Wakem Capital Management is a discretionary digital asset & global macro fund manager that targets absolute returns with low correlation to equity & fixed income markets. Wakem leverages economic theory and proprietary risk frameworks to obtain asymmetric exposure to digital assets.
In this webinar, John Vincent, CEO & Founder of Wakem Capital Management will provide insights into the unprecedented rate of change across cryptocurrencies and the application of blockchain technologies.
Many investors are now realizing that mass acceptance of crypto is already here even if mass adoption is still debatable. Investors are now presented with multiple crypto on-ramps for gaining exposure to an asset class that has outperformed every other asset class over a rolling 4- year time horizon since its inception 13 years ago. Crypto fundamentals remain very strong and the recent drawdown may present one of the greatest opportunities to move into this fast-maturing asset class.
In this webinar John will cover the topics below:
- How proactive risk management helps create a compounding profile that outperforms the underlying on a risk-adjusted basis
- Crypto has outperformed every other asset class over a rolling 4-year time horizon since its inception 13 years ago
- There have been six 80% corrections during the 13 years of crypto's existence, and we are currently in a 60%+ drawdown - how can investors capitalise on this opportunity?
- The move from traditional finance to DeFi is occurring at a breakneck pace and research practices and asset allocation strategies in portfolios need to be able to adjust at the same rate of development
- Evaluating the available on ramps to make your initial crypto portfolio allocation
