Tyr Capital launches long-only hybrid venture fund

by wrich

The fund delivers exposure to long-term returns of liquid tokens, pre-launched tokens and multi-stage venture capital equity. 

Tyr Capital, the leading digital asset focused investment manager, has announced the launch of its new fund, Tyr Capital Venture. 

Tyr Capital Venture SP is a discretionary hybrid venture capital fund offering investors exposure to long term returns across a portfolio of liquid tokens and illiquid digital assets (early-stage tokens and multi-stage venture capital equity) with a liquidity horizon of 1-3 years. 

The fund combines the team’s venture capital and liquid trading backgrounds to provide access to asymmetric upside investment in early-stage deal flow, while capturing broader beta exposure in the digital asset market. 

Portfolio construction is based on a research-intensive process. Tyr Capital selects teams building new blockchain protocols through its broad network. 

Tyr Capital’s flagship fund, Tyr Capital Arbitrage SP, has delivered a gross performance above 120% since its inception in 2019, and a Sharpe Ratio above 3. This news follows the announcement that Tyr Capital quadrupled its assets under management (AUM) in 2021. 

Ed Hindi, Chief Investment Officer at Tyr Capital Partners, said:

“The Venture fund is being launched at a time when institutions are keen to gain exposure to cryptoassets. The cryptocurrency market cap surpassed $2.5 trillion in 2021 – equivalent to a third of the market cap of gold. And is a trend we expect to continue. 

“Our investors have enjoyed the consistent returns our flagship fund has produced. However, we created this fund to serve the fast-growing appetite for outsized returns that long-term positions and venture capital equity offers. Crypto projects are evolving rapidly and are receiving a significant amount of capital giving them the tools to develop life changing products. The benefits of the technology are proven, and we are excited to help fund the coming generations of this rapidly-growing sector and give investors exposure to this opportunity.”
