What is a Rolling Fund?
Rolling funds are a new breed of investment, but the concept is straightforward.
Also known as subscription funds, rolling funds were rolled out by AngelList in
February 2020, and have grown exponentially. Structured as limited
partnerships, each quarter (or series) a new fund is offered, but the terms of the
new fund are basically identical to the former fund. This pattern continues for as
long as the fund operates. “Rolling” refers to the fact that these funds remain

Each rolling fund manager determines the minimum quarterly subscription
amount. While some rolling funds offer minimums as low as $1,000 per quarter,
these are the exception. A typical rolling fund quarterly subscription minimum is more in the range of $6,250 per quarter, for a total of $25,000 annually. Other funds may charge $25,000 per quarter, or $100,000 annually, as a minimum, and some demand more than that.
