The Willow Crypto SMA
It can be challenging to successfully navigate the dynamic and constantly evolving world of crypto and digital assets. Being a nascent technology and a new asset class comes with the potential for great possibility. But in a world plagued by information asymmetry, where both depth and breadth of understanding varies widely from one party to the next, the landscape can seem increasingly complex.
Our management team has been active in the cryptocurrency space for the past several years, observing, studying, participating, and interacting with smart contracts and developer communities to gain deeper insight and understanding to help differentiate between what is a legitimate use case and what is vaporware. Pairing this with our decades of traditional investment management puts us in a unique position combining proven and balanced due diligence, research, and risk management methods with cutting- edge emerging technology. We firmly believe blockchain technology will reshape the world as we know it over the coming decades.

The Willow Crypto SMA Investment Philosophy & Strategy
While bitcoin has paved the way for digital assets, proving a concept and defining an entirely new asset class, digital assets are not just about bitcoin. We believe it is only proper to diversify in this space to capture the full potential unlocked by this disruptive technology. We liken today to the internet build out of the 1990s. Simply put, we believe there will not be one winner, but many. The crypto and digital asset landscape is diverse and complex in what real world problems and inefficiencies it aims to solve.
Our approach to investing in the cryptocurrency and digital assets realm revolves around three core tenets:
- Mindshare: We invest where the developers and builders are actually building, and community is forming.
- Blockchain Infrastructure: We invest in projects that solve challenges such as scaling, interoperability, and security, who are actively making the cryptocurrency space more resilient, robust, and useful.
- Useful Use-Cases: We invest in projects bringing new efficiencies to market, solving real-world problems, disintermediating legacy systems, and creating a fairer, more connected, and just world.
While the above reflects where our current focus lies, the landscape is constantly shifting and growing so these themes may develop and change over time.
Just as the internet was a blackhole in its early days, few really grasped the potential for impact it would have to reshape our world and the ways in which we transact and interact as a global society. So too now do we find ourselves in a situation where a new technology has the potential to disrupt and spur innovation to change the world we live in.
