Fantastically Asked Questions

What is Hedgehog?

A hedgehog is a cute spiky mammal that.... Oh wait, you mean us.

We are a blockchain-driven investing platform that makes investments in real-world assets available to eligible individual investors.

How does a Hedgehog investment work?

We partner with existing owners of real-world assets to create digital tokens representing fractional investments. This makes it possible for eligible individuals to invest alongside the existing owners, who continue to manage the asset.

When you buy these tokens in our app, you can earn a share of any rental income or profit generated when the asset is sold or re-financed.

What are the benefits of investing via Hedgehog?

We help people access investments in things like commercial real estate and renewable energy infrastructure, otherwise known as 'real assets'. These types of asset can generate income and often appreciate over time.

Real assets with intrinsic value can provide stability and reassurance during stock market volatility while offering potential portfolio diversification benefits.

What is a token?

We use 'tokenisation' technology, underpinned by blockchain-based smart contracts, to offer digital tokens backed by income generated, directly or indirectly, by real-world assets. When investing via our platform, your token is a digital representation of your investment in a fund, such as a limited liability company or limited partnership, that pools money from investors in order to invest in the underlying asset. Instead of holding a paper certificate, you own a digital token.

What is the minimum investment amount?

Right now, it's from $1,000, depending on the asset.

What fees do I pay?

Hedgehog does not charge any up front fees to our investors. Instead of Hedgehog charging fees to our investors, the owners of the assets listed on our platform pay us for the services we provide. The owners of assets may also charge a fee in relation to amounts invested by Hedgehog investors (in respect of their management of such investment).

For investments that appreciate in value over time, Hedgehog charges a fee on any profit gained once the asset has been sold or re-financed. Terms and conditions are outlined in each offering document.

How do I get access to investments?

To access to our investments, register here and start investing once your eligibility is confirmed.

Why use tokenization?

Hedgehog uses ‘tokenization’ technology, underpinned by blockchain-based smart contracts, to offer digital tokens that are backed by income generated, directly or indirectly, by real-world assets. The technology helps Hedgehog remove barriers to entry and enables eligible individuals to have more control over the investments they own. Technology helps Hedgehog make it more accessible and efficient for people to invest through digital and automatic investment processes. Hedgehog envisages an exciting future, and tokenization is the first step in giving investors access to liquidity, which would otherwise not have been available for these asset classes.

How do I earn returns on my investment?

Returns on investments in real assets typically come from appreciation and/or income. Asset values can go up due to factors associated with location, development or improvements. The asset itself can also generate income, for example rent from commercial or residential use.

Who is managing the assets on the ground day-to-day?

We partner with asset owners to offer co-investment opportunities with the team managing the asset. Your money is invested alongside theirs- it helps ensure a better alignment of interests.

How will I receive updates about my investments?

You can access information on your assets 24/7 from the Portfolio section of the app. We'll also send you notifications when there's important information to share, such as an income distribution.

Is Hedgehog regulated?

Hedgehog Invest Limited (FN 961050) is an Appointed Representative of MJ Hudson Advisers Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FN: 692447).

What currency will I be paid in?

We currently pay out in USD via wire transfer.

What happens after I make my investment?

When we receive your payment, the status of your order in your portfolio will change from ‘Pending’ to ‘Issuing tokens’. When the investment round closes, it'll change to ‘issued’. The money received through the issuance of tokens will then be used by the token issuer to enter into the underlying investment.

When do I get my token?

Our token issuance service provider issues all tokens together at the end of an investment round. Some rounds can be 90 days, but can sell out faster. So, if you're one of the first investors, you'll wait longer than the slow coach snapping up the final token. Details regarding the token issuance service provider, as well as other service providers, are set out in the offering documents for each token.

Where are my tokens held after I invest?

Tokens are initially issued to a digital wallet provided by a third party custodian chosen by Hedgehog. Investors can continue to use that wallet or transfer their tokens from this wallet to another digital wallet that is registered to them.

Who manages the properties?

Hedgehog creates opportunities for eligible individuals to invest in assets that continue to be managed by their existing owners.

Investment Themes

Industrial & Logistics

On-demand is in demand

What: All types of industrial properties, like modern warehouses, where goods and products are manufactured, prepared for delivery or stored.

Why: E-commerce and the on-demand culture of society today has increased the need for modern warehouses, distribution facilities and fulfilment centres within easy reach of major cities. More space is needed by tenants than there is available for them to rent.

Renewable Energy

Environmental

What: Critical infrastructure, such as rooftop solar, that supports the transition to green energy and reduces electricity costs for tenants.

Why: Demand for renewables is growing rapidly as tenants, like most consumers, seek more sustainable forms of energy. This infrastructure has positive effects on the environment, while long-term contracts can provide investors with a reliable source of income.

Content Studios

Content is king

What: Purpose-built content production facilities for the film & television industry, including soundstages and creative space.

Why: Consumer appetite for 24/7 streaming creates pressure to deliver more content and increasing demand for studios where it can be produced. Major studios and streaming giants need more space than is available, meaning long leases and high rents.

Residential Apartments

Live. Work. Play.

What: Well-located apartments, lofts and micro flats with state-of-the-art amenities offering lifestyle living in exciting metropolitan areas.

Why: Demand for modern living in the world’s best cities, like New York, is resilient. People, especially young people, are attracted to sustainable communities where other people, culture, work and entertainment are all nearby.

Affordable Housing

Social

What: High-quality, affordable multi-family homes built in sought-after locations with transport links that provide convenient commuting for tenants with jobs in urban areas.

Why: Due to the widespread shortage of affordable homes in the US, Government-led programs have long waitlists of tenants that are sourced and vetted by the local authorities. More affordable social housing results in positive outcomes for the local community.

Biomedical & Life Sciences

Medical Expansion

What: Anchored by loyal medical tenants, these are mixed-use properties that include healthcare facilities, labs and administrative space.

Why: Driven by structural trends such as an ageing population and increased funding for innovation, the medical sector continues to demonstrate significant growth. Demand for space is in high demand, especially in the fields of biotech and life sciences.
