As Bitcoin grows into a globally recognised store of value, the appetite for bitcoin as a strategic asset on institutional balance sheets continues to strengthen.

With negatively yielding investments becoming the new normal in a world of rising economic uncertainty, Bitcoin presents an uncorrelated and liquid alternative hedge against expansionary monetary policies.

MBF provides wholesale investors access to bitcoin exposure via a secure, regulated, and familiar investment vehicle; a unit trust.

The Fund will target a near 100% allocation to Bitcoin and securely store the asset with its custodian - US-chartered trust company, BitGo Trust. For risk management purposes MBF has adopted a strictly passive ‘buy and hold’ strategy and will not engage in derivatives, leverage, or short selling.

The units in MBF will appeal to investors within investor directed portfolio services (IDPS), managers of fund of fund mandates, and self-directed wholesale investors with self-managed super funds.

MBF as an investment solution, allows investors to enjoy Bitcoin ownership alongside traditional asset investments, without the need to engage with new technology and subsequent administrative burdens.
