By investing in stocks exposed to Bitcoin, the Fund will not necessarily or mechanically follow the price of Bitcoin itself, whether it is rising or

Risk Level

The level of risk of the fund mainly reflects the risk of the market in which the fund is invested and, as the case may be, the leveraging strategy or inverse performance of the index.

The capital initially invested does not benefit from any guarantee. The current level of risk does not indicate the future level of risk and may change over time. The lowest risk level is not equal to a risk-free investment.

The MELANION BTC EQUITIES UNIVERSE UCITS ETF have ongoing charges of 0.75%. These fees cover all expenses billed directly to the Fund, except for transaction costs. Transaction costs include intermediary costs (broker’s fees, etc.) and the turnover commission, if any, that might be charged by the Depositary.

The daily price and return of the Melanion Bitcoin Exposure Index are calculated and published by BITA GmbH, a leading index provider, with a strong focus on technology and infrastructure for
indexation and systematic investing.

The composition of the index includes companies that satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Companies listed at recognized North American and European exchanges, exhibiting the
    highest correlation and revenue exposure to Bitcoin.
  2. The companies that operate in segments of Crypto Asset Management and Trading,
    Crypto Banking and Services, Crypto Mining (including Hardware), and Blockchain
    Technology, or the companies that hold Cryptocurrency on their balance sheet as
    investments or for preservation of value.
  3. Minimum Average Daily Traded Value (ADTV) in the last month of USD 500,000
  4. In the case when, at a rebalancing event, due to the liquidity filter, it is not possible to
    maintain an eligible universe of more than 30 constituents, the liquidity threshold will
    be reduced to a value of USD 100.000 to ensure the viability of the index.
  5. Minimum Market Capitalization: USD 100 million.
  6. Trades at a recognised exchange in North America and Europe with strict listing
    requirements and policies.

The constituents follow a beta weighted methodology (a composite measure of the volatility of a
security (the share price) relative to a benchmark (the price of Bitcoin). For each constituent Beta coefficients are calculated as the covariance between the constituent weekly returns and the Bitcoin weekly returns divided by the variance of the Bitcoin weekly returns. Only constituents with positive betas are considered for index composition.

Except for extraordinary adjustments, the Index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly at the Close of Business (COB) on the 3rd Friday of March, June, September and December after the market closes.
The exact composition and the rules for reviewing the composition of the Index are available on the website: https://www.bitadata.com

Extraordinary events such as Merger, takeover bid, delisting or insolvency make the index adjustments necessary. The BITA Index Management Board (BIMB) may decide to substitute an index constituent with a candidate index constituent upon the occurrence of an extraordinary event as deemed by BIMB or according to the “BITA Corporate Actions Treatment Guide”. The successor index constituent shall be included in the index after the close of business day when an extraordinary event has been determined.
If a company has more than one share class that qualifies for membership in the index on a stand- alone security basis, only the share class with the highest liquidity as measured by ADTV of the last month will be considered for composition.
IPOs are reviewed for addition at a regular reconstitution on the basis of the eligibility criteria, and availability of the sufficient data for beta-score calculation with respect to Bitcoin (minimum of 3 months).
The reason why company X may not be included in the ETF is that it doesn’t meet the selection criteria when the ETF was last reconstituted. Should this company now meet the index selection criteria, for example if its liquidity, measured by the average daily volume of transactions, exceeds the minimum authorized threshold, it will become a candidate for inclusion at the next reconstitution date.
To avoid undue concentration, at each rebalancing, each individual constituent should not represent more than 10% of the portfolio. This capping constraint is applied to the equity weights on each Determination Date through an iterative process, where any weights in excess of 10% are redistributed proportionally among the remaining securities pro-rated, repeated until none of the weights exceeds 10%. Moreover, as the performance tracking is done through a diversified basket of traditional assets (equities), it is eliminating the risks usually associated with Bitcoin, like loss, theft or hacking. By investing in equities replicating the Bitcoin performance, investors can achieve diversified asset allocation that was not available before!
