The Arca Advantage

Experienced Risk Managers

Our seasoned portfolio team has experience managing money across several different asset classes in volatile markets. Our fundamental risk management philosophy is to look at how low a security can go, and mitigate downside risk.

Global Macro Strategy

Our funds analyze global economic events and asset classes in combination with crypto-specific events. We also look at emerging markets and trends in the technology sector to identify areas of growth.

Bottom Up Security Analysis

We believe that tokens are both securities and tech products. Therefore, our thesis-driven security-by-security analysis includes a thorough technical vetting that evaluates the strength of a protocol and underlying infrastructure.

Institutional Caliber Operations

We partner with leading service providers to ensure that we have the procedures in place to protect and secure investors' cryptocurrency assets. We adhere to the strictest security, custodial, and regulatory standards.
