Our Story

Viking Harbour Investment Solutions Limited, an affiliate of C8 Technologies is an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and an Ireland Private Company Limited by Shares (LTD). C8 Technologies, a fintech company serving global investors, was founded in 2017 by Mattias Eriksson and Ebrahim Kasenally. The two co-founders were previously partners and senior executives at BlueCrest Capital Management, one of the largest global alternative investment management firms.
Through its affiliation with C8 Technologies, Viking Harbour provides asset management services as a sub-adviser to third-party investment advisers, who then offer such sub-adviser management services to their advisory clients. In addition, the firm will enter into model provider agreements with registered investment advisers and broker-dealers in which it will provide its model portfolios and updates to those who engage the firm for such services. Viking Harbour’s portfolio management services are generally offered through third-party investment advisers on either a sub-advised basis or a consulting arrangement as a model provider.

This proactive approach allows investors to strategically offset capital gains by selling underperforming investments, thereby minimizing tax liabilities. By capitalizing on market fluctuations, Tax Loss Harvesting not only helps preserve capital but also enhances after-tax returns.

This sophisticated technique empowers investors to navigate market volatility intelligently, turning temporary losses into valuable tax advantages.

Assessing and designing an investment portfolio in an uncertain world requires a resilient and well thought out approach. Diversification benefits are enhanced if the portfolio builder can harness high performing portfolio constituents.

We have chosen a US Balanced Equity and Bond index as the benchmark for simplicity and clarity. The choice of benchmark can be very important and the most appropriate benchmark is frequently unique to a client. A full allocation to equities is likely to be incompatible with a well-balanced portfolio so be mindful of volatility and drawdowns when comparing the annualised performance below.
