Miami's Seven Seven Six Launches $177 Million Crypto Token Fund

A digital assets-focused venture capital firm led by Reddit’s co-founder is reportedly planning on raising $177 million for a new fund that will likely invest in early-stage Web3 startups, plus related cryptocurrencies. 

Seven Seven Six (776), run by Alexis Ohanian, started fundraising relatively recently, according to The Information.
Following the likes of Sequoia and Bessemer Venture Partners, 776 has registered as an investment adviser with the SEC. The new fund, Kryptós, plans to commence operations in October.

The latest fund charges investors a 2.5% management fee — above the industry average of 2% or so. 
The venture capital firm currently has 56 portfolio companies, including Yuga Labs — the creators behind the exclusive non-fungible token (NFT) collection Bored Ape Yacht Club and QuickNode, blockchain API and node infrastructure startup. It currently has $904 million of gross assets, according to regulatory filings.....

Ever Wonder What It Is Like To Work For Citadel?

Day in the life, Pam Chang, analyst, Citadel Global Equities

From EFC

6.30am CT. I wake up and check my phone to go through the news and see what happened overnight in the markets and with the stocks I cover. I also have a quick look at Bloomberg chats and sell-side research to see if I have any communications from my colleagues in our global offices, or whether any new viewpoints on my stocks have emerged while I was sleeping.

7.30am. I’m usually in the office. I live downtown and am about a 15-minute subway ride away. When I arrive, I continue running through any new information on the companies I cover. I’m looking for things like corporate announcements or news of mergers and acquisitions. This can be the best and worst time of my work day – best because you never know what the market will throw at you, and it can be very exciting to interpret implications from news of the day or macro themes. I say it’s the worst because sometimes you have to rip up your daily schedule and reprioritize depending on what’s taking place.
As a small and mid-cap financials analyst who mostly covers banks in the US and Canada, I am deep in the weeds in roughly 40 different stocks and provide back-up coverage on another 20. I have quite a sizable number of shares to follow, but after five years I know the stocks in my universe very well.

7.45am. We have our morning meeting with the whole financials team. The financials trader will give us some color on how the stocks are trading, and on some days of the week our macroeconomist attends too and give us some extra color on the broader economic situation....

The Investing Paradigm Has Changed: Here Is The Macro View

From Forbes

Ten years ago, commodity prices were extremely high, and companies were investing enormous sums of money to increase the production of those commodities. As they say in the commodity markets, the cure for high prices is high prices. New supply flooded the market, and commodity prices declined until they hit rock bottom in March 2020. Since then, commodity prices have begun to rise, but they haven’t risen enough or for long enough for companies to invest in new production. Unless investment and production in commodities grow rapidly, the next ten years will likely represent a decade of rising commodity prices, which will influence consumer demand, corporate profit margins, and interest rates.

Inflation has enjoyed a long slumber until 2021, with the average inflation rate generally remaining below 2% per annum for a decade until 2021.

Today, inflation is at a 40-year high, and there are compelling reasons to expect that high rates of inflation are likely to persist. Among those reasons are the deglobalization and increasing commodity price trends discussed above. In a high inflation rate environment, interest rates are likely to rise, and P/E ratios are likely to fall, much like they did in the 1970s, with important implications for the stock market, the bond market, and the real estate market....
