The US Securities Exchange Commission today approved a filing by global investments and advisory firm Guggenheim to invest $500 million into Bitcoin via digital assets manager Grayscale.

According to the US SEC filing, Guggenheim submitted an amendment proposal on November 27, 2020, to allow the firm’s $5 billion Macro Opportunities Fund to gain exposure by investing 10% of its net asset value into Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). The amendment said:

As the largest digital assets management fund in the world, Grayscale currently has a $27.7 billion net assets under management (AUM) with GBTC accounting for 83% of the total at $22.906 billion.

Guggenheim net assets totaled $4.97 billion at the time of the filing, according to data provided by Fidelity, meaning that the fund could invest up to $497 million into Grayscale’s GBTC.

Fidelity now estimates the fund to be worth $5.581 billion which would allow Guggenheim to invest approximately $558 million into BTC via Grayscale. The investment would make Guggenheim the third biggest GBTC stakeholder with a 0.26% stake (1,671,951 shares) at the current price of $34.69 per GBTC.

Ark Investments Management and Horizon Kinetics Assets Management rank in first and second positions with 6,257,925 shares (0.98%) and 2,319,090 (0.36%) shares, respectively.

GBTC allows investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin in the form of a security. The downside to GBTC is that it trades at a massive premium of between 20-30% over the underlying value of bitcoin.

A recent report by Grayscale shows that in Q4 2020, GBTC recorded a return of 26.43% generally moving in line with the price of Bitcoin and therefore prone to wild swings when Bitcoin is highly volatile.

According to Investor Business Daily’s Michael Larkin, GBTC is not a stable investment right now and investors looking for good stock should study the stock market for other profitable companies.
