JPMorgan To Offer “Crypto Exposure Basket”

In a recent US SEC filing, JPMorgan disclosed that it has designed a new debt instrument that provides investors direct exposure to multiple crypto-focused companies. The instrument, called “JPMorgan’s Cryptocurrency Exposure Basket” is described as an “unequally weighted basket consisting of 11 Reference Stocks of U.S.-listed companies" that operate businesses, directly and indirectly, related to digital assets.

The venture allocates 20% to MicroStrategy - the data analytics firm with 91,064 BTC on its balance sheet. It also provides direct exposure to Square (18%) and Riot Blockchain (15%), two companies with significant exposure to Bitcoin. Nvidia Corporation and PayPal Holdings each account for 15% of the basket.

Some other enterprises included are Advanced Micro Devices, Taiwan Semiconductor Company, Intercontinental Exchange, CME Group, and Silvergate Capital.

JPMorgan says payouts are based on how the basket of companies performs. The minimum investment is $1,000 and the maturation date is May 2022. The new product is one of many ways in which institutional investors can access the high-flying cryptocurrency market.
