ICONOMI welcomes blockchain luminaries as Digital Asset Array Managers
ICONOMI, a digital asset management platform, has roped in blockchain and investment luminaries William Mougayar, Arnold Sternberg, and Kenny Hearn in its series of Digital Asset Array (DAA) managers.
The announcement comes one year after ICONOMI’s record-setting ICO conclusion and the official creation of the funded enterprise.
Since the opening of registrations for the platform in August, over 24,000 users have registered, depositing $101.6 million USD in digital assets. On release of the platform, ICONOMI introduced Columbus Capital as one of the first announced DAA managers, managing Columbus Capital Blockchain Index (BLX), a DAA representing a majority of the total market capitalization of all digital assets, and Columbus Capital Pinta (CCP), an actively managed, high-performance DAA. To date, almost $10 million USD has been invested in BLX since its launch.
“Today we welcome the highest calibre investors in the world of blockchain to join us and manage the first cadre of DAAs. The carefully chosen group was selected from a pool of 150 applicants from all over the world, each of whom exceeded the most rigorous criteria, showcased deep knowledge and foresight in their proposed investment policies, demonstrated an understanding of optimal portfolio structures, and came armed with strong track records to substantiate their theoretical expertise. The introduction of DAA managers will further our mission to build a bridge between the old and the new economy,” said ICONOMI Co-Founder and CEO Tim M. Zagar.
William Mougayar is a prominent, long-time advisor to organizations such as the Ethereum Foundation and Coin Center. He currently serves as General Partner at Virtual Capital Ventures (VcapV), a boutique-style, early-stage technology venture capital firm focused on decentralized peer-to-peer technologies and applications. Mougayar also serves as Senior Advisor to Cofound.it, the leading platform for training the world’s most promising blockchain startups.
“It is a privilege to join ICONOMI as one of the first twelve new DAA managers joining Columbus Capital. Those of us leading the vanguard will begin to bridge the gap between the traditional financial world and the crypto-asset space. The ICONOMI platform uniquely allows the creation of value from blockchain, professionalizing the world’s fastest growing industry by attracting talent and interest from the best of the institutional and tech worlds,” said Mougayar.
Joining Mougayar as ICONOMI DAA managers are Arnold Sternberg, Managing Director of Cosmic Capital Holding GmbH, and Kenny Hearn, Director of Asymmetry Asset Management.
Arnold Sternberg has vast financial experience, working previously with companies such as Goldman Sachs and the Allianz Group. A serial entrepreneur, Arnold co-founded ProFounders, Kammerlander Sternberg & Cie, Vermögensverwaltung GmbH, and Aeris CAPITAL AG (now Calibrium AG). A longstanding member of the financial community, Kenny Hearn has worked previously with companies such as Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Barnard Jacobs Mellett, and Coronation Capital.
