— A crypto-oriented trading firm

 

Agga Capital is a rapidly growing proprietary trading firm focused on digital assets.

Blockchain and cryptocurrencies have revolutionized investment, technology and human interaction. They open up a huge set of opportunities and brand new global market. At Agga, we believe in the power of digital assets and we create value for our shareholders through quantitative trading.

 

We have developed a robust trading system designed to thrive in this new ecosystem. At it’s center, we have our optimisation engine that applies various methods to historical and actual market data. This allows us to be ahead of the market and maneuver the volatile landscape of digital assets without emotional or behavioural biases.

 

Moreover, our returns are not directly proportional to the performance of these asset classes. Through active management we are not reliant on an asset simply increasing in value over time. Instead, we develop strategies that seek an edge through a mixture of long and short-term market patterns. This allows us to be adaptive to the ebbs and flows of the digital asset markets.
