It’s not your imagination: these days you’re hearing about the Blockchain a lot more. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are an expression of the blockchain, and an asset class completely uncorrelated to other investments. So by investing in them, you gain the security of a diversified portfolio – and the opportunity for huge gains from this new and thriving sector of the economy.
To simplify Blockchain investing, we’ve created the Cryptos Fund, which tracks the CCi30Ⓡ, an index that covers the top 30 cryptocurrencies in the market. A turnkey solution for investors, the CCi30Ⓡ is comprised of currencies representing 90% of the global cryptocurrency market capitalization, meaning there is plenty of exposure to up-and-coming currencies with huge upside potential.
Because it is comprised of multiple components, an index tends to be less vulnerable to price volatility than an individual currency.
Historically, an index tends to have more attractive returns (i.e., a higher Sharpe ratio) than an individual currency. And it has been proven that passive index trackers historically achieve higher returns than actively managed portfolios in all asset classes.
Because the fund passively tracks the CCi30Ⓡ index, transaction costs and management fees are kept to a minimum. Cryptos’ annual management fee – 0.99% – makes it the least expensive fund in the sector. And of course no performance fees are charged.
Most investors don’t want to or are not allowed to buy and hold Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies directly. The Cryptos Fund handles the purchase, sale and maintenance of assets.
If you’d like to enjoy the benefits of investing in cryptocurrencies, here are the products that we offer:
Directly tracks the CCi30Ⓡ Index of the 30 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. The portfolio is rebalanced monthly and its composition is recomputed quarterly, following the rules of the CCi30Ⓡ Index. Class A boasts a low management fee (0.99%), no performance fees, and requires a minimum investment of US$100,000. Redemptions can also be processed in Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies. This product is reserved to non-US investors.
Cryptos Fund (US) is our USA-based entity that mirrors the activity of Class A. It is available to US and non-US qualified investors. The minimum investment in this vehicle is $10,000.
Another way to invest is via a certificate listed on a stock exchange. The certificate invests in the Cryptos Fund so provides exposure to the same strategy but allows participation by investors or entities (e.g. certain institutional investors) who are not permitted or simply prefer not to buy the fund directly. The certificate is like any listed security in terms of its liquidity and transferability.
For those interested in using cryptocurrencies for business transactions, we offer fee-based consulting services to help you get started.
Cryptocurrencies have many attractive properties – too many, in fact, to recount in detail here. Suffice to say they are:
No one needs to know your true identity
They’re virtual – use them anywhere
Only the holder of a cryptocurrency’s private key can spend that currency
Most cryptocurrencies have a limit on the quantity to be created
at its essence, that is what a fund is. The brains generate ideas, the technology implements those ideas and assures the necessary security.
At Cryptos Fund, we are taking advantage of brainpower from both internal and external sources. Of course we have our own team’s brains – more on them in a moment – but, as an index-tracker, we are also drawing on the index’s mental horsepower, as it is the index that sets the formula for which cryptocurrencies to buy in which amounts, and when and how to rebalance its holdings.
The Cryptos Fund is run by three key individuals who are responsible for strategy, implementation and security:
Professor of Mathematics at Temple University and Regius Professor at St. Andrews University. Rivin is one of the world’s most respected mathematicians. Recognized for his skills at the intersection of mathematics and finance, Professor Rivin is responsible for the research and theoretical underpinnings of the Cryptos Fund.
Early adopter of e-currencies, experienced investor and trader, and internationally recognized provider of legal and financial advisory services. Scevola is responsible for asset management and fund organization. As the investor n.1 in the fund, he has “skin in the game”.
Global security expert. Major, Marines Corps, Bronze Star medal with Valor device; formerly the military aide to the U.S. president charged with carrying the nuclear “football,” Zorn now consults with governments and corporations on cybersecurity and threat identification and neutralization. He is responsible for all security aspects of the fund.
A fund devoted to cryptocurrencies requires maximum strength, banking-level security. Partner Jeff Zorn has used his vast knowledge and experience to provide the fund with an airtight security platform including:
Currencies are reserved on secure offline servers, not connected to the Internet and thus secured against hacking and theft.
Purpose-built, tamper-proof wallets designed specifically to hold digital currencies. These hardware wallets hold private keys and digital signatures in secure, offline devices.
As you might suspect, having gone to the trouble to create special wallets and store them offline, we don’t go around telling anyone the location of those physical devices. Jeff Zorn knows the locations but good luck trying to pry that information out of him. He could tell you – but then he’d have to … you know.
You’re not the only one who’s noticed the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Cryptos Fund has engaged in detailed business continuity and disaster recovery planning. We can’t say what’s going to happen to the world but if worst comes to worse, at least our fund – and your investment – will be safe.
These measures represent a level of security far greater than any investor realistically could achieve individually – and it is absolutely the level of security Cryptos Fund demands.
