Exponential Age Asset Management CIO Moritz Seibert returns with a new episode in his asset management series where he explores the techniques of top asset managers in the crypto-verse. Seibert welcomes Nickel Digital Portfolio Manager David Fauchier to explain the market-neutral approach behind the Diversified Alpha Fund he oversees. Investors in old-school financial markets have long cherished market-neutral strategies, which match leveraged long and short bets to protect returns against adverse moves. Fauchier notes that this product type is uncommon in crypto, where directional products dominate the market. He believes market-neutral strategies are a real value-add to investors in a volatile crypto market where it can take years for something to happen. Fauchier walks Seibert through the specifics of the firm’s trading style, highlighting strategies based on the concept of market neutrality.
