Glafka Capital will host its new fund on a VALK Corda-powered platform. Glafka’s Starboard Digital Strategies investors will benefit from an institutional grade hedge fund, with a strategy that taps on the opportunities generated by the extreme volatility in digital currencies and transforms them to high market neutral returns with low standard deviation. The fund draws on the expertise of FCA-authorised Glafka’s Digital Assets Group, ranging from derivatives trading, blockchain development, risk management and regulatory compliance.

Institutional investors may register, qualify and purchase completely online in a few clicks. Glafka and VALK are also working on offering secondary market opportunities for Glafka’s digital products. Antoine Loth, Co-Founder, VALK, said: “We can’t wait to see investors make the most of the hassle-free subscription and rapid liquidity features made possible by the Corda-powered VALK platform.“

“The launch of Starboard Digital Strategies underpins Glafka Capital’s ambitious foray into digital asset management services, looking to unleash the vast investment opportunities in this emerging space. After embarking on significant investments in both human capital and proprietary technological solutions, we are now proud to offer our clients a unique product that captures lucrative returns by harnessing digital currencies’ high volatility,” said Glafka Capital co-Founder Petros Mylonas.

VALK is a London and Zurich based FinTech that has developed an end-to-end digital solution for private markets that can be used by investment banks, asset managers and fund managers that want to digitise their processes and assets from end to end to reduce costs, time spent on processes, improve user experience and transactions and operate secondary market trades. Their solution is built on two strong banking technological infrastructures: Corda and BT Radianz, giving clients access to a wide network of financial institutions they can connect and trade with. Being built on Corda, VALK allows for instant settlement on chain, investing and secondary market trading in a secure, compliant and robust environment and interoperability and connectivity with the world’s largest banking DLT ecosystem.

Glafka Capital is a UK investment firm authorised and regulated by the FCA. Glafka has offices across Europe covering asset management, equities, debt capital markets, investment banking and M&A advisory.  The firm is the first globally to have fully incorporated its investment banking services with the latest advancements of Corda blockchain technology.
