investors can get access and so much more. For this they charge a 2% annual management fee, charged in part each month. Their funds generally charge a 20% performance fee that primarily goes to the strategy management (as long as the fund performs over 5% otherwise no performance fee is charged. CARL may receive a small portion of the performance fee while most of it goes to the fund management. This is why CARL focuses on high performing funds, 15+%. These are standard hedge fund fees, they haven't had to increase, and historically they make sense as long as funds perform.
Is it safe?
You can be assured the investments CARL offers have completed institutional grade due diligence in partnership with Aon. They make sure they would invest in each fund they offer, which means the investment and operational risks meet reasonable standards. Essentially they work to find funds with strong risk controls and strong overall performance. These investments can increase or decrease in value, and historical performance is not necessarily a indicator of future performance. All funds do have intended risk controls, for example must-sell minimums, to control their down-side risk, while whether to stay or exit a fund is always at your discretion.
