Managed Account ETIs
iMaps Capital provides the perfect solution for Asset Managers who are seeking to enter the market for actively managed Exchange Traded Instrument (ETI). As a business partner of Interactive Brokers we provide an Exchange Traded Instrument that efficiently tracks the performance of an managed account and our clients benefit from a broad range of instruments which are eligible for trading through Interactive Brokers LLC.
The Managed Account ETI provides a cost-efficient solution for emerging managers, even with small seed money at launch. As an exchange traded product, it will be marketed to sophisticated investors in Europe. By promoting ETI units which are listed at the exchange, the asset manager can gain more investors who have easy access to the instrument via their normal broker relationship.
A Fund manager with an alternative investment strategy and international investor base is faced with several restrictions by the AiFMD, prohibiting Managers from offshore funds, as well as exempt AIFs (those with assets under management below 100 million Euro) from marketing in the EU.
By using a fund linked ETI tracking the performance of the fund, they will overcome these difficulties. By repackaging the fund, their sales team can promote the ETI to European Investors, allowing asset managers to get their first step into a booming market.
Blockchain-Linked ETI is a solution for asset managers who are looking to build a bridge between the digital assets world and financial markets. We offer asset managers the repackaging of actively managed accounts of cryptocurrencies (which are already issued and traded at the secondary market), as well as the repackaging of cryptocurrencies, cryptocurrency baskets and indexes. We also provide repackaging solutions to crytocurrency and blockchain technology related funds.
By choosing the launch of a Blockchain-Linked ETI, asset managers can diversify their product range into the booming sector of exchange traded products tracking the cryptocurrency markets.
