IDX Digital Assets Launches First Risk-Managed Bitcoin & Ethereum Trusts

PHOENIX, Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — IDX Digital Assets, a quantitative asset manager in the crypto and digital asset space, announces the launch of a family of risk-managed trusts for the crypto-assets space. The IDX Risk-Managed Bitcoin Trust and the IDX Risk-Managed Ethereum Trust are the first ever investment trusts designed to provide a risk-managed exposure to crypto assets with the ability to go 100% to cash.

Investors and advisors are expressing a strong appetite for crypto exposure, but desire a risk-managed approach.

“The excitement around the rapid development of blockchain technologies, mixed with the realization of accommodative monetary stimulus policies, increasing geo-political tensions, and materializing concerns over inflation growth, all have investors seeking exposure to asset classes such as digital assets. Specifically, investors and advisors are expressing a strong appetite for digital assets exposure, but desire a risk-managed approach that focuses on mitigating the inherent volatility and drawdowns common to the emerging asset class; this is what IDX seeks to provide,” says Andrew Swan, co-founder and CEO of IDX.

IDX also launched the first ever Risk-Managed Crypto Indices priced by S&P Dow Jones in June 2021. These indices are the IDX Risk-Managed Bitcoin Index and the IDX Risk-Managed Ethereum Index, respectively. IDX is also scheduled to launch the first ever risk-weighted DeFi index with S&P in August 2021.

Ben McMillan, co-founder and CIO of IDX said, “We’ve had a great relationship with S&P Dow Jones Indices over the years and are thrilled to be their first client to use them to calculate our risk-managed crypto indices.  Particularly as this asset class gains further adoption, we continue to see increased demand for risk-managed solutions to this space. S&P Dow Jones’ ability to provide real-time calculation of our indices provides a huge leap forward in our ability to deliver products in this space.”
