Lvna is a leading digital asset investment manager that focuses on institutional and professional individual investors.

We believe in an open and borderless economy, in which society functions with open-sourced and decentralized programmable money and applications.

An economy that is available to everyone in the world (open), regardless of nationality (borderless), through verifiable code and contracts (open-sourced) and without the need of trusted intermediaries (decentralized).

Our investment approach combines rigorous fundamental research with relentless focus on active portfolio and risk management in order to take advantage asymmetrical risk/reward opportunities.

Our world-class team of investors, engineers and risk managers understand both financial markets and cryptonetworks.

Why Digital Assets?

When digital assets are added to a well-balanced portfolio comprised of traditional assets, like stocks, bonds, real estate and gold, a higher rate of return may be realized at all levels of risk.

Asymmetrical Risk-Return Profile

Similar to venture capital investments, digital assets have a positive asymmetrical risk-return profile (high Sharpe ratios), in which potential returns exceed potential total losses by a wide margin (assuming no leverage).

Uncorrelated Assets

Based on historical data, digital assets have low to negative Pearson correlations versus traditional asset classes, improving the overall profile of a balanced portfolio.
