Join us for a special edition of the Asset Allocators in Crypto Series, featuring Hyperion Decimus! In this webinar, we invite you to join the builders and scaled institutions who spend every day planning how to create, capture, and propagate value in this young asset class. We’ll focus on whether and how traditional market dynamics inform the movements of crypto assets, and how newcomers from more established asset classes can find their footing with an approach that complements their existing portfolio strategy and risk appetite.

In this webinar, we talk about:

  • Crypto Allocations within a Broader Portfolio: We’ll explore how Hyperion approaches crypto as an allocation within a broader portfolio for the purposes of holistic asset management. Whether you’re just considering your first allocation to crypto or you’re running a fund of your own, Hyperion’s approach to risk management and alpha generation will give you food for thought as you build your own strategy in a young yet rapidly maturing asset class.
  • How to Think about Trading Value in the Crypto Asset Class: Hyperion and sFOX will illuminate the best ways to apply traditional frameworks like market cycles and value-based trading in crypto, separating the signal from the noise that often overwhelms the sector.
  • The Real Value and Features to Look for in a Crypto Asset Management Platform: We’ll clearly define the real factors that hedge funds and other scaled, professional institutions look for in evaluating asset management solutions to help them run their business, giving you a fresh understanding of what a vetted and reliable service provider looks like in crypto.
