Crypto Hedge Fund Neural Capital Closes After Losing Half Its Money

Neural Capital, a hedge fund that traded cryptocurrency assets, has quietly shuttered. 

The fund’s managers, Arij “Ari” Nazir and Christopher Keshian, were new to the hedge fund industry and involved in more than one fund when they started Neural Capital.

Keshian told CoinDesk he has not kept in touch with Nazir since parting from Neural Capital. “Right now, I’m working on a project that is still very much under wraps,” said Keshian, declining to comment further.

Nazir did not respond to requests for comment.
