Unum Crypto Core Portfolio

If you are a Crypto trading novice, the one way to gain broad exposure to cryptocurrencies is through a Core & Satellite Strategy, where:

1. The Core provides exposure that is broadly representative of the market, and
2. Satellite strategies that have the potential to deliver higher returns through concentrated exposure at a reduced weighting.


The Unum Crypto Core Portfolio

In this case, the Core is a combination of the XAI Altcoin Index, which includes 6 cryptocurrencies (Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ripple, Monero, Litecoin and Zcash) that cover 21.5% of the crypto market capitalization and the big daddy of the Crypto market, Bitcoin.



Current Allocation:

Core: 76.5%
Satellite: 21%
Cash: 2.5%

The performance of cryptocurrencies have exceeded many expectations and while we may see pullbacks over various time frames, those pullbacks would allow investors and traders to take a position to gain exposure to potential bigger future moves. Below we highlight the performance of Bitcoin, Litecoin as well as Ripple.
