Select 5 Index

Summary

Wave Select 5 Index is designed to represent the overall crypto currency market providing pure beta exposure. Portfolio of the top 5 cryptocurrencies is screened by our team of experts and weighted by market capitalization, with monthly rebalancing and no caps.

The Portfolio Manager has discretion to overweight or underweight the exposure to certain crypto currencies regardless of the benchmark index. This may result in over or under performance of the product relative to the benchmark index.

Criteria for including
index constituents

Market Capitalization Weighted

Cryptocurrencies are ranked by market capitalization on the last business day of every month. The top 5 cryptocurrencies are then weighted by market capitalization with no cap or floor and then included with their respective weights in the index.

Certain Coins Categorically Excluded

Stable coins, such as Tether, are excluded as they are not designed to increase in value over time. Privacy coins, such as Monero, are excluded due to their regulatory uncertainty.

Security

The committee reserves the right to remove a crypto asset from the index regardless of market cap due to high default risk. This includes: SEC reviews, drastic fall in hash power, little to no Github activity, critical bug discovered in the network. Other events that signal failure such as a 51% attack or well documented security flaw with the asset can lead to removal as well.

Historical Performance

The Wave Select 5 Index currently covers ~76% of the total market capitalization.1

Important Risks

Index Related

Performance of an index is not illustrative of any particular investment. The Wave Select 5 Index represents a hypothetical, back-tested, and unaudited return-stream that does not represent the returns of an actual account. Index performance does not include the fees and expenses. Actual returns may differ materially from hypothetical, back-tested returns. Back-testing is calculated by retroactively applying an index-weighted methodology to the historical data. Cryptocurrency selection for the index fund will be based on reasonably available data and is also subject to necessary judgement calls by management given data supply problems that currently exist in the cryptocurrency sector.

Portfolio Manager Discretion

The Portfolio Manager has discretion to overweight or underweight the exposure to certain crypto currencies regardless of the benchmark index. This may result in over or under performance of the product relative to the benchmark index. Also, for this particular product, because the Portfolio Managers are also serving as the Index Calculation Agent, there may be a conflict of interest when changes are applied to the index calculation methodology.

Past Performance

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The back-tested index performance is no guarantee of future results of the product, and is retroactively calculated based on historic values. Slippage, fees and market activities such as forks and splits may contribute to an over or under performance of the product relative to the benchmark index. The constituents of the index may not be mimicked completely by the product. Historical index based on January 2017 start date.
