Rebalanced At Analyst’s Discretion

A powerful tool designed to help crypto investors build a crypto portfolio that outperforms the industry’s king – bitcoin – regardless of market conditions. The FSI Crypto team leverages their crypto expertise and ongoing analysis of macro, on-chain, and market data to craft an allocation strategy that can help investors manage the crypto portion of their investment portfolios.

How to Use the Crypto Core Strategy

  • The strategy incorporates stablecoins, bitcoin, and select altcoins that have been selected from the largest by circulating market cap and then carefully assessed by the crypto team.
  • The Crypto Core Strategy also helps investors better understand the team’s views on risk in the markets: A higher allocation of stablecoins in the strategy indicates that the team is feeling risk averse, while a lower allocation indicates that the team believes the time is right to seek out beta.
  • The alt-coin allocation in this strategy can also be used as an assessment of the team’s views on this segment of the crypto ecosystem. Watch this allocation to gauge whether the team believes “alt season” is approaching or not.
