Why Index Investing?

Index investing provides efficient, transparent and low-cost exposure to cryptocurrencies.

Market Exposure

Index funds aim to deliver the performance of the cryptocurrency market.

Transparency

Holdings in index funds are publicly available.

Diversification

Index products are made up of a broad portfolio of individual assets and can help lessen the risk that comes with investing in a single cryptocurrency.

Cost-effectiveness

Index products offer a cost-effective route to many markets which would otherwise be expensive to access.

Benefits of Equal Weight

Equal weight is a "Smart Beta" investment strategy that gives the same weight to each coin in an index fund

  • Simple To Understand - Equal weight tracks the performance of a set number (15) cryptocurrencies with equal holding in each, which makes them a straightforward investment.
  • Successful Formula - Equal-weighted index funds systematically buy low and sell high keeping an equal holding across the top 15 coins, thereby adhering to the fundamental rules of successful long term investing.
  • Relative Performance - Equal weight beat market cap over 57% of the one year periods, on a rolling monthly basis since the funds started. Moreover the funds outperformed over 84% of the five year periods and 100% of the ten year periods.
  • Globally smart beta is the fastest growing segment of the asset management industry as a whole.

White Paper

Read the White Paper

IX15 leverages cryptocurrencies’ low correlation to stocks and bonds, and is purpose built to diversify investments from traditional asset classes heavily linked to general economic fundamentals - a true hedge against inevitable market cyclicality and impending economic turmoil.

With IX15, investors hold the top 15 cryptocurrencies ranked by market cap, re-balanced every 30 days. This means, whatever happens to any individual cryptocurrency, IX15 holders will always hold the top 15 upon each rebalancing.

In this white paper, we introduce the rationale behind an equal weighted cryptocurrency index fund.

Fund Performance Comparison

The graph below compares the performance of IX15, BTC, S&P, and CRIX, for hypothetical funds each with an initial $1000 investment.

Cryptocurrency Index (CRIX) is a benchmark for the cryptocurrency market.
