INVESTMENT FUNDS
04
A non-directional, multi-strategy fund that wraps a diversified portfolio of typically hard-to-access external managers into a single investible fund. Underlying strategies are fully systematic and include arbitrage, high frequency market making, statistical arbitrage and relative value. The fund relies on inhouse, robust multi level risk management infrastructure, allowing for 24/7 real-time risk control across multiple execution venues. The fund targets double digit returns with high Sortino ratio.
This fund captures structural expansion of the Web3 and digital assets space. Portfolio construction is based on a research-intense approach of investing in liquid tokens of Layer 1, Layer 2 protocols and DeFi applications. The portfolio allocation is based on analysis of their use cases, competitive position, liquidity criteria, developers activity and a range of network ratios. The fund is designed to achieve VC-style returns over a cycle, while offering monthly liquidity.

The fund allows for secure, efficient, transparent and liquid access to Bitcoin, the leading digital asset, and is designed to remove existing complexities and inefficiencies in BTC index-tracking products. We provide the market leading crypto security framework, offer daily subscriptions and redemptions, as well as trading at mid-market NAV, with no premia or discounts to the fair market price. Nickel uses sophisticated execution algorithms to minimise unwanted trading slippage, which is especially critical for large trading volumes.
ASSET SECURITY

Asset security

Security of Digital Assets
Security of clients' assets is paramount at Nickel. The investment manager deploys an independent institutional-grade custody solution, whereby the manager has no transfer right over the funds. This control is retained jointly by the Fund Administrator and Custodian at all times.
Custodians and Prime Brokerage
In order to create a highly secure custody solution, we have partnered with the two leading custodians in the industry, US-based Fidelity and UK-based Copper. This sophisticated solution includes an air-gapped, multi-signature cross-organisation custody model with automated and secure exchange-to-custody transfers.

The major US asset management house was chosen as a cold storage custody provider for Digital Gold Institutional Fund, bringing its reputation and financial resources to provide trusted, secure custody. Fidelity has built an enterprise-grade custody solution for large institutional clients.
The award winning London-based custodian and prime brokerage house is providing critical infrastructure for secure trading at multiple exchanges, off exchange settlements and secure vault storage of digital assets. Copper can securely custody over 100 various digital assets.
Fireblocks is a platform that protects digital assets in transit, focusing on protecting the transmission of customers' digital assets between exchanges, counter brokers, hot wallets, and cold stores. The technology consists of the Fireblocks Network and MPC-based Wallet Infrastructure.
