Reasons to invest into Cryptoassets

The Future of Finance

During the last few years, it has become clear that cryptoassets are not just a passing fad. By now they form a new asset class that investors cannot afford to ignore. With major corporations, banks and even nations jumping on the bandwagon, the question is not whether the relevance of cryptoassets grows – the question is just how fast this will happen.

Return Potential

Im Blockchain-Umfeld wird ein Wert im jeweiligen System durch kryptographisch abgesicherte Coins oder Tokens repräsentiert. Der Inhaber dieser Tokens kann die jeweilige Blockchain bzw. deren Anwendungen nutzen. Tokens können gehandelt werden, die Preisfindung erfolgt über große internationale Online-Handelsplätze. Durch den Erwerb von Tokens können Investoren direkt an der Wertschöpfung des jeweiligen Blockchain-Systems und den darauf aufbauenden Anwendungen partizipieren.

Diversification

The correlation of cryptoassets with other asset classes is low, making them a great tool to diversify portfolios. This has been demonstrated during the recent market turmoil, when cryptoassets have exhibited positive returns when other markets experienced double digit declines. All rational investors should consider adding cryptoassets to their portfolios to reap the asset class’s diversification benefits.

Crypto assets:An attractivenew asset class

Cryptographically secured coins or tokens are called cryptoassets. They are ideal as an addition to portfolios of professional investors as they offer a unique combination of positive features*:

DIVERSIFICATION

  • Low correlation with established asset classes
  • Suitable for the diversification of portfolios

More importantinformation

Cryptoassets are a young and very dynamic asset class. The value of shares in the Postera Fund – Crypto I may, therefore, be subject to considerable fluctuations. The investment in crypto assets is highly speculative and risky and can result in the total loss of invested capital. Investments are only suitable for experienced investors who fully understand these risks. Investors interested in this asset class should conduct their own research and, if necessary, seek independent legal, financial and, if necessary, tax advice. A detailed description of the risks associated with an investment in Postera Fund – Crypto I and its investing activities can be found in the current fund prospectus.

With high return potential, low correlation and high liquidity, crypto assets are highly attractive alternative investments. However, in addition to their very high volatility, cryptoassets pose a number of other challenges for investors: Given that the asset class is still young, there is a lack of qualified analysts for cryptoassets and qualified staff for the management of crypto portfolios. Operational aspects – in particular, trading and custody of cryptoassets – are complex and require sound technical knowledge as well as investment in dedicated infrastructure and processes.

The Postera Fund – Crypto I is an Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) in the legal form of a trust pursuant to the Act on the Management of Alternative Investment Funds dated December 19, 2012, which implements the European AIFM Directive into Liechtenstein law. It is thus the first EU regulated fund that predominantly invests in cryptoassets. The fund is designed for professional investors seeking access to the asset class but do not want to bear the costs and risks of direct crypto investments. The fund enables investors to gain exposure to a diversified and actively managed crypto portfolio. Moreover, the fund is set up in a tax-efficient structure. The fund’s weekly liquidity allows investors to manage their exposure to the asset class dynamically.

  • The fund invests in “blue chip” coins and tokens, which usually exceed a market capitalization of $1 billion.
  • The investment universe of the fund currently consists of eight coins and tokens and is being continuously expanded.
  • The portfolio of the fund is actively managed. As a result, opportunities in the market can be exploited and risks can be managed.
  • Investment decisions are made on the basis of sound research. Among other things, the research is based on a proprietary scoring algorithm that takes into account an evaluation of the use case, the technical implementation, the regulatory environment and short-term market sentiment.
