Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Cryptocurrency hedge fund ARK36, founded by an all-Danish team led by Ulrik K. Lykke, is bolstering its Cyprus-based investment team with the hiring of Loukas Lagoudis as Executive Director and Socrates Minas as Investor Relations Manager. The new hires will work directly with ARK36’s Executive Director, Ulrik Lykke, out of Larnaca in Cyprus.

Loukas Lagoudis

Loukas Lagoudis has previously worked at Argo Capital Management, GAM Investments, Millennium Investments and HSBC in various roles focused on the portfolio construction of tailor-made solutions and systematic strategies. He also developed macroeconomic models at Credit Suisse in his role as assistant vice president between September 2015 and August 2017.

“ARK36 is an impressive business. It’s one of the fastest-growing EU regulated digital assets hedge funds available for professional and institutional investors, so it should come as no surprise that I’m looking forward to joining the team,” Lagoudis comments on joining ARK36.

Socrates Minas is joining ARK36 from cryptocurrency trading and research platform DXone, where he was responsible for its sales and marketing strategy. Before joining DXone, Minas worked as a Partnerships Manager at think-tank “the Institute for The Future” with the team behind Decentralized, a conference on blockchain and digital currencies. Minas will help prospective and existing clients make informed investment decisions, and will also be responsible for the firm’s client onboarding process.

“Loukas and Socrates are both highly experienced individuals, and they’re each bringing unique and valuable skills to our investment team.”

“Loukas and Socrates are both highly experienced individuals, and they’re each bringing unique and valuable skills to our investment team,” comments ARK36’s Executive Director, Ulrik Lykke. “They will play a pivotal role in ARK36’s evolution, particularly when it comes to engaging with global institutional investors, family offices, and wealth management companies.”

ARK36, regulated as an Alternative Investment Fund with Limited Number of Persons (AIFLNP) by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, was launched in October of last year to deliver risk-adjusted exposure to crypto-assets for professional investors. The Danish founders Ulrik Lykke and Mikkel Mөrch (pictured), supported by Jacob Skaaning and Marck Bertelsen, employ both a systematic and fundamental discretionary approach to invest in the broader crypto market.
