What we make
We design Structured Financial Products
Virgil Alternative Investments Uk Ltd designs and manufactures Structured Financial Products with alternative asset classes as the underlying.
Structured finance products allow for access to disruptive assets and exotic investment strategies from a regulated vehicle.
Many of these asset classes would be inaccessible to Financial Institutions and Qualified Investors, often because they are not compliant with traditional policies.
In other cases, this inaccessibility is a result of the difficulty in terms of the technical evaluation or conducting due diligence in the asset classes (as in the case of digital assets) as they are not fully regulated.
However, VAI UK has the team, skills and experience to overcome these challenges and to support Financial Institutions and Qualified Investors in the creation of structured products in line with the needs of compliance officers and risk managers.
These instruments can be listed on regulated markets or purchased in private placement according to the needs of the investor.
Structured Financial Products allow access to investment with smaller ticket sizes than would be required by many Hedge Funds or Investment Funds. At the same time, Hedge Funds and Investment Funds benefit from the ability to communicate with a single investor the “Structured Financial Product” with greater ease in relations rather than many.
VAI UK also owns its own line of AMCs (Actively Managed Certificates) with underlying disruptive assets, digital and DeFi strategies, creating a bridge between the TradFi world (Traditional Finance), and DeFi (Decentralized Finance) products giving institutions the ability to access this disruptive asset class.
