Grayscale Announces Latest Rebalancing
Grayscale Investments has completed its second portfolio rebalancing of 2022.
The asset management giant revealed Wednesday that it had added Avalanche and Polkadot to its Digital Large Cap Fund. The diversified fund, which also includes the likes of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana, holds about $480 million in assets under management. Avalanche will account for 1.77% and Polkadot for 1.56%. Bitcoin and Ethereum take up almost 90% of the fund.
Cosmos now features in the Smart Contract Platform Ex-Ethereum Fund, a newly-launched product with around $4.9 million in assets under management. The Smart Contract Platform Ex-Ethereum Fund focuses on Ethereum competitors. Solana and Cardano each make up roughly a quarter of the fund, and Cosmos accounts for 5.23%.
As part of the same rebalancing, Grayscale removed Sushi and Synthetix from its DeFi Fund. Alongside the new fund focusing on smart contract networks, the DeFi product is one of Grayscale’s smallest offerings with just over $8 million in assets under management.
While Grayscale offers 18 investment products, the American firm is best known for its Bitcoin Trust, which holds over $29.5 billion in assets under management. Grayscale recently applied to the SEC to convert the fund to a long-awaited spot Bitcoin ETF. The firm has been going all out to get the application approved in recent months. It launched a campaign to encourage investors to lobby the SEC into giving the green light on the fund and Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenhein last week went as far as hinting that he wouldn’t rule out suing the SEC if it was denied. The decision is still pending.
