PROFESSIONAL INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT IN DIGITAL ASSETS
Money is changing. We invest in that opportunity.
Bitcoin is a truly global currency, uncorrelated with other markets. Global Advisors has 16 years experience as a regulated investment manager. Our bitcoin program provides a rare opportunity to gain uncorrelated returns from an emerging asset class.
Global Advisors (Jersey) Limited has a 16-year history of managing client funds as a regulated investment manager. The firm's principals started trading in the commodity markets over 30 years ago, initially in a discretionary capacity and more recently evolving to an advanced systematic approach.
After studying bitcoin for some time, the firm's principals were struck by the parallels with commodities as those developed into investable asset markets from the mid-1990s onwards.
Global Advisors (Jersey) Limited has created the first institutional-grade Bitcoin investment strategy ("GABI"), applying the highest professional management standards to create a truly groundbreaking venture.
The aim of GABI is to provide exposure to the price movements of bitcoin while managing the risks which come with being involved in an exciting new market.
Bitcoin's acceptance has grown rapidly as investors have begun to recognize the value of an asset with limited issuance, insulated from the effects of any country's monetary policy.
GABI is the first institutional-grade program for managing exposure to bitcoin. We have a proven track record managing the risks and inherent volatility while outperforming the US Dollar Bitcoin index over the long term. We bring extensive expertise and research into the drivers behind bitcoin as the pre-eminent digital currency; investing long, short and trading, in order to produce outstanding returns for our investors.
Founded in 1999, Global Advisors principals have never wavered from their initial commitment and open-mindedness in the adoption and application of new and recognised technologies in order to benefit and improve trading efficiency whilst rationalising operational risks.
Supported by a team of first-rate talent, the development of this robust infrastructure ensures a seamless delivery of performance throughout the trading cycle.
With clients and fiduciary interests being paramount, our pioneering automated trading and reporting systems minimise human errors. Orders are despatched electronically from our trading management software, which constantly focuses on best execution and reconciles trades automatically at administrator level.
This hands-on, technology-oriented approach formed the basis for the launch the first bitcoin investment strategy in the world.
Global Advisors (Jersey) Limited delivers a wealth of experience across different asset classes and market conditions.
Being the first to apply professional investment management principles to the bitcoin as an asset class undoubtedly gives us a competitive advantage.
Factors such as market activity, news flow, new market entrants, regulatory developments, and technical developments on the cryptocurrency network are constantly monitored by us so that we can maintain an up-to-the-minute understanding and knowledge of the marketplace and then act accordingly.
Despite the absence of credit ratings or ISDAs, we have learnt how to evaluate and test the strength of active counterparties. As part of our routine operations we conduct random due diligence on them, to ensure they preserve the same exacting standards we demand.
