Hedonova is a low-minimum hedge fund that invests in a portfolio of alternative asset classes like art, wine, “unicorn” startups, equipment finance, litigation finance among others.

YieldTalk readers can get a $50 sign-up bonus when investing.

  •  Real Estate

FarmTogether is a real estate investing platform offering income-producing shares in US farmland. Investors earn money two ways: quarterly cash rent payments from farmers plus a return on the long-term appreciation of the land when it’s sold. The FarmTogether website is outstanding, and their investor education material is extensive and easy to find. Minimums are high and selection is limited, but may be worth a look for investors interested in agricultural and farmland as an asset class.

  •  Cryptocurrency
  •  Consumer Loans

BlockFi offers an accessible way to invest in loans backed by cryptocurrency. Although they use some of the same language as a traditional interest-bearing bank account, they are not a bank and funds are not FDIC insured. Adventurous investors comfortable with the cryptocurrency ecosystem may find this a compelling place to park some money, but be sure to fully understand the risks beforehand. New account holders can receive up to $250 in free Bitcoin.
