      The AMC aims to track the performance of the DeFi sector by investing in the tokens of the ten most established DeFi projects based on transparent quantitative selection criteria. 

      Investment approach

      Token selection and weighting follows Sygnum’s rule-based criteria. The tokens are ranked based on their market capitalisation, liquidity, user adoption and smart contract risk.  

      Only tokens where reliable, high-quality custody and execution are available are selected for the portfolio. 

      The top ten ranked tokens are selected and the product tracks the performance of the selected basket of tokens.

      Quarterly rebalancing ensures that the portfolio stays invested in the most relevant tokens over time.

      Risk/return profile

      The product aims to achieve significant returns through capital appreciation of its token investments. Due to the directional market exposure of the strategy the product is highly volatility with significant risk of drawdowns.
