At the base of every solid, lasting building you will find strong foundations. In the process of building a business, the approach taken should be similar, and within our model you will find just that. Strong foundations, solid infrastructure, sound process; built to last, and built to grow.
As highlighted in the article detailing the experiences of our team, we have incredible experience in multiple sectors when it comes to investment, and this experience not only provided the knowledge to build our strategies, but our infrastructure and processes too.
A Disciplined Approach is Key
The seasoned trader or investor knows only too well the ramifications of allowing emotion to factor into decision making; whilst there may be projects and start-ups out there that have an impact somewhere close to the heart, maintaining objectivity is crucial in these circumstances.
It is for this reason, when opportunities are identified, all will undergo the same stringent research, assessment and due diligence, and must meet a specific set of predetermined criteria to be considered for investment. While we all have our causes of interest and passions, to allow this to cloud judgement in anyway would not only be detrimental to us, but also our partner projects, investors and entire business model. Yes our, mission is to enable blockchain development, but not at the risk of our trusted network.
Regulation Creates Trust
As we are al well aware, in these early years of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, the space has been largely unregulated, unfortunately creating ample opportunity for nefarious activity. As is happening across the globe now — including here at Maitri Capital — regulations are taking hold and regulatory bodies are creating guidelines for entities in the space to conduct business.
For us, this is a very positive development, and coming under the FCA should be seen as a huge reason for every party we cooperate with to rest assured. Financial governing bodies are built to protect, and should be greeted with satisfaction by the industry.
Processes are Transferable
While our team here is composed of a combination of both traditional and decentralised finance experience, there is only one of those industries that has long-standing, proven processes in place.
The fact that the aforementioned regulatory bodies are expanding to protect the digital asset space now too, means these same processes used diligently for a long time now in traditional markets can, and will, make this same transition.
The blockchain industry is of course different in many ways from the traditional finance, investment and asset management sectors, but there are many similarities. We don’t, and shouldn’t expect the regulations to be replicated, but as a sound and proven benchmark to work from and optimise to fit the needs of the space, this is a necessary next step, and one we are proud to have taken.
