Announcing Blockforce Vesper DeFi Growth Fund

At Blockforce Capital, we believe institutional investors face a challenging investment environment. Low interest rates not only have caused fixed income portions of the portfolio to struggle to generate meaningful yield but have also resulted in valuations getting stretched across all asset classes as a lot of money is chasing a relatively limited pool of assets.

Institutional investors need creative solutions to adapt to this new reality. Blockforce Capital believes cryptoassets and DeFi can provide that much needed solution. Cryptoassets have been the best performing asset class over the last 1, 3, 5 and 10 year timeframe and there is good reason to believe this will continue in the coming decade. Furthermore, cryptoassets are uncorrelated with other asset classes thus allowing investors to increase their risk adjusted returns as a result of increased diversification within their portfolios. Finally, the emergence of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is now allowing for passive income to be generated in addition to the price appreciation of the asset.

Unfortunately, for too long, institutional and accredited investors have sat on the sidelines, watching the substantial capital appreciation and yield available in the burgeoning DeFi ecosystem. Accessing DeFi is difficult due to technical and compliance challenges and furthermore has a steep learning curve for those new to the asset class.

This is no longer the case.

Blockforce Capital is proud to announce the Blockforce Vesper DeFi Growth Fund. The Blockforce Capital Vesper DeFi Growth Fund targets superior risk-adjusted returns through a combination of quantitative strategies enhanced by the staking of cryptoassets on the Vesper DeFi platform. Similar to a traditional portfolio allocation of stocks and bonds, we seek capital appreciation in primary spot markets and then stake those underlying assets in the Vesper Protocol to stack yield on top of the returns of the underlying positions.

Most importantly, we provide a standard, familiar fund structure that allows investors to gain access to DeFi without the technical or compliance complexities of trying to do it themselves. In doing so, we are bridging institutional and public market access to an ecosystem of DeFi assets. Blockforce will invest in a portfolio of digital assets and deploy those assets into Vesper Pools while systematically rebalancing in order to take advantage of price fluctuations between assets and earn superior risk-adjusted returns over a full market cycle.

Blockforce Capital is an award winning asset management firm with a history of delivering superior risk managed investment solutions and the expertise to take advantage of the Vesper DeFi ecosystem. In 2020, Blockforce Capital was named one of the top 10 crypto hedge funds by Barclay Hedge. The fund is managed by a mix of crypto and DeFi experts and successful hedge fund managers

Why did we choose to partner with Vesper? In our opinion, the Vesper ecosystem is one the most robust, institutional grade DeFi platform on the market today. Vesper offers a suite of yield-generating products from leading protocols to liquidity providers. The Vesper platform was developed by some of the most influential and respected minds in the crypto industry including Jeff Garzik, one of the early core developers on the Bitcoin Blockchain. The Vesper founding team serves as strategic advisors to the fund giving Blockforce an edge and understanding of the ecosystem that no one can match.

Blockforce has the expertise needed to leverage the promise of DeFi, and in a fast evolving space is better suited to quickly respond and benefit from innovations and opportunities as they arise. The Vesper DeFi Growth Fund is the first in a family of thematic and protocol-based funds and we are proud to offer early access to this asset class. The Blockforce Capital Vesper DeFi Growth Fund provides a simple, convenient, compliant way for investors to access the DeFi ecosystem.
