New York, NY –
Securitize Capital, the digital asset management platform offering institutional-grade, tokenized funds, today announced the launch of a regulated ETH Yield Fund, as an onramp for investors to access an important blockchain protocol powering the fast-growing DeFi, NFT and Metaverse ecosystems, with the potential for yield derived from its lending.
“Due to high-profile cases of crypto businesses offering unregulated securities and banking products, there is a misconception that investors cannot access yield from crypto lending in a regulated way,” said Wilfred Daye, Head of Securitize Capital. “Today, investors can access regulated, institutional-grade crypto funds and the potential for yield through Securitize with the ETH Yield Fund opened today, which joins our existing USDC and Bitcoin yield funds.”
With investors chasing meaningful returns amid rising inflation and a roller-coaster stock market, there is growing investor interest in the potential benefits of cryptocurrencies and yield strategies, such as a stablecoin plus yield (USDC Yield) and a portfolio of cryptocurrencies (Securitize-S&P Large Cap Crypto Fund). The ETH Yield Fund provides institutional investors interested in economic exposure to DeFi, NFT and Metaverse ecosystems access consistent with compliance standards. Specifically, investing in the most commonly used Ethereum blockchain powering these technologies is a readily-accessible way for institutions to participate in blockchain-based innovations in a risk-managed way, consistent with Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation D 506(c) and Regulation S 902.
The new ETH fund democratizes investment access with a low 0.5% management fee, and zero performance fee. The fund is open for investment today through Securitize Markets. Lending services will be provided by Securitize’s partner, Anchorage Digital.
The new ETH Yield Fund is Securitize Capital’s fifth fund, joining four additional landmark funds launched in 2021, including:

Private market investments are speculative and considered risky, including potential loss of your investment, and may not be appropriate for every investor. Private investments are generally an illiquid asset class; investors cannot sell their funds when they want to without potentially facing high losses. Any discussion of liquidity is purely speculative. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
Digital assets or tokens using blockchain, are speculative, involve a high degree of risk, are generally illiquid, may have no value, have limited regulatory certainty, are subject to potential market manipulation risks and may expose investors to loss of principal.
Blockchain investing involves a degree of risk that can be different from traditional markets. These risks include, but are not limited to, risk of regulatory uncertainty, market adoption, market manipulation, market exiting, price volatility and security risk
