Research: Bitcoin Provides Great Diversification Benefits For Multi-Asset Portfolios

MakerDAO, for instance, is a decentralized debt system running on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows people to lock their ETH in a smart contract as …

New research by the world’s top crypto exchange, Binance, indicates that portfolios that include Bitcoin exhibited overall better risk-return profiles than traditional multi-asset class portfolios.

Binance Research Delves Into Portfolios

The research division of Malta based Binance has been analyzing different portfolio structures to ascertain the differences in risk-return profiles.

“#Binance Research analysis shows that including $BTC in traditional multi-asset class portfolios provides overall better risk-return profiles.”

Portfolio Management Series #1 – Diversification Benefits with #Bitcoin#Binance Research analysis shows that including $BTC in traditional multi-asset class portfolios provides overall better risk-return profiles.

How much of your portfolio is Bitcoin?https://t.co/s8MFE42sfl

— Binance Research (@BinanceResearch) July 25, 2019

The study concluded that for a decade, Bitcoin has been an extremely volatiles asset exhibiting large drawdowns. Conversely it has also had some of the largest price rallies in recorded history. Additionally there has been no significant correlation between BTC and other traditional asset classes such as commodities, equities, or fixed-income products.

Bitcoin has a number of advantages from a trading perspective as it is one of the most liquid assets on the planet. With consistently low spreads and high volumes trading venues are consistently being arbitraged it added. The report added:

“Binance Research simulated different Bitcoin allocation techniques in existing diversified multi-asset portfolios. All simulated portfolios which included Bitcoin exhibited overall better risk-return profiles than traditional multi-asset class portfolios. These results show that Bitcoin provides active diversification benefits for all investors worldwide, following multi-asset strategies.”

New institutionally focused investment products and crypto custody solutions have made Bitcoin an essential asset to be included in any portfolio for its diversification properties.

It is no surprise that BTC was declared highly volatile with annual returns in four figures for three of its ten year existence. Only in 2014 and 2018 did Bitcoin show a loss year on year. Because it is a nascent technology and asset with a null starting value it has experienced wild price fluctuations.

The report added that volatility is likely to decrease as the industry matures and new institutional products such as Fidelity Digital, ETFs, and mutual funds are launched. Expanding on correlation, the research compared BTC returns with other traditional assets such as the S&P 500, FTSE 100, oil, gold and silver. It concluded that Bitcoin would be a very good choice for those seeking diversification since it remains uncorrelated with all other non-crypto financial instruments and asset classes.

The research was Binance’s first report in a series on portfolio management. Irrespective of preferred asset class, BTC was found to provide diversification benefits leading to an improved risk-return profile for investors. It concluded that despite the simplicity of the strategies described, they all provided overall positive results from a risk/return perspective.

Income funds are critical building blocks of a balanced fund

The Fairtree Flexible Income Plus fund invests in interest bearing and non-equity securities, including bonds, cash deposits, money market …

Mixing income funds with equity in a balanced fund’s portfolio offers additional predictability and helps to protect capital and maximise income growth.

The Fairtree Flexible Income Plus fund invests in interest bearing and non-equity securities, including bonds, cash deposits, money market instruments, non-equity derivatives and JSE-listed preference shares.

The fund, which is largely invested in local money market and bonds but has some foreign exposure, is one of the investments of the Fairtree Balanced Prescient Fund and provides it with exposure to assets that balance risk and maximise returns for the fund.

Efficient construction

Louis Antelme, one of the portfolio managers of Fairtree Flexible Income Plus Fund, says the fund is a credit fund, with a portfolio of credit instruments aimed at extracting the credit spread. “Our whole thesis is that by efficiently constructing credit portfolios, we can make losses due to defaults more predictable and manageable and that we are overcompensated for the default risk that we assume.” The R2.1 billion fund can run some limited interest rate risk, although at the moment it has no exposure to interest rates.

Antelme says the credits pay a floating rate over a three-month Jibar (Johannesburg Interbank Average Rate; the money market rate used in South Africa). The fund can take up to 40% offshore, with the currency exposure always hedged.

Diversification

“We try to diversify this fund as much as we can, to make losses due to defaults more predictable and manageable and so that we don’t suffer any catastrophic defaults,” Antelme says.

The fund was launched in 2013 and returns have been good, says Antelme, with an average annualised return since 2013 of 9.84% and a standard deviation of 1.82%.

He says Fairtree believes it improves the efficiency of a balanced portfolio to have some of the assets of a balanced fund in this fund due to its very low correlation to equity and other asset classes. Modern Portfolio Theory posits that if you combine many non-unity or negatively correlated assets you will reduce variance of the overall portfolio and hence optimise return for a given level of risk. The fund has very low correlation to other asset classes.

Edge

The fund managers “are not in the business of forecasting and don’t attempt to forecast currency movements or economic cycles and don’t try to time the credit cycle,” says Antelme. They do, however, believe they have an edge in the pricing of credit instruments.

The result is that the fund “has performed really well, and going back five years we have shown a steady return”, with a return of over 10% over one, two, three and five years, and a steady ranking near the top of its peer group.

Investors should bear in mind that income funds are a good building block for broader portfolios, with low correlation with other asset classes and lower variance.
