Crypto Index Fund Bitwise Delivers 45% Return in First Two Months
These days more players on Wall Street are adopting bitcoin as a new vehicle that can potentially deliver amazing growth opportunities, and traditional investors are reaping the benefits. An index fund operated by Bitwise, for example, has delivered a 45% return in its first two months.
Cryptocurrencies Deliver Performance
Its CEO, Hunter Horsley, told news.Bitcoin.com: 'The fund has accepted several hundred investors since our launch, ranging from doctors and professors and engineers to family offices and billionaires. Because of regulations on private funds, we’re currently only able to serve accredited investors with this vehicle (similar to many ICOs such as Blockstack and Filecoin). But our goal is to be able to serve anyone.' To be considered an accredited investor in the US, an individual must have a net worth of at least $1,000,000, excluding the value of their primary residence.
Especially important for diversified portfolio investors, the HOLD 10 Index has very low correlations to traditional asset classes. (Back-tested over the trailing 12 months: 10.8% correlation to the S&P500, -5.9% to the Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index, and -1.6% to gold.) As of its February 1 re-balance, the fund holds BTC, ETH, BCH, XRP, DASH, LTC, XMR, EOS, XLM, and NEO.
From ETFs to Crypto
Spencer Bogart, partner at Blockchain Capital which is an investor in Bitwise, commented: 'As crypto-assets come into the mainstream, investors increasingly want access to rules-based beta options. Matt's expertise in indexing, exchange-traded products, and institutional research complements the team's expertise in software, and will help Bitwise continue to be a best-in- class partner to investors.'
