GENERAL RISK FACTORS


You should be aware that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Please note that the price of units or shares and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Income receivable may vary from the amount of income projected at the time of making the investment.


Exchange rate fluctuations may affect the value of an investment and any income derived from it.


If you exercise any right to redeem, you may not get back the amount initially invested if the unit or share price has fallen since you invested. Deductions for charges and expenses, particularly the initial charge (if any), are not made uniformly throughout the life of the investment, so if you redeem out of the investment during the early years, you may not get back the amount invested.


There can be no guarantee that the tax position or proposed tax position prevailing at the time of an investment will not change. Dividends and capital gains on securities issued in the relevant funds may be subject to withholding taxes imposed by the countries in which each particular fund invests.


The offering documents for the investment funds contain important information summarizing the relevant risk factors pertaining to the investment or relevant funds. Please note, however, that no summary of risk factors is exhaustive, and there may be other risks that could affect your investment. For your own benefit and protection you should read the most recent offering documents (including any relevant supplements) carefully before investing. If you do not understand any point please ask for further information.

Overview

An investment in the Trust is not a direct investment in bitcoin. Investors will also forgo certain rights conferred by owning bitcoin directly. The Fund is not a fund registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“1940 Act”), and is not subject to regulation under the 1940, unlike most exchange traded products or ETFs. An investment in ARKB involves significant risks, may be subject to extremely volatility and investors could lose their entire investment. Thus, ARKB is not suitable for all investors.

Fund Objective

ARKB seeks to track the performance of bitcoin, as measured by the performance of the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate – New York Variant {the “Index”), adjusted for the Trust’s expense’s and other liabilities.

Why ARKB?
  • Growth Potential. Bitcoin was the first decentralized currency and is the largest digital asset by market cap (at over $1T*). It is well established as a digital currency with a broad user-base and liquidity. ARKB offers a registered vehicle for this long ­term strategic holding.
  • Simple Exposure to Bitcoin. ARKB provides exposure to bitcoin which is kept in cold storage** by a trusted custodian, offering greater protection than custody options available to individual investors.
  • Tool for Diversification. Add diversification to a portfolio by adding an asset with low correlation to traditional assets.
  • Exposure without Complexity. Access to one of the leading digital assets without mastering arcane details of how to safely trade or store them.

*Source: Coinbase. As of March 31, 2024.
** Bitcoin cold storage refers to the practice of keeping bitcoins in offline environments to safeguard them from potential online threats of hacking and theft. Cold storage provides vital protection for both long-term holders and investors against the numerous risks posed by malicious actors online.

Performance

Performance

From:

Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original cost. Extraordinary performance is attributable in part due to unusually favorable market conditions and may not be repeated or consistently achieved in the future. The Fund’s most recent month-end performance can be found in the fund material section. Returns for less than one year are not annualized. Net asset value (“NAV”) returns are based on the dollar value of a single share of the ETF, calculated using the value of the underlying assets of the ETF minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The NAV is typically calculated at 4:00 pm Eastern time on each business day the Cboe BZX Exchange is open for trading. Market returns are based on the trade price at which shares are bought and sold on the Cboe BZX. using the last share trade. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Total Return reflects the reinvestment of distributions on ex-date for NAV returns and payment date for Market Price returns. The market price of the ETF’s shares may differ significantly from their NAV during periods of market volatility. A bid-ask spread is the amount by which the ask price exceeds the bid price for an asset in the market.

The Premium/Discount chart shows the difference between the daily market price of the Fund’s shares and the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”). The daily market price is calculated using the mid-point between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund’s NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 pm Eastern time). The vertical axis of the chart shows the premium or discount of the Mid-Point price as a percentage of the NAV. The horizontal axis shows the number of trading days covered by the chart, and each bar in the chart demonstrates how many days the Fund traded within the given premium/discount range. The data presented in the chart and table above represent past performance and cannot be used to predict future results.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no assurance that the Trust will generate a profit for investors.

The Trust may not be suitable for all investors.
The Trust is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 or a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act. Shares of the Trust are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds. These investments are not suitable for all investors. Trusts focusing on a single asset generally experience greater volatility. There are special risks associated with short selling and margin investing. Please ask your financial advisor for more information about these risks.
Bitcoin is a relatively new asset class, and the market for bitcoin is subject to rapid changes and uncertainty. Bitcoin is largely unregulated and bitcoin investments may be more susceptible to fraud and manipulation than more regulated investments.


Bitcoin is subject to unique and substantial risks, including significant price volatility and lack of liquidity, and theft. The value of an investment in the Trust could decline significantly and without warning, including to zero. Bitcoin is subject to rapid price swings, including as a result of actions and statements by influencers and the media, changes in the supply of and demand for bitcoin, and other factors. There is no assurance that bitcoin will maintain its value over the longterm.


Failure by the Trust’s Bitcoin Custodian to exercise due care in the safekeeping of the Trust’s bitcoin could result in a loss to the Trust. Shareholders cannot be assured that the Bitcoin Custodian will maintain adequate insurance with respect to the Bitcoin held by the custodian on behalf of the Trust.
The Trust is not actively managed and will not take any actions to take advantage, or mitigate the impacts, of volatility in the price of bitcoin.
An investment in the Trust is not a direct investment in bitcoin. Investors will also forgo certain rights conferred by owning bitcoin directly.


The trading prices of many digital assets, including bitcoin, have experienced extreme volatility in recent periods and may continue to do so. Extreme volatility in the future, including further declines in the trading prices of bitcoin, could have a material adverse effect on the value of the Shares and the Shares could lose all or substantially all of their value.


Shares of the Trust are generally bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Trust.


Only Authorized Participants may trade directly with the Trust and only large blocks of Shares called “creation units.” Your brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Shares in the Trust are not FDIC insured and may lose value and have no bank guarantee. This material must be accompanied or preceded by a prospectus. Carefully consider the Trust’s investment objectives, risk factors, and fees and expenses before investing. For further discussion of the risks associated with an investment in the Trust please read the Trust’s prospectus.
