The flagship fund of billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Miller will soon be able to add bitcoin exposure by investing in Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), according to a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The fund currently has approximately $2.25 billion in assets under management.
Bill Miller’s $2.25 million hedge fund will invest in HBTC
Miller Opportunity Trust, a hedge fund in the Miller Value Funds family, has filed an amendment to its registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission to access bitcoin. Billionaire investor Bill Miller founded Miller Value Partners LLC in 1999 and is the investment manager for the Miller Value Funds family.
The firm’s flagship fund, Miller Opportunity Trust, had total assets under management of $2.25 billion in December 2020. Miller and Samantha McLemore manage the foundation. According to a statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on 5… February:
The fund may seek to invest indirectly in bitcoins by investing in Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, an organization that owns bitcoins.
The investment objective of the Miller Opportunity Trust is to achieve long-term capital growth. The filing becomes effective 60 days after the filing date.
Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) is a private investment company whose shares can also be sold over-the-counter in the form of promissory notes. Grayscale recently reached the $30 billion mark in crypto assets under management, including about $24 billion in bitcoin. In addition to Bitcoin Trust, the company offers eight other cryptocurrency investment products.
Miller Opportunity Trust’s statement to the Securities and Exchange Commission explains it in more detail:
The Fund will not make an additional investment in Grayscale Bitcoin Trust if such investment would cause its total investment in bitcoin to exceed 15% of its assets at the time of investment.
Miller has long been a supporter of bitcoin. Last November, he said that all the major banks had invested in bitcoin, noting that bitcoin’s volatility decreased as the price rose.
