CoinShares Physical ETPs

The objective of an ETP is to replicate the performance of an underlying asset or benchmark with maximum efficiency and precision. Physical ETPs achieve this by purchasing the actual asset they are designed to track.

Simulated past performance is not indicative of future performance. Digital assets present a significant risk of capital loss.
Data and calculations are presented for illustrative purposes.

Investors aiming to effectively reduce their risk are looking for assets with as low correlation as possible. This means assets are moving independently from each other, and makes for a diversified portfolio.

Crypto as an asset class has historically had quite low correlation to other assets.
