Quantitative-Discretionary Long-Short Digital Asset Strategy

Investment Manager:     

PIVOT Fintech holds a Capital Markets Services License (CMS100806) and is regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.


Novum Alpha Global Opportunity Digital Asset Fund manages a quantitative-discretionary long-short strategy that represents years of experience trading opaque digital asset markets while leveraging cutting edge quantitative models.


Annualized Return


Sharpe Ratio











Returns are derived from the weighted average of actual managed accounts live-traded on digital asset exchange Binance, denominated in USDT (the “Managed Accounts”). Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The principal value and return of an investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance reflected does not include the Fund’s fees and had it been included, the Fund’s return would have been lower.

The Managed Accounts were reorganized into the Fund on 2 July 2021, the date upon which the Fund was registered. Novum Alpha administered the Managed Accounts using investment policies, objectives, guidelines and restrictions that are in all material respects equivalent to those of the Fund. However, the Managed Accounts were not a registered mutual fund and thus were not subject to the same investment restrictions as the Fund. If they had been, the Managed Account’s performance may have been lower. Please see the full set of offering documents for risk disclosure.

Our Investment Process

Idea Generation

Using a mosaic approach, disparate data points are collated from public and private sources and supplied to in-house data science tools to identify opportunities. Research infrastructure scans blockchains, price data, order books, social media, and news.

Digital Asset Selection

Homing in on dislocations and inefficiencies, quantitative analysis identifies opportunities and sets up appropriate long and/or short entry points as well as caters for trade duration and sizing.

Risk Management

Portfolio monitoring systems manage portfolio risk 24/7 to prevent trade concentration and manage exposure.
Trades are automatically sized according to strength of conviction and trade frequency optimized to ensure minimal slippage.

Automated Execution

Automated, algorithmic trading programs trade multiple short to mid- term strategies 24/7 to capture digital asset price movements using rules-based, signal-generating logic, ensuring stable performance and low instrument correlation.

Alpha Generation

-0.494 alpha
0.323 beta
  • In-depth research and data analytics ensures performance above a general basket of digital assets to generate alpha.
  • Active hedging reduces beta relative to the often-volatile digital asset markets.

  • Alpha is a historical number of how the investment performed relative to the benchmark, in this case the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index.
  • Beta is an indication of the volatility of Novum Alpha Global Opportunity Digital Asset Fund relative to the digital asset market, taken here to be represented by the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index. A beta of less than 1 implies a lower volatility than the market.

Portfolio Diversifier

The potential diversification benefits of adding Novum Alpha Global Opportunity Digital Asset Fund to an existing portfolio include:

  • Negative correlation with equities, bonds and gold
  • Low correlation with Bitcoin and broad digital asset index indicating minimal digital asset portfolio holdings overlap

From August 2017 to June 2022 Novum Alpha Global
Opportunity Digital Asset Fund
Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index 0.68
Bitcoin Buy & Hold 0.36
S&P 500 0.05
iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF 0.04

Correlation is a statistical measure of how two assets move in relation to each other. A correlation of +1 implies that two assets move in unison, whereas a correlation of -1 implies that move exactly opposite to each other. A correlation of 0 means that the two assets move randomly in relation to each other. Please see the “Glossary of Terms” for more information.
