DDA Quantitative Solutions

Disciplined, rules-based investing for efficient and sustainable returns

Quant Solutions

The Quantitative Solutions Team is the latest addition to Deutsche Digital Assets and brings trading technology expertise, specialized in quantitative strategies and execution with dedicated infrastructure for the cryptocurrency market. We believe that a systematic approach to investing, using quantitative techniques and leveraging the latest academic insights, will generate attractive and persistent returns relative to traditional discretionary management. All executives have extensive experience from traditional financial markets with a broad set of alpha-seeking investment strategies adapted to crypto assets, especially with volatile markets. The team will supervise the deployment and distribution of quantitative strategies while providing tailor-made solutions for institutional and qualified professional investors.


DDA Absolute Return Multi Strategy

The DDA Absolute Return Multi Strategy is designed to generate returns regardless of market direction. The investment objective is to capture both upside and downside moves while reducing volatility and drawdowns, therefore delivering sustainable risk- adjusted returns in bull and bear markets.

DDA Smart Beta Diversified Strategy

The DDA Smart Beta Diversified Strategy is benchmarked over Bitcoin and designed to provide a global market exposure with improved diversification across a rather large universe of crypto assets. The investment objective is to enhance returns by capturing consistent Alpha over the underlying core market, while reducing overall risk compared to traditional capitalization-weighted indices.
