Over the last years, with the rise of the cryptocurrencies, investment managers have been creating many Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) to invest or trade these currencies, grant loans to traders, invest in companies active in this sector, etc.
Furthermore, these types of AIF can also invest in tokens, participate in Initial Coins Offering (ICO), invest in companies active in the Blockchain industry (private or public).
As a matter of fact, any type of asset can be “tokenised” or placed on Blockchain:
- A security, (bonds, shares, funds, warrant, options, etc)
- A currency, (or a cryptocurrency)
- A movable asset, (car, plane, boat, etc)
- An intellectual property right or even real estate.
