Metalpha Invests in NextGen Digital Venture Limited, Strengthening Institutional Investor Access to Digital Assets

HONG KONG, Jan. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Metalpha Technology Holding Limited (Nasdaq: MATH) (the “Company” or “Metalpha”), a global crypto-based wealth management company, has invested in NextGen Digital Venture Limited (“NextGen”), strengthening the existing business partnership that provides institutional investors compliant investment channels for exposure to digital assets.

In April 2023, Metalpha joined forces with NextGen to launch Next Generation Fund I (the “NextGen Fund”), a structured investment channel focusing on Grayscale Investments LLC’s suite of products. Since then, the fund has outperformed Bitcoins annualized return by more than 35% as of Dec.31, 2023, and consequently gained wide recognition from investors in both traditional finance and digital assets space.

Metalpha provides bespoke hedging solutions and is one of Asias largest crypto derivatives solutions providers. The Company works closely with traditional financial institutions including family offices, investment funds, and crypto mining companies. The investment comes at a time when the Company is optimistic about the future performance of the NextGen Fund, and the investment announced today will provide NextGen with additional management support.

Working with the brilliant team at NextGen has been delightful. The launch of the NextGen Fund marked the first step by both sides to roll out compliant yet rewarding products together. We look forward to building a more robust partnership going forward,” said Adrian Wang, President and Director of Metalpha Technology Holding Ltd.

We extend our sincere gratitude to Metalpha for their pivotal partnership, which has been instrumental in meeting the sophisticated demands of institutional cryptocurrency wealth management. Leveraging Hong Kong Type 9 license, NextGen is committed to providing secure and compliant cryptocurrency investment opportunities, with a steadfast focus on achieving alpha returns,” said Jason Huang, Founding Partner of NextGen Digital Venture Limited.

As a holder of Type 4 (advising on securities) and Type 9 (asset management) licenses, the Company has recently obtained an uplift to its existing Type 4 license from the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong.
