Independent Capital Blockchain Fund started in 2018 in Singapore as a boutique investment management firm. Since that, we have constantly been evolving and enhancing our effectiveness through our product range.
In 2020 we shifted our focus to the new trend that can potentially disrupt all aspects of the multi-trillion-dollar financial service industry. The latest trend is called Decentralized Finance (DeFi).
Now ICBF takes positions in the most liquid DeFi tokens and trades them, with asset growth being the model’s first objective and capital preservation being the second. This means that investment in ICBF can provide outstanding performance delivered with a more stable performance profile than investment in a DeFi index or a buy and hold strategy of several selected tokens.
ICBF: Classic Fund
in the new crypto market
The cryptocurrency market is rapidly gaining momentum. What started as an exotic hobby among a small circle of people has become an economic phenomenon with a market capitalization of hundreds of billions of dollars. The number of exchanges and services continues to grow daily, while governments have yet to create unified regulatory standards for the cryptocurrency market.
A profitability unsurpassable via traditional assets is driving more people to cryptocurrencies to turn a profit. But the first problem that potential investors inevitably face is a lack of services and a massive shortage of qualified personnel.
Many funds and asset management companies initially manage to stay afloat on the wave of positive trends, but sink as soon as the market takes a downward turn. To protect investments and still profit in a falling market, enthusiasm is not enough – high-level competencies are essential.
ICBF is an investment fund that invests in high-yield blockchain instruments. Our team of traders and analysts works under the leadership of professional managers, all of whom have many years of experience in the Russian and international stock markets and in the management of traditional investment products. ICBF’s extensive expertise in investing and managing assets is the fund’s major advantage on the cryptocurrency market.
The technologies and methods that we use have proven their effectiveness in the market of traditional investments. Drawing on the high standards and rules of the stock market, ICBF has created a clear and reliable service for investing in cryptoassets. We firmly believe that this service will help our clients grow their capital and make ICBF a market leader.
