• We currently offer 3 publicly distributed index tracker products: 1) BTC/USD tracker 2) BTC/CHF hedged tracker 3) SEBAX® Crypto Asset Select Index tracker
Apart from one of the safest custody solution, our Bitcoin trackers have significantly lower fees than comparable products. Due to the low management fee and the highly efficient execution via SEBA trading desk, the product has one of the lowest tracking errors in the market, hence mirrors the movement of Bitcoin particularly well.
The BTC/CHF (hedged) tracker is the world's first currency-hedged Bitcoin tracker. The USD/CHF currency risk is hedged via FX forwards on a regular basis to largely eliminate the effects of USD/CHF movements for the tracker investor
SEBAX is a 2nd generation crypto index that employs a unique weighting methodology. Most cryptocurrency indices simply weight coins according to their market capitalization (1st generation). Market cap weighting is not efficient in crypto-currency markets as you end up with a high concentration of coins (currently roughly 70% Bitcoin, 20% Ethereum, 10% others). SEBAX employs – in addition to market cap weighting – a risk optimization approach which weights cryptocurrencies in inverse proportion to their risk (“risk parity”). Maximum exposure to a coin is capped at 50%. The SEBAX index aims to outperform the broad crypto-market over a full market cycle which it has done in the past (in terms of product after costs since end of 2019 and in terms of index since end of 2015).
