Advanced security and reliability 🛡️
Blockchain-based, not server or cloud based.
Self custody & direct ownership: With Insula, you are not only in control but are actually the direct owner of your cryptocurrency at all times. You are protected against any counterparty risk of default and hack of a crypto- exchange, fund manager or index provider. Fundamentally, cryptocurrency works on a blockchain, not on a server or a cloud.
A traceable, transparent blockchain audit: our fund performance is not calculated or computed by Insula, but by the trustless blockchain itself.
Fund administration: is done on the blockchain to prevent human reporting errors. It allows Insula to charge a net 0 administrative fee to its investors, while delivering exact & reliable performance reporting.
Superior investment performance & risk mitigation 📈
A broad and diverse investment universe focused on DeFi tokens: there are 7200+ cryptos: by only investing in the top ones, you are potentially missing out on the next big thing.
Diversification: Top tokens’ prices are well known to move together (prices are correlated) and so in other words, in crypto, eggs are partly put in the same basket. Insula ensures diversification by leveraging decades-old mathematical frameworks that are well-proven in traditional markets.
Large and small cap mix: By buying the top basket you are also buying the most expensive basket, some of which may be overvalued. Our fund gives access to rising DeFi Tokens before they get listed on main platforms, allowing our investors to capture exchange listing premium in time.
Automation: To prevent human bias in the investment decision-making and execution, Insula exclusively relies on algorithms to invest. Learn more about our detailed investment philosophy.
Guide to help you invest in the fund.
- Fund administration being run by autonomous smart contracts, we charge 0% management fee.
Entry feeOne-off fee
Entry charges and costs are one-off costs that you pay when you purchase one or more shares in a fund.
Entry charges are stated as a 1% of the capital you invest, and are charged on top of the amount invested.
Performance feeRecurring fee - monthly
- Performance fee crystallises only after a certain period of time (after one month). This crystallisation period acts as a buffer for short-term fluctuations, and incentivises the fund manager to optimise for long-term performance and not for short-term fluctuations.
- Performance fee is paid out by creating shares for the manager, conserving the number of shares that investors hold.

A one-stop shop for crypto companies and individual investors:
Insula is a fully decentralized hedge fund that aims to outperform Bitcoin. Investors in the fund maintain full custody of their assets; Insula can trade, but only the investor can make withdrawals. The strategy is to run actively traded funds that are diversified and market neutral, thereby limiting risk.
Insula also makes use of algorithms and machine learning to maximize trading opportunities. Decisions to buy or sell are made based on automated signal generations and based on averaged out mathematical oscillators & indicators.
This removes human bias and frees Insula from the rollercoaster of human emotion that fuels the majority of buying and selling in the crypto market.
Insula Funds provide a permissionless instant access to $35Bn across an investment universe of 1000+ liquid digital assets.
Insula cryptocurrency Blockchain Traded Funds aim at gathering systemic and price stability in one single investable asset.
Insula decentralised autonomous token funds are machine-generated by other autonomous machines (smart contracts) in order to limit the human brain’s bias injection (partly attributed to the insular lobe) into the overall investment software system stack and investment operations.
Full computerisation on an open grid allows for efficient investment process, custody process, and finally fund administration process. Fund administration processes are all repetitive and costly processes by nature, lending themselves well to robotic process automation.
Insula Blockchain Traded Funds run the investment, custody and fund administration processes autonomously on the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
