In 2016, we established Blockchain Partners Holdings (BPH) in Wollongong, Australia as a cryptocurrency research, advisory, proprietary trading and technology firm. In the early days, we mostly focused on long-only, quantitative, algorithmic trading strategies based on social and on-chain data, to develop investment strategies. Late 2019, Blockchain Partners Holdings expanded and was rebranded as GLOBAL DIGITAL ASSETS FUND under Dubai International Financial Centre and Dubai Financial Services Authority.
GDA FUND is a Prescribed Company (Similar to an ISPV) under the GDA holding company. Under its proprietary investment license type, GDA Fund was established for the purpose of investing, holding and designing an investment vehicle that parallels traditional portfolio investments, like hedge funds, but are composed entirely out of digital assets.
Unlike BPH investing methodologies, GDA Fund focuses on tail risk hedging. In short, Black Swan Insurance for crypto—the focus is implementing a market direction agnostic insurance mechanism against extreme market moves for selected crypto instruments. The crypto market is new and extremely unpredictable. The common investment approach has been to either chase the return and bear the risk, or to de-risk and accept the lower rewards. Unfortunately, the reality is most investors follow the first approach when times are good and markets are calm, and move to de-risking mode when markets sell-off. The outcome is risky assets are held when the returns are lowest and the transition to safety occurs when low-risk assets are most expensive. We repeated this mistake many times over the past 3 years.
Today our investment thesis is focused on tail risk principles to protect assets and to deploy strategies to capitalise opportunities during volatile times, applying multi-strategy capital allocation methodology for trading and carefully invest in emerging protocols that have been deemed to have high growth potential. We distinguish ourselves by introducing tail risk hedging into crypto and using the GDA High Volatility Protocol as a hybrid Asset Backed Security (ABS) for the CeFi distribution mechanism.
