Fidelity Head Launches New Bitcoin Index Fund; $100,000 Minimum Buy-In Price

One of the largest mutual funds in the U.S., Fidelity Investments, is enhancing its efforts in the Bitcoin and crypto space with its chief strategist, Peter Jubber, starting an institutional-grade and high net worth clients-focused BTC index.

According to a filing sent to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), Fidelity Investments has launched a new Bitcoin index fund, ‘Wise Origin Bitcoin Index Fund I, LP’ that targets high et worth investors and institutions. A $100,000 minimum buy-in value is required by the index fund following the demand by corporations and accredited investors on Wall Street on crypto investments.

The Wise Origin Bitcoin fund was launched by the head of strategy and planning at Fidelity Investments, Peter Jubber, in conjunction with the mutual fund’s brokerage and distribution divisions. The fund aims to provide a gateway for accredited investors on Wall Street to dip their feet into crypto.

Fidelity is known for its soft stance on crypto investing, owning stakes in crypto companies such as Canadian mining firm, 8Hut, and providing custodial services to institutions. Jubber, also a well-known enthusiast and evangelist of Bitcoin and blockchain, in 2017 said the firm was sketching out a decade long plan on the impacts and opportunities that blockchain technology offers to traditional finance.

Peter will lead the ‘Wise Origin Bitcoin Index Fund’ as the executive director and FD’s Fund’s president. Reports on Forbes also confirm that a Delaware based firm, FD Funds GP will become a general partner to Fidelity’s new BTC fund.

Fidelity’s reports on the cryptocurrency market this June showed that over 36% of big institutional investors were taking up digital assets, and another 80% of them stating they find crypto appealing. Moreover, a recent report by the mutual fund concluded there is an increasing interest in Bitcoin as a store of value with the world’s witnessing unprecedented fiscal and monetary policies.
