Zachary Cefaratti

Founder & CEO Dalma Capital


Zachary Cefaratti is Chief Executive Officer and principal founder of Dalma Capital Management Limited.

His efforts at Dalma Capital have been dedicated to seeking alpha-generating portfolio managers and strategies and providing an accelerator platform on which they can maximize their alpha realization and capture.

He has also pioneered bridging the gap between traditional financial services practices and the crypto-economy - applying systematic hedge fund strategies (momentum, mean reversion, relative value arbitrage, statistical arbitrage) to secondary crypto-asset markets as well as applying methods of tokenization to traditional assets and investing in protocols.

Zachary has over 15 years' professional experience in the financial services industry, having initially worked his way through his studies at Franklin University Switzerland, Foster School of Business at the University of Washington, London School of Economics and the University of Pennsylvania while operating independent mortgage brokerage, merchant and insurance businesses. He holds a dual bachelor’s degree in International Finance and Banking and International Business Management.

Zachary began his search for Alpha at age 7 when he began trading bonds and equities in an effort to grow assets he earned as a childhood film and television SAG/AFTRA actor. Throughout his career and education, he has been an active member of the investment community – he founded the Franklin University Investment Club and spearheaded the formation of the AIMA Middle East Executive Committee, representing the Alternative Investment Management Association in the MENA Region.

He was the principal organizer of the AIMA Middle East Hedge Fund Investors Summit and went on to found AIM Summit, the largest gathering of Hedge Fund, Private Equity, Venture Capital and Private Debt professionals in the Middle East. He regularly speaks at global industry events and has been a regular Market View contributor to the Khaleej Times.
