Leonidas Cryptocurrency Fund


The Leonidas Cryptocurrency Fund trades a basket of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether (as well as exchange traded derivatives on cryptocurrencies). The fund uses a blend of discretionary algorithmic strategies and sophisticated risk management techniques developed by George Michalopoulos, who is a former Citadel energy portfolio manager and University of Chicago Phi Beta Kappa graduate.


Protection is a key element in generating returns – robust risk management is at the core of this protection. We believe that associated costs are more than compensated for in times of market stress, and the strategy generates good positive returns in rising markets.

Risk is actively managed through strict risk budget limits at portfolio and individual metals levels, with drawdown limits.
