ICONOMI introduces Columbus Capital as first asset management partner for blockchain-based assets

Digital asset management platform ICONOMI has introduced London-based investment management firm Columbus Capital as its first asset management partner to maintain and grow funds comprised entirely of blockchain-based assets.

The partnership is aimed at bridging the ‘old’ and ‘new’ economies, thereby revolutionising the multibillion dollar fund management industry. According to the official release, ICONOMI co-founder Jani Valjavec and one of Europe’s top fund managers, Igor Erker, formerly of Numerica Partners and Alta Funds, will spearhead Columbus Capital. Valjavec will serve as a Senior Advisor to Columbus Capital.

ICONOMI will continue to focus on platform development and offering the software tools for blockchain-focused fund managers, while Columbus Capital will independently manage three initial funds

  • A comprehensive Blockchain Index (BLX)
  • Pinta (CCP), a closed-end, high performance fund focusing on novel digital assets
  • Blockchain.ONE, a fund soon to be listed on traditional, internationally regulated exchanges

Each of these funds originated as the first Digital Asset Arrays (DAAs) built on ICONOMI’s software, the release said.

“We are managing one of the world’s most exciting funds: the Columbus Capital Pinta, previously known as ICNP, which invests exclusively in the highest potential token sales. Our extraordinary team has unrivaled knowledge of the cryptocurrency industry. With our proprietary due diligence processes, we will focus on highly profitable investment opportunities while obtaining access to the best possible deals. With Blockchain Index, previously known as ICNX, we have created a best-in-breed onramp for all investors to invest in the entire blockchain industry ― today the fastest growing sector in the world,” Igor Erker, Columbus Capital CEO said.

Named after Christopher Columbus’ fastest ship, Pinta is currently under Columbus Capital’s purview and has rapidly become the world’s largest and highest performing fund focusing on ICOs, with over $45 million in assets under management. Blockchain Index is a lower risk and less volatile fund that serves as a best-in-class approximation of the entire blockchain industry. BLX was seeded with $3 million USD.

“ICONOMI has developed the world’s leading software platform to manage and form digital asset arrays. We are forming what we believe will be the foundational element of the new economy. Eventually dozens or even hundreds of DAAs will operate on the ICONOMI platform. To maintain our focus on developing this critical platform, ICONOMI has spun out our two pre-announced DAAs, INCP and ICNX, to the capable and highly experienced management team at Columbus Capital. As a result, Columbus Capital will be ICONOMI’s first official third-party customer. We have seen increased investor demand for the investment alternatives, and we believe this is an opportune time to present this new vehicle. Columbus Capital highlights our commitment to the market demands and our ambition to continue to broaden investment opportunities in all areas,” Valjavec said.
