The Canadian-based Rivemont Crypto Fund, managed by a Rivemont The cryptocurrency investments management firm, holds about 91 percent of its $2.3 million in trust assets, with only 9 percent in Bitcoin (BTC), as recently reported by Bloomberg.
The Rivemont Crypto Fund was founded in December 2017 and is reportedly the only actively managed cryptocurrency fund in Canada. The fund is registered with the Ontario Securities Commission, the Alberta Securities Commission, the British Columbia Securities Commission, and is licensed to operate in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), XRP (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Ethereum Classic (ETC).
The fund also plans to invest in Initial Currency Offerings (ICOs) and alternative currencies such as Neo (NEO) and Dash (DASH).

At the moment of this writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at around $7,400, an increase of almost 10% in the last 24 hours.
As unveiled earlier this month, data from Autonomous Research show that the number of funds focused on crypto was estimated at 251 in April 2018, 175 of which were launched in 2017. In 2018, only 26 new crypto-related investments funds have been established, indicating a possible downward trend.
