The financial system as we know it is changing. Since the Financial Crisis of 2008, trust in the current economic system has been declining. Central banks continue printing large amounts of money, creating an artificially supported economy. The problems of this monetary policy are becoming increasingly visible: inflation is rising and a growing part of the population is aware that this cannot continue indefinitely.
Bitcoin was created for exactly this reason. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or administrator, which is not dependent on policy making. It creates a fairer economic alternative. Since Bitcoin's success, thousands of cryptocurrencies have been introduced, each with its own application. Diversifying your portfolio early with a small allocation in cryptocurrency can offer excellent returns.

Investing in cryptocurrencies is slightly different from investing in stocks or bonds, as this new investment category is still under constant development. While investing in cryptocurrencies brings risk and volatility, it also offers significant return opportunities. At Hodl, we recommend that investors adopt a long-term perspective when investing in this technology.
You can find more information about the risks and other essential things you should review in advance in the Essential Information Document (EID) and the Investment Memorandum (IM). Investors can find both documents on our website via the fund documents page.
Hodl caters to serious investors by offering an actively managed cryptocurrency portfolio that can be easily accessed and exited on a monthly basis. Due to our experience in traditional finance, our portfolio is carefully constructed at a weighted risk/return ratio. Our algorithmic trading bots optimise our returns, and they strategically scale positions in and out 24/7.
Furthermore, we differentiate ourselves by participating in various DeFi services. Hodl helps to validate transactions, maintain blockchain networks and provide liquidity. Hodl's mutual funds are long-only, which means that we do not use short positions, leveraged trades or derivatives.
To become a Hodl investor, it’s important to first meet with our financial specialists at our office in Rotterdam or virtually if preferred. Together we assess the role of cryptocurrency in your investment portfolio. We will also review the necessary documentation, which you can complete at home.
When the verification process is finished, you can transfer the preferred investment to Hodl. On the last day of the month, your investment will officially enter the Hodl funds. Once you become a Hodler, you will gain access to our client portal where you can monitor the performance of your investment. To keep you informed, you will also receive biweekly and monthly updates via our investor newsletter.
Currently, it is not possible for Hodl to have direct supervision of the AFM due to the unknown legal status of cryptocurrencies. However, Hodl is registered with the AFM as an alternative investment institute acting as manager for:
This registration means that Hodl has a KYC and AML policy based on the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wft) and the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Act (Wwft)
Hodl's fee structure consists of two components: the management fee and the performance fee.
Hodl's management fee stands at 0.5% per quarter on the invested assets. This management fee is calculated monthly and collected quarterly.
Hodl's performance fee is 20% on the positive returns achieved and is calculated using a High Watermark in Net Asset Value (NAV). The performance fee is calculated monthly and deducted from the net income.
The above costs are already included in the returns we communicate and therefore show the net result of the funds.
