One River Digital prepares to go deep
Brevan Howard Asset Management, a $20 billion hedge fund management company that is the partial owner of One River Digital, announced in April that it has allocated 1.5% of its funds to the leading cryptocurrency. In March, One River hired former Securities and Exchange Commission boss Jay Clayton as a cryptocurrency advisor. Before embarking on his job as Wall Street’s top cop, Clayton served as Goldman’s legal counsel. One River Asset Management was presented with a subpoena by Ripple Labs, a company that was put on trial by Clayton in the final days of his term.
