Trovio Group launches a $35m DeFi Fund powered by Yield App
Trovio Group, one of Australia’s leading asset managers, has partnered up with Yield App, a digital wealth platform with $200 million under management, for the launch of a brand new crypto fund.
This $35 million fund, dubbed the Trovio DeFi Fund, offers wholesale investors the opportunity to diversify their investment through a yield-generating strategy within the DeFi (decentralized finance) ecosystem.
By combining Trovio Group’s asset management expertise with Yield App’s DeFi risk management experience, the Trovio DeFi Fund will be leveraging the DeFi strategy that powered Yield App return-generating platform and make it available to a wider audience of investors.
Groundbreaking Risk Model
Trovio DeFi Fund prioritizes capital preservation and uses proprietary sentiment analysis to shield the portfolio from market volatility. This proprietary risk model uses 135 measurable variables generated from historical data to analyze all aspects of risk exposure, including the four security assessment pillars: smart contract, platform, counterparty, and financial/credit risk.
Based on this model, the risk analysis system sends back a measurement that informs the management team of the total amount of liquidity in the lending pools, together with an alphabet rating from A to Z. This system’s purpose is to help decide whether or not the Trovio DeFi Fund should make an investment.
The Chief Investment Officer of Yield App, Lucas Kiely, stated that the new partnership will benefit wholesale investors with access to a tested DeFi strategy, one which has powered Yield App’s return-generating engine. Lucas further stated:
“The expertise of Yield App in the DeFi space combined with Trovio’s long and successful track record within the digital asset industry, makes this the best-placed team in the market to take advantage of the opportunities available in DeFi, while maintaining a strict focus on capital preservation throughout”,
he added, providing further context on the objectives behind this collaboration.
The CEO of Yield App, Tim Frost, was also keen on the partnership, stating that the team is proud to share its cutting-edge expertise and industry-leading risk model with Trovio. According to Tim, the collaboration is an unprecedented opportunity to explore synergies between the two businesses.
From Trovio Group’s side, CEO John Deane said:
“Trovio has spent the last five years building a market-leading asset management solution for digital native assets. Today we are excited to announce the launch of the Trovio DeFi Fund in partnership with Yield App, an institution that we have worked closely with during this period. Yield App brings a wealth of experience in managing risks in decentralized finance, and we look forward to continuing to grow this partnership, providing recognisable institutional investment products aligned with best-in-class risk management and governance processes, to our investors”.
