Advised Funds

 

Units of the Fund are available under exemptions from the prospectus requirements in accordance with the National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus and Registration Exemptions and are, therefore, only available to qualified investors.

The Rivemont Crypto Fund, launched on December 14th, 2017, is aimed at qualified Canadian investors. It is currently the only actively managed crypto fund in Canada.

The Rivemont Crypto Fund offers the widest selection of cryptocurrencies within its portfolio composition. It is always looking to expand this selection following the regulator’s approval, so it can maximize its return opportunities.

Rivemont is registered as a portfolio manager with the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC), the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) and the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC).

Cryptocurrencies have enabled investors to achieve exceptional returns since their inception in 2010. The objective of the Fund is to take advantage of the development of blockchain technology by identifying the most promising cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are analyzed using a fundamental approach coupled with the application of trend following rules at the time of purchase and disposition.

The Rivemont Crypto Fund is aimed at investors with a good risk tolerance in search of a high potential return. This Fund is also ideal for any investor wishing to diversify their portfolio with an asset having a low correlation to traditional asset classes. The Fund can be included in registered (RRSP, TFSA) and locked-in accounts (LIRA).

 

While the answer to this question could fill a book, the short answer is that it is a purely electronic currency not created or regulated by any central authority. Basically, a cryptocurrency is a ledger containing all the transactions ever made using the coin. Instead of being held exclusively by a central authority such as a bank, the ledger, known as a “blockchain,” is distributed among all the actors in the network. It is fully public, immutable and protected by tight security.

In addition to decentralizing monetary exchanges, cryptocurrencies are much faster and more affordable than the use of the traditional banking system.

 

Although cryptocurrencies have had explosive returns since their inception, the market capitalization is just over 395 billion US dollars as of November 3rd, 2020. The good days of the industry are potentially yet to come. The Rivemont Crypto Fund aims to capitalize on this current opportunity in the market to maximize the return of its investors.

Although cryptocurrencies are risky and past performance never guarantees future returns, in the context described above, we believe that the return potential of an investment in certain cryptocurrencies is greater than that of more traditional funds. It is also a type of asset that is generally considered to be independent and uncorrelated to other asset classes in the market.

This surge led to over $235 million in short position liquidations. The increase follows renewed investor interest in newly approved Bitcoin ETFs, which saw nearly $1 billion in investments after weeks of outflows, spurred by reports of lower-than-expected inflation.

    Crypto Bulletin – Weeks 334-335
