A pledge fund takes place when individual investors get together and come up with the goal of investing in a particular type of investment. The members of the pledge fund then start making contributions to the fund for a specific period of time. Once the monetary goal is reached, the pledge fund will invest in the investment on behalf of all of the people in the fund.

Advantages

One of the advantages of a pledge fund is that it allows individual investors to pool their money together with others. This allows them to benefit from economies of scale and can help them make more money. Another advantage of this type of investment is that it allows investors to be flexible and only choose the investments that they feel comfortable with. With other types of funds, a fund manager will make the investment decisions for everyone and the investors have to live with it. If you do not feel comfortable with a particular investment option, you can choose not to contribute.
