YPOG advises F5 Crypto Capital on structuring open-ended crypto fund

Berlin, December 8, 2021 - A YPOG team led by partner Jens Kretzschmann has provided comprehensive legal and tax advise to the Berlin-based crypto consulting firm F5 Crypto Capital on structuring a new open-ended German crypto fund for institutional investors. It enables qualified investors to make investments in the crypto market through its subsidiary F5 Crypto Management GmbH. 

The new F5 Crypto Fonds 1 InvAG m.v.K. for semi-professional and professional investors is accepting subscriptions with immediate effect and aims to achieve a high level of diversification by specifically selecting crypto stocks. An analysis team with many years of experience in the crypto market bases the investment strategy of the new fund on fundamental analyses. A significant part of the fund also follows an index-based investment strategy. This way, the overall strategy covers broader parts of the crypto market, such as tokens from the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) sector, metaverse applications and Web 3.0 projects. A special benefit for investors is the open structure of the fund. The F5 Crypto Fund 1 offers weekly subscription and redemption, with share units visible in the bank custody account via ISIN.   

"We are very pleased to be involved in launching this, for the German crypto market, significant fund and to be able to support once again with our expertise in fund structuring and the implementation of innovative ideas. A German open-ended crypto fund product as an InvAG m.v.K. was missing on the market until now," says partner Jens Kretzschmann.
