Press release

Düsseldorf, April 5, 2021. The investable universe of the Postera Fund – Crypto I has been expanded and now includes five new tokens, all of which fall under the Decentralized Finance (“DeFi”) category.

DeFi describes an ecosystem of composable applications built on the Ethereum blockchain. These applications enable a great variety of financial use cases, from lending and borrowing to trading to insurance. “The category has experienced very strong growth in recent months. We expect that over the coming years, DeFi applications will replace much of today’s financial infrastructure, providing further opportunities to realize extraordinary gains,” says Nicolas Biagosch, CEO of Postera Capital, promotor of the Postera Fund – Crypto I.

The five newly added protocols and their respective tokens are:

  • Aave (AAVE) – a liquidity protocol which lets users earn interest on deposits or borrow against their assets.
  • Compound (COMP) – a decentralized lending and borrowing protocol.
  • Synthetix (SNX) – a protocol enabling the creation of synthetic assets.
  • Uniswap (UNI) – a decentralized trading protocol where users can swop assets against each other.
  • Nexus Mutual (NXM) – a decentralized insurance protocol, providing cover against losses in other DeFi applications.

In 2020, the Postera Fund – Crypto I was recognized as the best-performing regulated fund in Europe with a net return of 186%. With the addition of five new assets, the Postera Fund – Crypto I continues to deliver on its mission to provide professional investors with best-in-class access to the emerging crypto asset class. Investors in the fund will be able to participate in the value created by cutting-edge technologies and applications which will shape the future of finance.
