Whilst investing in cryptocurrencies and digital assets, including Smart Beta Bitcoin Fund, involves considerable risks, Zerocap managers deploy proprietary models for the Smart Beta Bitcoin Fund that rebalance the high volatility of Bitcoin to lower levels, in line with risk profiles of equity portfolios. The objective of Smart Beta Bitcoin is to reduce and balance risk while actually improving risk adjusted returns, all while providing exposure to Bitcoin. Zerocap’s Chief Investment Officer Jonathan de Wet said,

"Our approach has paid off, demonstrating that there is a place for this product in well designed portfolios. Smart Beta allows us to maintain an amazing risk-adjusted return profile, but without the volatility".

Zerocap’s Head of Trading Toby Chapple said "Based on traditional investment banking techniques developed to cure hedge fund risk profiles, Smart Beta Bitcoin uses a proprietary and rigorous methodology to redistribute risk regularly between Bitcoin and a cash equivalent digital asset to accurately control the swings in the price of Bitcoin to a predetermined level. The product allows investors to control the downside risk of their investments whilst having all the statistical benefits that the asset class offers to a portfolio approach to investing."
