OC Horizon FinTech, an Asia based fund has concluded its first two months of activity in the world of blockchain-related fund operation. In its launch year of 2017, the fund reported a 58% return through a diversified portfolio of blockchain-related equities and digital assets, including both high market cap cryptocurrencies and strategically selected altcoins.
The hedge fund, with an initial target of raising $150 million, is the first of its kind to place cryptocurrency assets within the reach of institutional investors. Until now, institutional investors have avoided investing in volatile cryptocurrencies – but consistent growth in the space has convinced experts that blockchain and related technologies can benefit users in terms of transparency, security, and other aspects, that will offer investors long-term growth.
What we see now is a global race to introduce cryptocurrency assets to traditional investment portfolios. The greatest gains await those few fintech investment firms capable of introducing investors to these assets under the strict regulatory framework traditional investment securities enjoy.
OC Horizon FinTech is one of the first institutional-graded funds in Asia to capitalize on the blockchain and cryptocurrency revolution beyond simply just investing in its most famous example: Bitcoin. With a broader scope to include both digital assets and related equities in their analysis, the fund’s research team can examine the underlying features of each type of digital assets (DA) to determine their individual intrinsic values. The company’s leadership team consists of two experienced investment strategists with expertise in the field of innovative technology.
OC Horizon Fintech fund is managed by Dr. Justin Chan, a UCLA Ph.D., and John DeCleene, a blockchain specialist and Tulane University graduate with an extensive background in US public policy. Together, the two fund managers combine their research backgrounds to evaluate the potential of various technologies from multi-disciplinary perspectives. Advised by a team of experts from the United States, Hong Kong, and Singapore, the Cayman-registered fund aggregates valuable inputs gathered from industry professionals in order to help investors profit from innovations.
“As we delve deep into the exciting world of blockchain technology, we’re looking forward to providing investors with access to our strategies.” – Dr. Justin Chan, hedge fund manager, OC Horizon FinTech.
“Our vision is incorporated into how we initially named our fund,” added Dr. Chan.
“Long-term alpha lies in how far we see into the horizon.”
“With a combination of both expertise in this field and other important facilities in terms of storage and security solutions, we look forward to providing investors with a secure investment into this new and fascinating market.”, John added.
