Investment Objective

The Iconic CMBI10 Momentum Index Fund seeks to track the performance of the CMBI10 Short-Term Momentum Index, which includes the top 10 crypto assets by market capitalization and the US Dollar (USD). Additionally, the fund strives to optimize passive returns by depositing coins into staking and interest-bearing accounts with reputable counterparties.

Coin Metrics 10 Short-Term Momentum Index aim to reflect the performance of the momentum factor for the Parent Index, CMBI10 Index. Constituents for momentum indexes are selected based on eligibility criteria and their 10 year expected future market capitalization, as defined in the Index methodology. The weight of each crypto asset within the index is dynamic and based on the momentum scores of the asset during the momentum observation period. CMBI Momentum Indexes are not necessarily fully invested in crypto asset markets. Indexes can allocate up to 100% of assets to cash if there is no momentum in any constituent asset.

Investment Strategy

The fund employs a “passive management” investment strategy which tracks the performance of the CMBI10 Momentum Index, a benchmark for the performance of a momentum strategy in the crypto asset market. The fund attempts to replicate the target index by investing its capital in the crypto assets or fiat currencies that comprise the index using the same weighting. Additionally, the fund strives to optimize returns by depositing coins into staking and interest-bearing accounts with reputable counterparties, when available.
The index does not support any form of “anonymous transaction” crypto assets or other potentially non-compliant assets. The index rebalances its holdings weekly and reconstitutes its portfolio monthly.
