Direct Fund Investing.

Tap into the power of investing directly in specific private equity funds. Diversify your portfolio, decrease market correlation, reduce volatility and look for higher risk-adjusted returns.

Why Direct?

Access

Historically, private equity fund investments were out of reach for everyone except for institutional investors, family offices and the ultra-wealthy. Moonfare levelled the playing field — enabling qualified investors to access this lucrative asset class.

Outperformance

Benefit from what so many institutional investors already know: private markets lead to better returns. Funds like the ones we offer on Moonfare have generated an average IRR of 19 percent since 1999 — outperforming the S&P 500 by 13 percent. ¹

Growing asset class

The private capital industry grew to $10 trillion last year — and is projected to grow to $18 trillion by 2026.² When investors tap into private equity, they gain access to a rapidly-growing asset class that reaches beyond the public markets.

No membership dues

Our fees are based on your allocations — nothing else. We charge a one-time fee ranging from 0.5 to 1.5 percent for each allocation and our yearly management fee is as low as 0.35 percent, depending on share classes.

No hidden fees

Each Key Investor Document clearly lays out fund-specific fees and models how fees impact investor returns.

No GP fees

We don't collect fees from GPs. The only funds that make it onto Moonfare are the ones we feel are best for our members.

Invest with just 25 percent up front*

Investing in private equity takes less upfront cash than you might think. Since the typical investment period is seven to 10 years, the full commitment gets spread out over time via capital calls. In most cases, the upfront capital is only 25 percent.

Through the J-Curve, sophisticated investors create a "self-funding" portfolio by investing in several funds or vintages. Over time, distributions from older funds can offset capital calls from new ones — further reducing your cash flow requirements.

* Please see fund documentation for details. Moonfare may call more than 25% upfront if needed by the underlying investment fund.

Secondary market. Your path to early liquidity.

As the first platform to offer a digital secondary market for private market feeder funds, Moonfare makes investing in private equity more flexible with institutional-style liquidity. We've teamed up with Lexington Partners to offer you the Moonfare secondary market: it enables you to buy and sell stakes in funds before the lifecycle completes — bringing new liquidity to the asset class.
