At the Index Coop, we build products that make crypto easy to access.
The Coinshares Gold & Cryptoasset Index Lite, CGI, is the next step in that mission. CGI gives holders passive access to the theme of ‘hard’ or ‘sound’ money, with crossover between the digital (BTC, ETH) and physical (Gold) worlds.
For millennia, investors have sought exposure to physically scarce resources as stores of value. Beginning with Bitcoin, cryptoassets have endeavored to digitally replicate the scarcity characteristics of their physical counterparts.
But scarcity is not the only dimension that investors in these assets consider. Anyone who’s monitored cryptoassets broadly is aware of the volatility associated with this nascent asset class.
CGI’s proprietary methodology seeks to dampen the volatility associated with cryptoassets by rotating between them and gold. This concept, known as “volatility harvesting,” is the crux behind CGI.
By pairing gold and cryptoassets in a way that accounts for their risk contribution, CGI delivers a risk and return profile that is superior to holding gold or cryptoassets alone.
