Separately, Paul Lang is joining Khelp as Head of Portfolio Construction & Risk and will be working on the investments team alongside Patrick O’Donnell, the firm’s Head of Research & Trading. Mr. Lang brings 13 years of experience constructing asset allocation strategies across traditional and digital assets and will be responsible for strategy design and execution across mandates.

“The explosive growth in crypto has created demand for digital asset advisory, education, and investment solutions,” according to Boomer Saraga, Co-Founder & CEO of Khelp. “As a team of digital asset natives, asset allocators, and risk managers, Khelp is well positioned to fulfill these market needs. We are excited to connect traditional investors with a growing menu of institutional-caliber, crypto investment products.”
Khelp is now offering clients tailored investment strategies that provide exposure to a variety of cryptocurrencies and blockchains in separately managed accounts. These digital asset portfolios provide both individual investors and investment advisors the ability to choose from a number of strategies, driven by individual investor suitability and risk tolerance.
Khelp is also on track to launch two Decentralized Finance (“DeFi”) hedge funds in 3Q22, the Mako and Dorsal Funds, which will provide accredited investors access to yield-focused strategies diversified across established blockchain networks and protocols. The Mako Fund is an actively managed total return product consisting of income and capital appreciation, embedding risk management into the portfolio construction process.

These funds will service investment advisors, institutions/family offices, and accredited investors.
Khelp provides professional digital asset management and advisory services, offering tailored cryptocurrency asset management with a focus on DeFi.
