Diversified exposure to a digital asset megatrend

Decentralised finance – DeFi for short – is setting a new stage for institutional investment as the crypto markets develop beyond Bitcoin and ether creating fundamentally new ecosystems and use cases. Decentralized exchanges, lending and payment services or smart contracts are amongst others shaping the future of finance.

Investment opportunities in  thesenew real-world uses-cases and projects in DeFi continue to grow accordingly. However, a DeFi investment that at the same time manages security and technology risks, lowers volatility and offers diversification remains a challenge for the individual investor.

Sygnum is making investment in the DeFi megatrend easy and secure with a new smart beta product. The Sygnum DeFi+ Core investment strategy provides pure exposure to the trend and addresses the related challenges, without requiring specialist research into the technology and economics of individual tokens.

The strategy offers a rules-based investment approach across a diversified set of DeFi governance tokens, which aim to bring returns through token price appreciation over a mid- to long-term investment horizon.

The rules-based selection criteria consider historic metrics, like capital invested, as well as forward-looking metrics like ecosystem growth and tech innovation.

The typical investment profile includes those who wish to broaden their crypto asset exposure beyond bitcoin and ether, invest in DeFi with a diversified basket of tokens and access alternative return opportunities. Investment access is possible with small ticket sizes, investment in just one product.

The Sygnum DeFi+ Core investment strategy is an actively managed certificate, available for investment by Swiss qualified Sygnum clients or via your bank or brokerage based on its Swiss ISIN.
