What is D-Central?

Frequently asked Questions

We work with university incubator programmes, private equity investors and other VC firms to help identify our investments. There is no fixed shape of an investment but we will ensure we have a diverse portfolio of start-ups in different stages from idea stage to revenue earning.
It used to take companies 7-12 years to really establish themselves in the market. In today’s environment most companies can be accelerated within 3-5 years. We do not want to keep investors money any longer than we need to. The aim is to return capital back to investors within 5 years.
D-Central Capital takes a 2% management fee (rolled up into annual operating costs) which is lower than industry standards of 2.5 – 3%. This pays the teams a modest salary to operate the fund over the funds lifetime. We need to ensure our investments are all growing at pace so running the fund is a full time job.
We believe that we should be rewarded on performance rather than for simply raising funds. If we take tokens up front we would be being paid before we have done anything! D-Central Capital will take a 15% carry of the profit on fund exit, much lower than the industry standard of 20%. This way we are incentivised on the funds performance.
Running the fund is important and we have a very experienced Chief Finance Officer to help with this supported by advisors with a finance background. However, the success of the fund will be determined by how well our technology investments grow. This is why we have focused on a team that have a background in this area and have the market contacts to help drive growth quickly.
The bulk of our operating costs are for our regulated partners to operate the fund to ensure the safety and correct management of investors money. Over 85% of our operating costs are for ensuing we mirror financial regulation. Tokenised Funds will not be able to operate without regulation within the next 12 months so this is vital to running a secure, future proofed fund.
