Risk Profile

Investors of Crypto Currencies (Virtual Currencies) (and therefore investors in products with Crypto Currencies as an underlying, indirectly) are exposed to elevated risk of fraud, theft and cyber attacks. Several markets for Crypto Currencies already had to cease their activities or have been closed for other reasons – in some cases because of hacker attacks. In the case of fraud, theft and cyber attacks on the stored positions of the Custodian the Issuer, may exercise its Termination Right and early redeem the Certificate. Moreover, a termination of a hedge position in the Underlying (including, but not limited to, any loss realized by the Issuer resulting from fraud, theft and cyberattacks relating to Custodian and/or Reference Source(s) of the Issuer) could lead to a considerably decreased Redemption Amount includinga possible total loss. Crypto Currencies can be stolen from the Custodian. After purchase, Crypto Currencies are regularly stored in a “virtual wallet” on a computer, laptop or smartphone. These virtual wallets are usually protected by a private key or password. Virtual wallets also usually have a public key and a private key or a password for the access however, virtual wallets are not fully protected from hackers. Just as in real wallets, money can be stolen from a virtual wallet as well. Thefts and hacker attacks can have a negative impact on the reputation of the currency or the market place concerned and thus affect negatively the market price of Crypto Currencies. Through the product, investors would indirectly participate to such a negative performance, the total loss would be possible. Crypto Currencies can be used anonymously and Crypto Currencies do not have to be traded through government institutions or banks. Crypto Currencies can be purchased directly from an owner or a trading venue. These platforms are generally not regulated. Investors thus face increased risk of the issuer identifying occurrence of a hedging disruption, involving the loss risks outlined below. The market value of a Crypto Currency is not based on any kind of claim, nor any physical asset. Instead, the market value depends entirely on the expectation of being usable in future transactions. This strong correlation between an expectation and market value is the basis for the current and probably high future volatility of the market value of Crypto Currencies. If over 50% of all computers used worldwide for verifying Crypto Currencies transactions are subject to control by a single instance, there is a risk that the controlling instance could take over 100% of all transactions. Such “51% attacks”, as they are known, can cause overall confidence in Crypto Currencies to evaporate, bringing all trading to a halt, thereby causing losses for investors up to and including a possible total loss.

Risk of data loss

Since the power of disposal of a credit balance in a cryptocurrency exists exclusively through the secret private keys, credit balances can be irretrievably lost through data loss.

Risk of exchange rate fluctuations and price manipulation

Relatively few of the crypto assets operated worldwide are tradeable in regular currencies. They are often, at most, tradeable into other crypto assets. Those that are convertible can be risky as a result of their high volatility and constitute a potential target for attacks. In particular, due to small volumes, crypto assets constitute an object of speculation, unlike stable exchange rate systems in conventional currencies. The exchange rates occur completely outside this system. The exchange rate information vis-à-vis other (in particular, conventional) currencies is information from traders or stock exchanges and may be subject to manipulation. In particular, it does not constitute any guarantee that the cryptocurrency is actually exchanged at this rate

Counterparty Risk

With involvement of exchanges and other possible third-parties (e.g. storage providers) the investor is exposed to counterparty risk which may lead to a considerably decreased Redemption Amount including a possible total loss.

Regulatory risk

In some countries, regulatory authorities have declared themselves against the use of crypto assets, and have also, in part, already taken specific regulatory measures to prevent their use. Regulatory risks may arise at anytime in any jurisdiction and may affect the value of the crypto assets adversely.

 Risk of weaknesses or exploitable breakthroughs in the field of cryptography

Advances in cryptography or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers could present risks to cryptocurrencies, which could result in the theft or loss of crypto assets.

Internet transmission risks

There are risks associated with investing in crypto assets including but not limited to the failure of hardware, software, or internet connections. There are communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays that an investor may experience while investing in crypto assets.

Risk of low or no liquidity

Even though there are currently online services available that enable the exchange of cryptographic assets, and some of them enable the exchange of cryptographic assets for fiat money, there are no warranties and/or guarantees given that investments will be listed or made available for exchange for other cryptographic assets and/or fiat money, and no guarantees are given whatsoever concerning the capacity (volume) of such exchanges.

Risk of uninsured losses

Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, funds held using the PCP Certificate are entirely uninsured.

Unanticipated risks

Cryptocurrencies and blockchains are new and untested technology. In addition to the risks set forth here, there are risks that the PCP Certificate cannot foresee, and it is unreasonable to believe that such risks could have been foreseeable. Unanticipated risks may arise at any time.
