Hedge is a licensed financial institution. Hedge Pro LLC is an SEC-registered broker-dealer, and a FINRA/SIPC member.
Hedge is the first financial institution built to be inclusive from day 1. Invite friends to help us maintain an inclusive culture as our community grows.
Hedge brokerage customers are covered under standard SIPC protections, as well as up to $37.5M in excess coverage.
Hedge offers both individual and group investing for US Exchange-Listed equities (stocks), ETFs, and options contracts on these securities.
When you initially sign up for Hedge, you'll be opening a personal brokerage account, which is where you'll make investments by yourself. Once you're approved, you'll be able to start investing with friends in a matter of seconds.
Your cash & investments are always held in your own brokerage account(s) that are titled in your name alone, regardless of whether these assets are invested personally or with a group. Your group investments (which are held separately from those of your fellow group members) are not held in your personal account, but are rather held in a separate member account for each group you're a part of (meaning a user who signs up for Hedge and joins a group would have two (2) distinct brokerage accounts).
*Brokerage services are provided by Hedge Pro LLC, a registered broker dealer with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), and a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Please see our disclosures for additional information.
Hedge allows you to make a hedge fund with your friends & securely invest together in a matter of seconds with no fees, incorporation, or wait time required on a sleek, intuitive mobile application for the first time ever.
Invite your friends to form a new group, fund your accounts, and discuss/vote on proposals to make investment decisions together.
Group investing is NOT a copy-trading functionality - there is really one trade being placed on behalf of your group each time a proposal to buy/sell an asset is approved, to ensure that your group is able to enter/exit each position at the same time.
Your cash & investments are held separately from those of the other members of your group at all times, in a brokerage account that is titled in your name only. You are the only one who can withdraw or transfer your cash or investments to an external account. Your other account(s), financial profile, and other sensitive information are visible to you alone, and never to any other user or group member to protect your privacy.
You'll also get the same tax forms for each group that you're a part of that you get for your personal investments.
*Brokerage services are provided by Hedge Pro LLC, a registered broker dealer (SEC), and a FINRA/SIPC member. When you first sign up for Hedge, you will be opening a personal brokerage account, where you will be able to invest individually (rather than with a group). Hedge does not provide any tax or investment advice, and does not make any trade recommendations. All brokerage accounts are self-directed. Please see our disclosures for additional information.
Groups propose and vote together to make investment decisions. When you first set up your group, you'll be asked to set a voting threshold that will determine how many members will be required to approve a new investment proposal. This threshold can be set to a simple majority (ie. 6 out of 10 members), for example, or can be set all the way up to a unanimous voting threshold, which would require all group members to approve any new investment made by the group.
Withdrawing assets from your group account to your personal account does NOT require group approval. Assets you transfer from your group account(s) to your personal account will be made available to sell from your personal brokerage account as soon as your transfer request has been confirmed and will not require other group members to sell their respective holdings of these same assets. This allows you to liquidate a portion of your holdings without incurring a capital gain or loss, or other taxable event, on your fellow group members.
Nope! Our mission is to reinvent investing to be more collaborative & inclusive, and to help communities of all backgrounds start building their financial futures by investing, learning, and growing together. With Hedge, anyone can make a hedge fund with their friends & start investing together in a matter of seconds.
*You must be at least 18 years old, have a valid US address, and be a US-citizen or permanent resident to be eligible to sign up for Hedge. Your meeting these requirements in of themselves is not a guarantee that you will be eligible to use the Hedge platform, or to open a brokerage account with Hedge. Please see our disclosures page with additional information.
You can start investing together with as little as $5 per person!
