The Portal Digital Fund Ranked as the Top Performing Asia Pacific Fund of Hedge Funds

Preqin, the leading provider of analytical data to alternative asset investment professionals, has named the Portal Digital Fund (Portal) as the top performing Fund of Hedge Funds within the Asia-Pacific Fund of Hedge Fund category in its H1 2021 Honour Roll.

Portal has returned 67.3% net of fees year to date with a rolling 98% return net of fees over the past 12 months from its Fund of Hedge Funds focused on investing in digital asset and cryptocurrency fund managers.

CEO and Co-Founder of Portal Asset Management, Mr. Deryck Graham said: “To achieve such recognition by Preqin early in our development is an honour and testament to the hard work of the team.

CIO and Director of Portal Asset Management, Mr. Mark O Witten said “the fund is currently diversified across 9 institutional-grade digital asset funds, running differentiated strategies across the volatility continuum and focused on diverse sectors of the crypto market. This strategy reduces volatility and mitigates risk otherwise found in single strategy hedge funds.”

Portal is also privileged to have the technical backing of Nitin Guar, CTO and Director of IBM Financial Sciences and Digital Assets based in Austin, Texas along with a further 6 team members including advisers and in house support located in Australia, Singapore, the USA and Canada.

The team at Portal believe the crypto economy is at an embryonic stage where volatility will dominate, and opportunities are in abundance. In a world of low yield, mature stage assets it is exciting to see the opportunity for exponential growth in this nascent global industry and rapidly emerging asset class.
