Job Appointments | May 13, 2019 By:

Cypto trading platform Caspian has appointed Lewis Fellas to its board of strategic advisors.

Caspian, a joint venture between Hong Kong-based blockchain firm Kenetic and OEMS global trading platform Tora, is a full-stack crypto asset management platform tying together the biggest crypto exchanges in a single interface. It provides institutional grade trade order, execution, compliance and risk management features to meet investors’ regulatory and operational needs.

Lewis Fellas is the Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of Bletchley Park Asset Management, which provides a conduit to the emerging digital asset class for High Net Worth individuals and institutional investors. Before launching Bletchley Park Asset Management in 2017, Fellas has over 19 years of investment, research and trading experience, and was a portfolio manager at Harvard University’s $39.2 billion endowment fund. Fellas has also worked as a portfolio manager at flagship Hedge Funds, Segantii Capital Management and Deephaven Capital Management, having previously spent time as a trader at Lehman Brothers and JPMorgan Chase.

Robert Dykes, CEO of Caspian, said that Fellas has multi-decade experience in trading and investment, and they’re thrilled to welcome him to their team of advisors.

“We are excited to have built the leading institutional crypto trading platform and adding someone of Lewis’ calibre as an advisor, with his wealth of experience, will most certainly add to our trajectory,” said Dykes. “I am particularly looking forward to Lewis’ insight into the needs of hedge funds as we work together to drive the business forward and provide firms with easier access to the cryptocurrency asset class.”

Fellas said that prior to Caspian’s launch, a proper institutional crypto trading and risk management solution did not exist.

“Caspian has removed many of the barriers to entry for institutions and I’m confident they will continue to play a significant role in the expansion of the cryptocurrency asset class,” Fellas said. “I’m thrilled to be joining Caspian as an advisor and look forward to working closely with Robert and his talented team.”
