Arquant Capital the first Frendh asset manager to have received authorisation to offer professional investors (institutional investors, private banks, family offices and corporate clients) a range of specialised professional funds that are actively managed and directly invested in cryptocurrencies.

Of the new seek to offer professional investors the possibility to diversify their asset allocation by gaining direct exposure to bitcoin and ether through investment vehicles that meet their compliance requirements and operate under the same tax regime as mutual funds.

The funds’ investment process combines the use of algorithms with discretionary oversight by the fund managers. The strategy draws on both the expertise of a proprietary quantitative management model and a management committee, who together boast over 40 years of experience in the world of traditional finance (Goldman Sachs, La Banque Postale AM, Citibank, etc).

This investment process has been deployed by Arquant Capital since January 2020 to manage mandates for professional investors and has enabled it to deliver returns above those of the underlying assets while significantly reducing the level of volatility inherent in digital assets.

Arquant Capital is working alongside various leading groups to launch its fund range, including Société Générale Securities Services as the FIAT custodian and liability manager and PwC France as the auditor for its funds.
