PSDN’s range of investments covers many subsectors of the cannabis industry and is dynamically managed to give more consideration or less consideration to different countries, subsectors, or individual companies, as are strategically necessary.
PSDN will try its best to capitalize and benefit from the different market opportunities by leveraging the situation to maximize profits.
Emily Paxhia, co-founder and Managing Director of Poseidon, and Portfolio Manager of PSDN said that Poseidon was one of the first investment firms dedicated to cannabis investments, steering the complex and evolving cannabis industry with expertise, to help companies grow and thrive from startups to eventually become public companies.
According to her, the firm’s track record points to its in-depth knowledge in the field and its commitment to understanding the needs of the companies in which it invests.

He said that his firm was excited to partner with an established and experienced team like Poseidon to bring their institutional portfolio management approach into the mainstream investment infrastructure.
He added that active ETFs in the field of cannabis continued to become successful with investors who were trying to find managers with a proven track record in the fast-growing and dynamic cannabis industry.
