Today, Arrington Capital announced that Bhavik Patel has joined the firm, bringing decades of derivatives, trading and risk management experience to complement the expanding team at Arrington Capital. Mr. Patel was previously Chief Product Officer and Head of Derivatives Business at BitMEX, an early crypto exchange and derivative trading platform, where he assisted the founding team at an early stage on the design of what would be a leading flagship perpetual swap product.
“I look forward to bringing my financial markets experience to Arrington Capital, a digital asset management and venture firm, where we will grow and expand the liquid side of the organization,” said Mr. Patel. “I am equally as thrilled to utilize my background in designing sophisticated financial products in the digital asset space, to support our 200+ portfolio companies that are at the forefront of building financial infrastructure of the future.”
“As the crypto markets mature and converge with traditional markets, it is critical to bring a mature and sophisticated perspective to our trading strategy. Representing just one pillar of how we deliver value to our investors, our liquidity and trading business will be elevated to a higher degree with Bhavik’s leadership and institutional knowledge,” said Michael Arrington, founder of Arrington Capital. “We are honored to have Bhavik join us and we look forward to new strategies and offerings he will bring to our investors.”
Mr. Patel’s prior experience also includes UBS’s APAC Derivatives Strategist, where he was responsible for generating and publishing cross-asset tactical and systematic trade ideas. He was the APAC touchpoint for content driven dialogue with a wide variety of clients (volatility funds, long-short investors, tail funds).
Prior to UBS in Hong Kong, Bhavik had a number of trading and risk management roles in London at a mix of European investment banks. He has a Masters in Mathematics from the University of Oxford.
