Berlin — Berlin-based crypto advi­sory F5 Crypto Capi­tal has laun­ched a new open-ended German crypto fund for insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors. Through its subsi­diary F5 Crypto Manage­ment GmbH, quali­fied inves­tors are enab­led to make invest­ments in the crypto market. — A YPOG team led by part­ner Jens Kretz­schmann provi­ded compre­hen­sive legal and tax advice to F5 Crypto Capital.

The new F5 Crypto Fonds 1 InvAG m.v.K. for semi-profes­­sio­nal and profes­sio­nal inves­tors is accep­ting subscrip­ti­ons with imme­diate effect and aims to achieve high diver­si­fi­ca­tion through a targe­ted selec­tion of crypto stocks. Funda­men­tal analy­ses of the analy­sis team, with many years of expe­ri­ence in the crypto market, provide the basis of the invest­ment stra­tegy of the new fund. A signi­fi­cant portion of the fund also pursues an index-based invest­ment stra­tegy. Thus, the over­all stra­tegy covers broad parts of the crypto market, such as tokens from the Decen­tra­li­zed Finance (DeFi) sector, meta­verse appli­ca­ti­ons and Web 3.0 projects. The open fund struc­ture repres­ents a parti­cu­lar advan­tage for inves­tors. F5 Crypto Fund 1 offers weekly subscrip­tion and redemp­tion, with share units viewa­ble in the bank cust­ody account by ISIN.

“We are very plea­sed to be invol­ved in the estab­lish­ment of this, for the German crypto market, signi­fi­cant fund and to be able to support again with our exper­tise in the field of fund struc­tu­ring in the imple­men­ta­tion of inno­va­tive ideas. A German open-ended crypto fund product in the form of an InvAG m.v.K. has been miss­ing on the market so far,” said part­ner Jens Kretzschmann.
