About North Rock Digital

The Partnership is primarily a fundamental thesis driven Digital Assets hedge fund. The Partnership’s main strategy is to employ deep fundamental research and hold long term positions. The Partnership strives to find the best performing assets in the crypto space while also providing a level of downside protection. Additionally, the Partnership has two smaller strategies to diversify risk exposure: (1) a portion of the capital is allocated to systematic and opportunistic strategies; and (2) a final portion is allocated to early-stage private investments. The private investments focus on innovative areas that will help bridge the gap between web 3.0 and the everyday world.
