Tuttle Capital Management Takes the Lead in Leveraged and Inverse Bitcoin ETFs Filing with SEC

Tuttle Capital Management, an Exchange-traded fund (ETF) issuer, has taken a bold step by filing for six leveraged and inverse Bitcoin ETFs with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

These filings aim to provide investors with the opportunity to benefit from amplified returns in the world of Bitcoin, even before the approval of a traditional spot Bitcoin ETF.

On January 3rd, Tuttle submitted three N1-A forms to the SEC.

These forms are typically used by investment companies to create new open-ended mutual funds.

Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Henry Jim shared the news on X (formerly Twitter) and revealed an effective date of March 18, 2024.

This move showcases Tuttle’s eagerness to capitalize on the growing interest in cryptocurrency investments.

Fellow Bloomberg ETF analyst James Seyffart echoed this sentiment by highlighting Tuttle’s proactive approach, as they have already filed for six leveraged Bitcoin ETFs, despite the absence of an approved spot ETF.

This demonstrates their commitment to innovation in the ETF space.

The six proposed Bitcoin ETFs include T-REX 1.5X, 1.75X, and 2X Long Spot Bitcoin Daily Target ETFs, along with T-REX 1.5X, 1.75X, and 2X Inverse Spot Bitcoin Daily Target ETFs.

These funds aim to deliver daily results with leveraged or inverse strategies, offering potential returns of up to 150% (for the 1.5X product) and 200% (for the 2X product).

Tuttle plans to initially use BlackRock’s prospective iShares spot Bitcoin ETF as the reference asset for swap agreements, though they may consider changing this reference asset in the future.

It’s important to note that these ETFs come with higher risk compared to non-leveraged alternatives because they magnify the performance of the underlying security, which in this case is Bitcoin, known for its price volatility.

Tuttle has not yet disclosed the proposed ticker symbols or set management fees for these ETFs. Further inquiries have been made to Tuttle for additional information.

Currently, Tuttle manages seven listed ETFs with a total of $96 million in assets, as per data from Stock Analysis. Among their existing products are the T-REX 2X Long Tesla Daily Target ETF (TSLT) and the T-REX 2X Long NVIDIA Daily Target ETF (NVDX).

The addition of leveraged and inverse Bitcoin ETFs to their portfolio reflects their commitment to diversifying investment options and addressing the evolving needs of investors in the cryptocurrency space.
