Institutional access to the cryptoeconomy
Why AKJ Token?
AKJ Crypto is reinventing the enterprise model. We are using AKJ Token to help professional investors “get off zero” with managed exposure to crypto. AKJ Token:
- 01. provides diversified exposure to the cryptoeconomy, through the top hedge funds on the AKJ Crypto platform
- 02. pays 25% of net revenues from the AKJ Crypto platform, in perpetuity
- 03. benefits from top-tier fund managers holding the token for both its investment and its platform utility attributes
- 04. offers participation in the appreciation of the platform fund of funds, managed by specialist
- 05. fuels a platform that is already complete, in market, and acquiring customers, and
- 06. leverages a regulated, award-winning fund platform with a well-established global brand.
AKJ Crypto is operated by AK Jensen Group Limited. The group and its subsidiaries, established in 1995, are owned by shareholders who, combined, have more than US$18 billion in assets under management. The group serves hedge fund and institutional clients in 35 countries around the world.
How it works
Neal Mitra, CEO of AKJ Crypto, talks to Nick Fitzpatrick, Group Editor, Funds Europe, about how investors could access crypto assets in a regulated environment and what AKJ Crypto itself does to help with infrastructure.
