Quick, Easy and Simple Way to Invest in Bitcoin

The VIBF is Capital Gains Tax Free* to New Zealand Residents
The VIBF is taxed in accordance with the FDR methodology. In contrast, where NZ tax payers invest directly in Bitcoin, they pay tax on realised capital gains. It's a smart way to add digital assets to your investment portfolio.
Taxed as a PIE Fund
As a PIE fund, tax is capped at a maximum of 28% on a 5% “deemed dividend” income under Fair Dividend Rate (FDR) methodology. This equates to an effective maximum total tax rate of 1.4% per annum on the VIBF.
Trusted and Regulated
The VIBF is a registered managed investment fund in New Zealand. VIBF only invests in regulated listed overseas funds that hold their underlying Bitcoin assets in cold storage with institutional grade security. Vault doesn’t hold your assets - these are held by a regulated NZ custodian.

What People Say About Vault Digital Funds
“My main concern with investing in bitcoin has been the complexity of storage. I understand leaving bitcoin on an exchange is not safe, but I don’t want to store it myself and end up losing the passwords. Buying a fund to get the same bitcoin exposure without the effort certainly works for me.”
“This product is great. It really changed my mind about investing in Bitcoin. I was concerned and confused about having to store bitcoin myself. But Vault takes away all that hassle. It also has the added benefit of being more tax efficient.”
“I’m a relative beginner in terms of investing and definitely no expert when it comes to looking after crypto. I had some fear around the security of my investment, so the thought of handing over responsibility for this to an experienced fund manager made me feel much more relaxed. The tax benefits are a big incentive and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds!”
