Ether Fund’s IPO

Canadian investment fund manager 3iq Corp. announced Friday that its Ether Fund has filed for an IPO with the securities regulators in all provinces and territories of Canada, except for Quebec. Furthermore, its preliminary IPO prospectus has been green-lighted by a regulator.

A closed-end investment fund managed by 3iq, the Ether Fund intends to raise a minimum of $10.75 million and a maximum of $107.5 million by issuing Class A units at $10.75 and Class F units at $10.53. The Ether Fund reportedly aims to list on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) as does the Bitcoin Fund.

The company explained that the Ether Fund’s investment objectives are to provide investors with “exposure to the digital currency ether and the daily price movements of the U.S. dollar price of ether” and “the opportunity for long-term capital appreciation.”

Founded in 2012, 3iq currently manages the Bitcoin Fund and the 3iq Global Cryptoasset Fund, a private fund available to accredited investors in Canada. It holds BTC, ETH, and LTC.

The company launched the Bitcoin Fund on April 9; it is currently listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol QBTC.U. Its benchmark index is MVIBTC. Cidel Trust Company and Gemini Trust Company provide custody services for the product. The Bitcoin Fund completed a $48 million offering in May and a $10 million offering in June.
