Global Advisors Bitcoin Investment Fund
The world's first regulated investment vehicle that seeks to achieve capital appreciation through direct and indirect exposure to Bitcoin.
The Global Advisors Bitcoin Investment Fund (GABI) is the world’s first regulated Bitcoin investment vehicle. The fund seeks to achieve capital appreciation through direct and indirect exposure to Bitcoin and Bitcoin-related markets.
Bitcoin is a decentralised electronic payment system. It allows a user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another user securely and definitively. Bitcoin exists thanks to a network of computers that keep an electronic record of all transactions – a distributed “ledger” called the “blockchain”. The Bitcoin network fulfils the function that in the conventional financial system is performed by a “trusted third party intermediary”, such as a bank or a credit card company.
The performance of the fund depends on the price appreciation of Bitcoin. Because Bitcoin supply is fixed by design within the Bitcoin algorithm, its price should rise automatically with increases in demand. The Investment Manager has identified several potential growth scenarios, which are not mutually exclusive:
● Bitcoin has unique utility in ultra-small micropayments, which have never been feasible
● Alternative to mainstream banking system in developing world – a low-cost mobile banking/remittance system
● Growth as an alternative asset class, non-correlated to fiat currencies
● Much wider applications of “blockchain” technology as a generic transaction mechanism
