DeFi Opportunities Performance Review Q3 2022 - Q1 2023

In our development phases, before launch of the product to the public, we have engaged in internal testing of the strategies we are intending to offer to Professional and institutional investors this year pending approval. Our testing was based on a total fund allocation of $1,000,000 on October 31st.

Alpha Observed

Despite a rocky Q4 for crypto asset markets and traditional assets alike, with Bitcoin (-1.50%), Ethereum (-9.28%), and the SP500 (-0.27%) declining over the observation period of 31st October 2022 and March 9th 2023, DeFi in particular stable-coin yields detached to offer strong alpha. With declining liquidity and increased volatility, trading through DEX providers generated above average yields for the period.

The DeFi Opportunities product had three core underlying assets in the period, USDDFRAX, USDD3CRV, and IBEURUSDC positions on

at 33%, 33% and 34% respectively. Using the max boost available to stakers on Curve. Yields were generated in principle underlying and in Curve protocol token $CRV. The fund between 31st October to 7th November engaged in Daily compounding, where we sold generated CRV in batches every 24 hours, and re-allocated this capital back into initial weights. From the 7th November to 20th February, we accumulated generated CRV to re-compound into the CRVCVXFRAX pool, which offers aggressive yields and the holding of CRV during this period also gives us directional market exposure during upswings in the market.

New Planned Allocations

Increased in exposures to CHF and EUR, to counter possible weakness in USD over the coming months with macro economic headwinds particularly in comparison to possible CHF performance during these periods as a 'safe-haven'

Increased exposure to DAI as decentralized providers have proven increased resiliency in stabilizing their Stable values, and our support for new stability mechanisms in MakerDAO.

Allocation of DAI on the AVAX chain, due to recent yield spikes and an ongoing trend towards growing utiliziation of Avalanche based Decentralised finance protocols will increase liquidity demand and lead to strong yields effective.
