Investment Philosophy

BXB Capital applies a comprehensive strategy, relying on the fundamental principle of investing: diversification. We strive for consistent returns, while reducing capital risk exposure.

Diversification is the backbone of the financial world. It’s not a secret, it’s just a fundamental principle that guides our every action. We apply this not only to our investment approach, but also our company structure. We believe in building a well balanced team, with a diverse skill set that gives us the ability to evaluate the investment opportunities presented.

Investing with intelligence is our premier guiding principle. It comes from understanding cost of capital, the risk free rate, and the average market return. A structured approach with a portfolio balanced between proprietary trading, investing and venture building is our recipe for stable growth and success.

Block by Block Capital Fund I

The primary object of our fund is to achieve a pure alpha return within the global cryptocurrency and traditional markets through a long-short investment strategy. We are not an index fund and we are not content with passively riding the market up- and down-swings.

The fund leverages multiple global exchanges and OTC trading, but primarily focuses on the American and Asian Pacific markets. The global nature of the team gives us access to a greater breadth and scope of the entire market, with additional benefits of global arbitrage access.

Our in-house strategies are derived from the team’s experience, history and proven track record in developing and executing proprietary trading algorithms in the securities and commodities markets. To adapt to the cryptocurrency markets, we apply a combination of what would be considered fundamental, quantitative and technical analysis. Our technical analysis, based primarily on price movement, is similar to what’s traditionally used on financial securities, such as currencies or commodities, yet reflective of the intricacies of the cryptocurrency industry.
