The following is a summary of the risks of investing. Please note that this list is not exhaustive, and has been provided as an indication of the factors that can affect the value of your investments.
Investors in cryptocurrencies may be exposed to a high level of risk because the prices of cryptocurrencies can rise and fall significantly in a short period of time. This could arise due to the speculations on the technologies that govern cryptocurrencies or with general market or economic conditions.
Short selling strategies can provide an investor with an opportunity to manage volatility and enhance performance in declining or volatile markets. Short selling cryptocurrencies involves risk because there is no assurance that securities will sufficiently decline in value during the period of the short sale to offset the interest paid by the investor and make a profit for the investor. Cryptocurrencies sold short may instead increase in value. The investor may also experience difficulties repurchasing and returning the borrowed securities. The borrowing agent from whom the investor has borrowed securities may go bankrupt and the investor may lose the collateral it has deposited with the borrowing agent.
The risk of decline in the purchasing power of your savings due to a general rise in prices.
Liquidity refers to the speed and ease with which an asset can be sold and converted into cash. Most cryptocurrencies can be sold easily and at a fair price. In highly volatile markets, certain cryptocurrencies may become less liquid, which means they cannot be sold as quickly or easily. Some cryptocurrencies may be illiquid because of legal restrictions, the nature of the investment, or certain other features such as guarantees or a lack of buyers interested in the particular security or market. Difficulty in selling cryptocurrencies may result in a loss or reduced return for a Client.
The use of leverage may not be suitable for all investors. Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of cryptocurrencies involves greater risk than using cash resources only. If an investor borrows money to purchase cryptocurrencies, the investor’s responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest as required by the terms of the loan remains the same even if the value of the cryptocurrencies purchased declines.
Our portfolios are basket of cryptocurrencies that closely resemble index funds: Our portfolio may fail to accurately track the market segment or index that underlies its investment objective; Portfolio may not be “actively” managed. Such portfolios would not necessarily sell a cryptocurrency because the token’s issuer was in financial trouble, unless the cryptocurrency is removed from the exchange. As a result, the performance of the portfolio may be lower than the performance of an actively managed fund; there is no assurance that the requirements of the exchange necessary to maintain the listing of tokens in the portfolio will continue to be met or remain unchanged.
