Clearpool Announces New Borrower — LedgerPrime

Clearpool has announced the latest single borrower pool to be launched on its DeFi protocol. The pool, launched by LedgerPrime, will be available exclusively on the Clearpool Polygon market.

To learn more about LedgerPrime, Clearpool interviewed their team to introduce LedgerPrime to the Clearpool community.

LedgerPrime is a multi-strategy digital asset investment firm with investment personnel in the US, Canada, Dubai, Netherlands, and Korea. We launched in 2017 as part of Ledger Holdings, which was subsequently acquired by FTX US in 2021. Historically, our LPs have been large institutional allocators.

Multi-strategy asset management firm. Most of our strategies are market-neutral, quantitative and systematic strategies. We focus especially on the derivatives and options markets as market makers.

We are scaling our options trading operations, especially the OTC side, and see unique opportunities to grow our market share. While the revenue from this side of the business can be steady and predictable, options and OTC businesses as a whole can be quite capital-intensive at times.

Clearpool’s dynamic market rate adjustment model is innovative. We believe a floating rate, open-term-like experience is best suited for investors and borrowers in the current market environment.

We typically borrow from lenders in US$1–2M tranches over several months (US$10–20M in total) and are currently seeking US$5–10M from Clearpool in aggregate.

LedgerPrime has been in business for over five years and has demonstrated its ability to withstand a variety of market conditions. LedgerPrime is also wholly owned and capitalized by one of the largest firms in the world.

We have stop losses in place for the majority of our trading strategies, and our overall portfolio is constantly stress-tested via simulation. Credit and counterparty risk is mitigated by us via diversification, where we have strict exposure limits in place for individual counterparties and overall exposure tiers depending on licensing, audits, insurance funds, and transparency of the types of counterparties.

We aim to be one of the largest electronic and OTC options market makers in the space and will continue to expand our multi-strategy approach as a firm overall.

Most of the funds will be used for short-term collateral and trading capital pertaining to our options and OTC business. all of the articles are linked there.
