First Bitcoin Hedge Fund Launches From Malta

As the fund does not employ leverage or derivatives for risk management, Exante intends to provide a two-way secondary market for the trading of fund shares.

It would also provide shorting opportunities without having to own the underlying asset. Customers will be vetted according to the regular Exante capitalization requirements and margin funds would be provided through institutional broker financing at a fixed % over LIBOR.
