Technology and innovation have always been driving principles of NAV, so being at the forefront of servicing innovative products like cryptocurrencies is a natural fit for us.

NAV Fund Administration (NAV), a global leader in hedge fund and private equity administration, continues to see growth in their cryptocurrency hedge fund administration business and has developed a module in their proprietary technology platform to specifically support cryptocurrency funds. “Technology and innovation have always been driving principles of NAV, so being at the forefront of servicing innovative products like cryptocurrencies is a natural fit for us,” says Nav Gupta, CEO at NAV.

To date, NAV has built API connectivity with more than 70 cryptocurrency exchanges in order to independently retrieve transaction and pricing data directly from the exchange. They have also established relationships with several qualified cryptocurrency custodians, and have implemented controls to address the complexities for verifying ownership on both public and private blockchains, and hot and cold wallets. “This is a complex market that presents a number of operational and compliance challenges that are new to the hedge fund industry,” said Ravi Gupta, Account Manager at NAV. “We have invested a considerable amount of time and resources developing a service model and technology solution capable of overcoming these challenges.”

NAV already has several clients investing in cryptocurrencies or ICOs, and a significant number of upcoming launches and prospective clients in the pipeline. While they have made significant progress in solving the complexities of this market, there is more work to do. “This is still a developing market that is changing every day. We recognize that to be successful in servicing cryptocurrency funds, we must adapt to those changes and continue to invest in research and technology,” said Gupta.
