Independent financial boutique that focuses on asset management in the new emerging asset class — cryptocurrencies and digital assets based on blockchain technology
Our vision is to help individuals and institutional investors to benefit from the blockchain technology which has an enormous potential to transform the current monetary system
Cryptocurrencies, and in particular Bitcoin, are emerging as an important asset class with improved risk-return characteristics
Cryptocurrencies offer a second-to-none hedge against the risks associated with the continuous printing of fiat currencies which often leads to loss of value and purchasing power. Traditional risky assets are likely to serve as a poor hedge as valuations are expensive and global leverage is at an all-time high.
Cryptocurrencies provide excellent trading opportunities due to the guarantee of volatility in the early stages. We help investors to effectively navigate and guide their portfolio through the confusion and disbelief.

"We have no reason to hold stable coin as an investment. We can use fiat on our exchanges, but for trading, it is better to use crypto dollars instead of fiat dollars because it is faster and cheaper. You're talking about speed of minutes versus days for fiat." - Alexey Ivanov commented for Forbes.

Cryptocurrency Capital Appreciation Fund


The investment objective of this fund is to achieve long-term capital growth through investments, holding substantially all its assets in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum. The fund intends to invest primarily in long-term holdings in the top 10 cryptocurrencies based on the Black-Litterman model, i.e., using market weights subjected to portfolio managers' preferences.

Normally, re-weighting occurs once a month and/or when a newcomer claims a big weight from the beginning, or the portfolio manager assigns it extra weight according to the model. Currencies should be added to the portfolio based mostly on their market cap by applying some limitations:

  • Only eligible currencies can enter the selection process (currencies based on blockchain technology).
  • The portfolio should be limited to currencies that are easily traded on the exchange on a daily basis. Average daily turnover in the previous six months should not be below $1 million USD.
  • Once a selection is made, the structure of the portfolio is based on pre-defined rules. A rational investor does not want to be too exposed to individual currencies; therefore, a maximum weight is applied using the liquidity index

Blockchain Stars Fund


The fund will invest in a broad range of initial currency offerings (ICOs) once they pass due diligence and conform with the fund's investment objectives. The fund's holdings primarily will consist of new and growing blockchain technology projects, cryptocurrency businesses and ICOs that meet certain proprietary investment criteria tied to:

  • Stage of investment
  • Investment size
  • Geographic location
  • Type of investment
  • Management team
  • Proprietary product or service

Crypto Quantum Investments Fund


The fund will utilize algorithmic trading and seek arbitrage opportunities, as price discovery often remains obscure during initial stages of coin trading.

Classical Arbitrage

The principle of classical arbitrage is based on reaping profits from price differences on different exchanges. Prices on the exchanges differ due to the natural effect of decentralization and, for now, the weak development of the market, primarily from a technical point of view, i.e., exchanges are still operating on slow-enough web technologies. Since profit is often obtained from the inefficiencies of the system of execution and aggregation of quotes, classical arbitrage strategies are considered almost win-win.

Statistical Arbitrage

Statistical arbitration is very different from classic arbitrage. In fact, statistical arbitration has much more in common with conventional trading strategies, based on the calculation of probability. The main task is to reveal the patterns of price movements through different instruments and use them in trade.

Special Opportunity Fund


The fund's investment objective will be to achieve long-term capital growth by seeking to earn strong risk-adjusted returns from market dislocations, complex situations and distressed assets. The special-situations strategy is dynamic and able to deploy capital in multiple ways to capture opportunities arising from market dislocation.

Crypto Bond Investments Fund


The fund's investment objective will be to achieve capital growth from participating in the emerging crypto-bond market. The concept of crypto bonds allows users to lend money while having a low variation of debt in a traditional currency. In the long run, it would help more people around the world access more competitive investment opportunities. From a company perspective, it's a unique ability to borrow with lower interest rates.
