Kenetic bucks Crypto Market Trend with 77% YTD Portfolio Return
Partnering with VS Asia to offer Pro Investors access to Crypto Funds
HONG KONG, Nov 16, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Kenetic, a blockchain investment and advisory firm based in Hong Kong, affirmed that its proprietary investment portfolio recorded year-to-date returns of 77% as of October 31, against a backdrop of major losses in the cryptocurrency markets; Bitcoin has fallen over 50 percent in 2018 and the overall crypto market is down around 65%.
Kenetic's proprietary investment portfolio is comprised of its best ideas that have undergone thorough due diligence by its experienced investment team. Its alpha-generating strategies are largely focused on early stage investments, catalyst driven events and macro themes, complemented by prudent risk management and proprietary in-house trading tools.
