Related Topics

REX Shares, LLC (REX), a provider of alternatives strategy funds and ETFs, has partnered with Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of BKCM (BKCM) and an investor in REX, to develop a line of ETFs and other funds designed to give investors exposure to the blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and digital assets sectors. 

Kelly will serve as a portfolio manager for the suite of funds.

REX and BKCM see a large demand for regulated investment products that give exposure to the potential value creation taking place with the evolution of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. REX Shares founder and CEO Greg King is a pioneer in the exchange-traded products industry. He has developed and launched over 85 exchange-traded products in his career and has been personally investing in cryptocurrencies since 2013. Similarly, Kelly was an early believer in cryptocurrencies, investing since 2012 and having launched one of the first cryptocurrency hedge funds.

“We wanted to work with Brian not only because of his experience in cryptocurrency investing but also because of his commitment to investor education,” says Greg King. “Brian is a knowledgeable portfolio manager who uses his platforms, such as CNBC’s Fast Money as well as his book ‘The Bitcoin Big Bang,’ to educate investors on cryptocurrencies, the technology behind them and why he believes they are important.”

“Greg has proven to be a true pioneer in the ETF industry by making investments such as the VIX and commodities accessible to investors,” says Kelly. “By partnering with REX, we hope to bring a greater opportunity set of cryptocurrency and blockchain strategies to investors who are looking for access in secure and transparent ways.”
