Holon Unveils Australia’s First Unlisted Funds in Partnership With Gemini (Report)

Holon Global Investments has launched three new digital asset venture capital funds – Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum(ETH) and Filecoin [FIL] in partnership with Gemini.

These funds are Australia’s first non-listed retail funds that would offer passive exposure to spot prices for the three crypto-assets. The Holon Filecoin Fund is the first retail-managed digital asset investment vehicle to be registered with ASIC.

Detail: New Retail Funds

The report states that each fund will be charged a management fee at 0.40% per year. This is a reduction of 67% from the 1.25% charge by the first batch in Australia of cryptocurrency ETFs. The expenses for the new products will be capped at 0.4% per year.

Rory Scott, Holon’s head of asset management, was quoted as saying:

We don’t believe we add a lot of value to this market, so we shouldn’t be charging a high fee. We have looked at all parts of the value chain to determine if we believe there is value in charging a fee to be a product provider and if there may be a better way.

Heath Behncke, the firm’s chief executive, revealed that approvals from Australia Securities and Investments Commission took approximately a year. This commission oversees financial services and funds.

The market took a drastic turn during this phase. Holon believes that investors are looking to gain access to the market through a traditional, regulated format such as a managed fund, despite the persistent bearish sentiment.

Gemini’s Custody Solutions: Leveraging

Behncke believes that the launch of the Australian cryptocurrency market is significant. The funds were designed to include Gemini’s institutional-grade custody in order to provide market players with lucratively priced exposure.

“We believe in the potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency revolutionizing key areas of the Australian and global economy, including finance and data storage. However, Australian financial investors and financial advisors have had difficulty finding regulated ways of investing.

Gemini and Holon have been together since August 2021 when they partnered to create the Wholesale Filecoin Fund.

The crypto exchange was founded by Tyler Winklevoss and Cameron Winklevoss (high-profile twin tech investors), and recently obtained authorization to operate in Ireland as a Virtual Asset Service provider (VASP). Gemini, however, has laid off at most 68 employees to combat the crypto winter using “extreme cost-cutting”.
