Security

Apollo Capital is committed to follow custody processes that minimise the associated risks at all times given the investment strategies. The majority of crypto assets are stored offline using best industry practices. For these funds, encrypted wallets are stored securely offline and redundantly in multiple locations. The encrypted wallets require multiple signatures by key stakeholders to be unlocked and for funds to be moved. Apollo Capital has engaged Eric Wall, a third party security expert, to verify our processes for secure storage of crypto assets. Eric's impressive CV can be viewed here.

 

Crypto as Part of A Portfolio

 

Bitcoin and other crypto assets have a low correlation to other assets (see table below). This means that they are broadly moving independent of more traditional assets classes such as stocks, bonds and commodities. Despite having high volatility, including crypto assets in a portfolio could result in diversification benefits for the investor. I.e. including a limited amount of crypto assets in a portfolio could potentially decrease the overall volatility of the portfolio. The following graph illustrates a global diversified portfolio with 60% global equities and 40% US bonds vs. a portfolio with 59% global equities and 39% US bonds and 2% Bitcoin both using weekly rebalancing. The portfolio with 2% Bitcoin generated a higher return with lower volatility during this period.
