Schwab Crypto Thematic ETF (NYSEARCA: STCE)

The fund is designed to track Schwab Asset Management’s new proprietary index, the Schwab Crypto Thematic Index.

The Schwab Crypto Thematic ETF aims to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Schwab Crypto Thematic Index which has been developed by Schwab Asset Management’s Thematic Research team.

The ETF will not invest in cryptocurrencies as it is designed to deliver global exposure to companies that may benefit from one or more of the following business activities: either directly or facilitating others in validating consensus mechanisms for (such as mining or staking) investing in, or trading cryptocurrency or other digital assets; enabling the use of cryptocurrency or other digital assets to buy or sell goods or services; and developing, distributing or implementing applications of blockchain or other distributed ledger technology, including in new cryptocurrencies or digital assets.

With an annual operating expense ratio of 0.30%, STCE will be the lowest cost crypto-related ETF available to investors today.

Fundspeak

“For investors who are interested in cryptocurrency exposures, there is a whole ecosystem to consider as more companies seek to derive revenue from crypto directly and indirectly,” said David Botset, Managing Director, Head of Equity Product Management and Innovation at Schwab Asset Management. “The Schwab Crypto Thematic ETF seeks to provide access to the growing global crypto ecosystem along with the benefits of transparency and low cost that investors and advisors expect from Schwab ETFs.”
