Main Risk Factors of a Crypto Leaders ETN

Despite all the hype, digital assets are a highly risky investment. Below are key risk factors that need to be considered before making an investment in Crypto Leaders ETN.


The trading prices of many digital assets have experienced extreme volatility in recent periods and may well continue to do so. Digital assets were only introduced within the past decade and regulatory clarity remains elusive in many jurisdictions. Digital assets' value depends on such regulation remaining favorable, as well with the technological capabilities, the development of protocol networks, competition from other digital asset networks and from forks. Volatility can be strongly amplified by transactions from speculative investors, hedge funds and other large investors. You may experience losses if you need to sell your Shares at a time when the price of the underlying digital asset is lower than it was when you made your prior investment. Even if you are able to hold Shares for the long-term, your Shares may never generate a profit. This is a risk factor to take into account before investing in a Crypto Leaders ETN.
