Crypto funds, ICOs and Blockchain

Establishing crypto, ICO and blockchain funds, and launching ICOs for corporates.

The popularity of cryptocurrencies and advances in blockchain technology has created a range of investment opportunities for alternative investment managers.

Crypto funds


Investors are looking for flexible structures which enable them to invest in cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple. Crypto funds allow managers to invest in and trade a portfolio of digital currencies, following traditional, alternative and new investment strategies, such as long-only, market neutral, trend following, CTA, quant, long-short and AI.

Creatrust can help investors to set up crypto funds with flexibility to invest across different types of crypto token.



Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) enable young businesses with high growth potential to quickly raise money to fund their expansion. In return for the funds raised, which can be in traditional or digital currencies, investors receive cryptocurrency tokens providing exposure to the company’s success, or the rights to benefit from its assets and services.

Creatrust helps investors to set up funds to invest in ICOs. We can also advise new and young businesses on launching an ICO. We support the company (the issuer) to create the ICO white paper explaining the underlying terms of the offering and can also help the ICO’s promoter on the regulatory framework, elements of the marketing campaign required to generate interest in the ICO and the distribution of tokens through blockchain.


Utility Tokens versus Security Tokens

Different types of tokens can be issued in the market including utility tokens, property tokens, security tokens and socially responsible or impact investing.

Creatrust helps promoter to understand the regulatory and tax framework related to these different type of token issuance.
