Why invest?

  • AI is a revolutionary technology with the potential for significantly transforming industries, services, labour and consumption
  • The strategy offers access to the AI space through direct investment in publicly listed firms globally, which are capitalising on AI by enhancing, enabling, or engaging the technology
  • Focused exposure to businesses that are capitalising on the growth in the adoption of AI technology 
  • The research for the selection of companies in the index and, subsequently, the strategy, is conducted by experts in the AI value chain and the technology market, ensuring the portfolio remains focused and relevant

Requirements for opening an account

  • Minimum deposit: 10,000,- EUR (USD, GBP or equivalent in foreign currency)
  • Minimum age: 21 years for a margin account

Fees & Expenses

Here we provide an overview of the fees and expenses you may have to pay when you invest in the strategy:

  • Setup-Fees: We charge a brokerage account setup fee of €750,00 and an on-boarding and KYC administration fee of €550,00
  • In addition, we charge a one-time AI-42 INDEX™ license fee, based on the amount you are investing (Assets under Management, “AUM”) based on the following schedule: €2.500,00 (<€100.000 AUM), €15.000,00 (€100.000,00 – €1.000.000,00 AUM) or 1,00% of the AUM (> €1.000.000,00 AUM)
  • Ongoing fees: We charge a 2% management fee of the AUM and a 20% performance fee, whereas we apply a high watermark rule

Risks

  • Although the Index was created to select companies with a relatively higher exposure to AI, there is no guarantee this objective will be achieved
  • An investment in equities may experience high volatility and should be considered as a longer term investment
  • Higher growth companies such as those that play a part in megatrends tend to trade at higher valuations. The investor should consider the risk that comes with higher valuations as part of any investment decision
  • Investment risk may be concentrated in specific sectors, countries, companies or currencies

How do I invest?
We open an investor brokerage account in the investor’s name which means complete transparency over all transactions and capital movements throughout the investment phase. He can view the current and historical transactions at any time via the online trading platform or via the mobile app. Reallocation of positions occurs once a quarter following the AI-42 INDEX rebalancing by our team.

As the brokerage account is in the investor’s name, he can add funds to his brokerage account at any time. We need a two working days notice to rebalance the portfolio positions after the funds are available.

Can I withdraw my investment?
The brokerage account is in the investor’s name, withdrawals can be done any time without any limitations. To make sure the portfolio remains balanced correctly, we recommend a two working days notice ahead of time.

Where is the money being held?
The invested amount stays in the investor’s brokerage account, in his name.
