Our investment philosophy

High levels of volatility in cryptocurrencies creates an opportunity to use systematic long/short strategies to potentially generate superior performance by capturing both bull and bear market moves. In addition, trading and investing in a basket of partially correlated cryptocurrencies is expected to achieve better performance compared to an exposure only to Bitcoin or Etherum thanks to portfolio diversification and different volatility.

Our risk management framework monitor various types of risks as managing risk and preserving capital for our clients are of primary importance to us. And although there is no absolute guarantee that it will prevent losses to occur we aim to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
