Lightning Capital is a Digital asset manager

Our team combines deep crypto knowledge and sophisticated portfolio management skills to create value for our investors in a lower risk investment approach to digital assets. Our research and portfolio management approach incorporates robust fundamental analysis, on-chain analytics and proprietary methodology to take advantage of inefficiencies in this nascent asset class. Institutions, Endowments, family offices and individual accredited investors turn to Lightning Capital for digital asset management.


The General Partners spent the last two decades scaling companies, innovating cutting edge technology across data and capital markets, giving back to the next generation by teaching, and building an incredible network for the crypto ecosystem.  The Partners all met as members of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) over a decade ago.

The combined expertise in technology, capital markets and investing in digital assets uniquely qualified them to launch Lightning Capital with four investment strategies spanning the risk-reward spectrum of exposure to digital assets.  

Since the public launch of the first fund in January 2020, the General Partners have outperformed and have built a foundation of trust with audited financials, fund administration, regulatory compliance and relationships. They believe in a conservative approach to investing by analyzing each protocol prior to investing and adhering to a disciplined approach across all four strategies; the Liquid Token Fund, the Systematic Arbitrage and Yield Fund, Venture Fund and Lightning Energy Company.



When we launched in 2020 we built a foundation of trust that included trusted partners to; ensure Audited Financials (Marcum LLC), abide by strict Regulatory Governance (Cole-Frieman & Mallon) and Accurate and Timely external Fund Administration (NAV Fund Administration). Trust is integral to everything we do.

Due diligence

The General Partners engage in rigorous due diligence on every investment. We have avoided any exchanges that don’t pass our due diligence process and continue to be vigilant in our conservative approach. We avoided exposure to FTX, Blockfi, Genesis, Voyager and  TerraLuna.


We are active participants in building a valuable community across Developers, Capital Markets, Venture Capital, YPO and Tiger 21. By giving as much as we can to this network, we are engaged with communities that provide insights into many token projects.


We invest in the areas of blockchain technology and infrastructure that continues to disrupt including; Energy Innovation for Proof of Work Mining, Immutability of distributed ledger technology (DLT), Control of Data (encryption, ownership, immutability), and development and conversion from Web2 to Web3.
