Rocks and Surf

Finance 2.0

Blockchain and distributed ledger currencies, have led to an unprecedented surge in financial innovation:
New currencies. New approaches. New products.

Highly-complex financial products, previously considered niche, can now be provided efficiently, to anyone.


Crypto currencies and mechanisms, do pose some challenges to both investors and businesses:

  • The complexity involved, is beyond the capability of most companies and investors.
  • Regulatory issues grow in inportance and to engage with them, requires specialised expertise and effort.
  • Security from both external and internal parties, is a critical factor in all cryptocurrency related activities, and is a key focus for all of our products and services.

Our Solution

We combine world-class financial expertise, with secure automated services. By continuous monitoring of market activities, and automated execution, we protect customer assets, while being ready to exploit emerging opportunities. This enables us to bring financial products to a wide market, which were previously considered nichem rare and complex.

As a result, we can gain yields significantly higher than those of legacy financial products, with high potential for inflation protection.


Products and Services

Our service portfolio is continuously evolving, in response to market trends and customer feedback. We comply with all applicable regulations, in the relevant jurisdictions. We provide our Limited Partners with comprehensive audit, governance and independent reports, to ensure their awareness and support.



Secure Asset Management

Security is our priority, for all activities. We combine state of the art Hardware Security Modules, with offline and cold wallets, multisig authentication and multi-factor account access. Often overlooked, we support key real-life scenarios such as corporate signing authority policies, account ownership transfer, escrow and inheritance.


Secure Currency Exchange

We enable our customers to pledge and retrieve assets in both fiat and crypto-currency forms. Due to our economies of scope and scale, for the bulk transactions we engage in, we can often obtain optimal conversion rates, and lower fees. We also trace the history of all transaction parties and their funds, to avoid dealing with stolen assets, or nefarious partners.



Our platform is designed to identify arbitrage opportunities, on many levels (quantitative, execution and technical). Our company is built to continually review and apply new harvesting strategies. Successful strategies will be offered to limited partners via virtual funds, allowing partners to decide themselves on the level of risk/performance and on attributes such as Sharia-compliance, ESG concerns or any other valid criteria.


Staking & Lending

Holders of crypto-currencies are interested in gaining yield from these assets, without risking their loss, and without the complexities involved in self-management. Our approach is to offer such partners, access to managed staking and lending services, as both provider and as consumer. Short and longer term durations are both supported.


Bespoke Analysis & Advice

Due to our expert engagement, continual analysis and our platform's capabilities, we generate unique insights on market activities and trends. As part of our customer engagement, we not only generate regular reports on such analysis, but we can respond with customise briefs, on specific issues of Limited Partner concern.


Emerging DeFi Instruments

Every actual and emerging crypto-asset related mechanism, will be evaluated for usage. Should an external service prove promising, we will extend out platform support to interact with it, negotiating wholesale rates when appropriate. Additionally, we wish to provide our own mechanisms, such as Smart Contract based Automated Cross Swaps, providing crypto-asset holders with safe, short-term liquidity, and protection from volatility.


Our team combines highly-experienced, high-level financial experts, with technical and business administration veterans.
