SEC filing shows that Guggenheim’s new fund may seek exposure to Bitcoin. Guggenheim Investments is a global investment firm. They have filed with the United States Securities and Exchange for a new fund.
According to Tuesday’s filing, the new Guggenheim active allocation fund will be a diverse closed-end management investment fund. Moreover, the fund may seek investment exposure to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin through cash-settled derivatives instruments.
The filing notes that such instruments include exchange-traded futures investment tools offering exposure to BTC and other cryptocurrencies. Moreover, the process is done through direct investment or indirect exposure such as derivative contracts.
The company also stated that the fund’s exposure to Crypto might result in substantial losses to the fund. Moreover, it cited several risks associated with the industry. They also said that cryptocurrency is a new technological innovation with a bit of history.
Hence, Bitcoin is a highly speculative asset. Moreover, Bitcoin’s future regulatory actions or policies limited. Thus, the value of the fund’s indirect investment in cryptocurrency and ability to exchange a cryptocurrency will be minor.
According to the document Scott Minerd, Guggenheim’s Chief Investment Officer and Anne Bookwalter Walsh assistant CIO, Steve Brown, Managing Director, and Adam Bloch Director will be responsible for managing the fund’s portfolio.
