What Is your investment approach?


We only invest in the leading cryptocurrencies and they must have a market capitalisation of at least NZD $500 million.

We consider that to invest successfully in this asset class, continual research and monitoring of each asset is required. This is important in order to determine the overall asset weighting and therefore construct an appropriate portfolio. A diversified portfolio limits the exposure of investing in just one cryptocurrency.

We invest based on fundamentals not retail hype. Our approach is to take a considered position in order to deliver on our objective of providing strong returns to our investors.

The Board engage specialist cryptocurrency experts to assist them when making investment decisions. We continually review the weightings of individual assets and monitor other assets which may warrant inclusion.

How do I add to my investment?


Crossgate Capital provides complete flexibility to tailor your reinvestment plan at any time to suit.

With Crossgate Capital you can make one-off investments and you also have the option of setting up a regular investment on a fortnight or monthly basis. Our automatic reinvestment option continues to prove popular as an increasing number of investors elect to use this feature.

Investors have the flexibility to cancel or put on hold the regular investment plan at any time or amend the amount.

Regular investing makes it easier to achieve your investment goals with less time and effort and allows you to manage investment risk by dollar-cost averaging into the market.

Dollar-cost averaging is when you choose to invest a certain amount regardless of what the price is. When you invest for the short term, it becomes more important to ‘buy the dips and sell the rips’ at precisely the right time. If you have a longer term horizon, the objective is that the value of the investment grows over the long term even when the value goes up and down in the short term.

Regular investing may be the key to attaining your goal and our automatic reinvestment plan is a great time-saving measure to help you achieve this.




How can I exit my investment?


Crossgate Capital provides investors an easy on-ramp to a modern product whilst providing all the benefits that are associated with a traditional Share offer, such as being able to list the Shares on the Unlisted Securities Exchange (USX), based in New Zealand.

What about Estate Planning?


As investing in cryptocurrencies becomes increasingly popular, long-term investors are increasingly concerned with the uncomfortable question, what happens to my cryptocurrencies if I pass away or become incapacitated.

Crossgate Capital is a traditional investment vehicle, with Shares titled in the investor’s name, which may provide an easier and traditional solution in respect to estate planning. If an unfortunate event occurs, the Shares you hold form part of the assets of your estate. The administrator for the estate, can therefore make contact with us to assist.

Individual investors who purchase cryptocurrencies through an exchange and hold the assets themselves may need a plan to ensure their beneficiaries can access their investment. If the private keys to a cryptocurrency wallet are no longer available, then the cryptocurrency could be lost forever. This is because blockchains are highly secure and the entire process is decentralised, so there is no way to restore a private key. This also makes whatever cryptocurrency you’ve invested in a challenge to pass on.

Individual investors may share their private keys with a trusted representative, so their investment can be accessed if required. You may need to keep a note of specific instructions on how to access the private key in the wallet, all usernames for online accounts and any details on the public and private keys themselves. Or identify another way to ensure that your investment can be accessed.

Crossgate Capital provides a simple solution to this important question.
