Risk Mitigated Strategies with Digital Currencies & Options

Fintek Capital is a boutique investment firm based in Atlanta, GA and the architect of the Hedged Yield Strategy, utilizing options collars and combinations around highly liquid US exchange traded securities and derivatives.

Bitcoin Trading

Fintek Capital CEO Bill Taylor edits a daily market overview for FintekNews entitled “The Taylor Report”, and  compares the price of Bitcoin, Gold & Major Market Averages on a daily basis, using the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) bitcoin indexes (BRR & BRTI) for bitcoin pricing.  He also provides trading summary notes after the market close, and has published his documented trading track record since inception.  


As of August 2018, the strategy has returned over 400%.

Future Hedge Funds & Security Token Offering

INVESTING IN THE GROUNDBREAKING RMG & MORE - Fintek Capital is launching a new digital currency (FTKCC) through a Security Token Offering in early 2019.  The FTKCC coin will include holdings in the groundbreaking RMG digital gold coin, a collaboration of the Royal Mint & Chicago Mercantile Exchange.  A digital asset fund will be underlying the coin, investing 75% in digital physical gold and  will also hold investments in up to the top 5 cryptocurrencies by market cap, utilizing available options and futures to mitigate risk, and function like an ETF for digital currencies.

A Deeper Dive

Future Funds

Fintek Capital plans to create a suite of various funds, each with their own unique token that will be listed on the first fully regulated security token exchange in Gibraltar. 


By establishing a NAV for each of these funds and offering a “tracking token” that will allow liquidity for investors, Fintek Capital seeks to become the “Blackrock” of “ETTFs” (Exchange Traded Token Funds).  

  

Fintek Capital plans to form and structure these additional hedge funds via Security Token Offerings that will ‘tokenize” illiquid assets such as fine art, wine and other collectables that have not previously been available to most investors. This has been made possible with the advent of blockchain technology. 


The management of Fintek Capital is currently working with several high level blockchain and asset-focused firms to bring this concept to market.


They include:


Bitgo Custody

Circle Trade/Institutional

UK Royal Mint (for the RMG)

Perth Mint

Ramparts European Law Firm

Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange

Juno Services (prev Grant Thornton) - Gibraltar

TotumRisk
