SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Victory Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCTR) (“Victory Capital” or the “Company) today announced that its wholly owned investment adviser, Victory Capital Management Inc., has launched the Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund LLC, a private fund that tracks the Nasdaq Crypto Index (NCI). Additionally, the Company said it has filed an initial registration statement with the SEC to offer the strategy in an ETF vehicle.
The private fund, developed as part of Victory Capital’s previously announced exclusive agreements with renowned index provider Nasdaq and global crypto-focused asset manager Hashdex Ltd. (“Hashdex”), provides U.S. accredited investors access to digital assets. Through this offering, investors gain broad-based exposure to crypto assets in a dynamic, adaptable way for a relatively low cost and without lockups.
The Company believes the new private fund is unique in the digital asset investment landscape due to its multi-coin access, daily liquidity at NAV and Nasdaq index governance, which includes rigorous vetting of crypto assets, custodians and exchanges with quarterly rebalancing and reconstitution.
“In conjunction with industry index leader Nasdaq and crypto asset manager Hashdex, we’re thrilled to offer investors access to the exciting and emerging crypto asset space,” said Mannik Dhillon, CFA, CAIA, President of VictoryShares & Solutions. “We’re confident we’re on the verge of fast and remarkable advancements in this arena, and the Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund, along with a potential future ETF offering, will provide our clients with convenient exposure to multiple coins while introducing a new asset class for their portfolios.”

The Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund LLC is a private fund; it is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, and therefore is not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds or ETFs registered. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objective, risk factors, fees and expenses and other information included in the Private Placement Memorandum. Investors in the fund must be verified as Accredited Investors.
Investments in the Fund are speculative investments that involve a high degree of risk, including a partial or total loss of invested funds. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective or return any capital. The interests in the Fund are not suitable for any investor that cannot afford loss of the entire investment and is not intended as a complete investment program. The interests in the Fund are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Investment Company Act of 1940, or any state or foreign securities laws, and are being offered in private placements pursuant to the exemption from registration provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D and/or Regulation S of the Securities Act and other similar exemptions in the laws of the states and jurisdictions where the offering will be made. As a result, interests in the Fund are restricted and subject to significant limitations on resales and transfers. Potential investors should have limited need for liquidity in their investment and should carefully consider the long-term nature of an investment in the Fund prior to making an investment decision. Interests in the Fund are not insured by the FDIC or any other governmental agency.
