Portal Digital Fund
The Portal Digital Fund provides investors with a diversified portfolio of digital currency investment strategies by focusing on best-in-class hedge fund managers operating in the digital asset space.
Who We Are
The Portal Digital Fund is a fully licensed Cayman Island-domiciled fund of hedge funds managed by Singapore-based First Degree Global Asset Management. We provide investors with simple and efficient access to this exciting and nascent asset class via a professionally managed structure, whilst providing monthly liquidity.
What We Do
Our Investment Committee combines deep digital asset industry technical knowledge with extensive fund management proficiency and our vast global network enables us to give our investors access to the most sophisticated fund management strategies that are not easily found nor accessible to most investors.
The Fund seeks to deliver sustainable, risk-adjusted returns that are uncorrelated with both traditional and alternative investment strategies as well as the overall cryptocurrency market. We are long term investors and do not focus on short-term gains and trends. The fund targets 25%-30% p.a. net return with 15%-20% annualised volatility on a rolling 12-month basis, exceeding these targets in 2020 with a 46.6% return and 2021 with a 104% return.
Our Investment Process
The Fund focuses on capital preservation and manages volatility in its returns via strategic portfolio construction and risk management practices based on underlying individual fund Value at Risk (VaR) assessment, duration and correlation factors.
Funds are analysed using a multi-factor approach that combines both qualitative and quantitative assessment. We conduct rigorous operational due diligence and continually monitor our active investments and communicate with fund managers.
By diversifying across a range of investment strategies that are focused on different styles, sectors and durations, we provide access to the entire digital asset continuum. We follow a rigorous in-depth investment process that is applied consistently to source and analyse the best fund managers operating globally. This is combined with ongoing fund monitoring and dynamic portfolio construction with prudent risk management that ensures investors receive a professionally managed Fund to access the digital currency space.
