Who we are

Pioneering the global development of an uncorrelated, alternative asset class. The Bet on Combat Group are fund managers whose investment universe centers on combat sports and events.

Bet on Combat Investment Fund or short form BOC Fund® is a registered entity that operates like a traditional mutual fund, pooling investor’s funds into a common hedge fund and investing them in the combat sports betting marketplace.

The Bet on Combat Group was created with a view to offer investors an alternative product to shares, bonds, property and other “traditional” investment vehicles and asset classes. We are fund managers whose investment universe focuses on the burgeoning markets of combat sports and event investment. In this nascent sector we provide unparalleled investment intelligence, funds management expertise and through the use of technology, customer service.

Bet on Combat’s investment universe is independent of prevailing economic conditions, is ostensibly recession proof, and offers returns that are uncorrelated to any other mainstream investment product. Subsequently, in formulating a balanced and diversified investment portfolio we believe it is prudent to have exposure to this sector.

The Group comprises two Funds management companies operating and executing identical investment strategies.

Bet on Combat Group LLC

Founded in 2010, Bet on Combat Group is the Investment Director for the Bet on Combat Investment Fund or short form BOC Fund®, a small scale private fund that has consistently out performed the global benchmark indices, and manages approximately $2.5 million in assets as of December 1, 2017 .

The Bet on Combat Group was formed in 2010 with a vision to pioneer the development of an uncorrelated, alternative asset class. Founded by a group of senior business and gaming executives, they had identified the opportunity to secure superior returns through the application of mainstream portfolio and investment management techniques to the nascent industry of sports and event investment.

Through extensive research, due diligence, fundamental analysis and the use of technology, The Group has been able to develop a rigorous system grounded in statistical data, much the same way as has been achieved in more traditional financial markets, to produce superior returns.

The BOC Fund® is domiciled in St-John’s, Antigua and Barbuda and is open to retail and wholesale investors with USD$1,000 or more. The organogram of the Bet on Combat group companies can be found at the end of this document in Attachment A.


What we do

In this nascent sector we provide unparalleled investment intelligence, funds management expertise and through the use of technology, customer service. 

Investment Objective

The objective of Bet on Combat’s Funds is to mitigate much of the risk inherent with combat sports and event investment and generate long-term returns in excess of the major stock market and the global hedge fund indices.

The benchmarks by which to gauge investment performance are the Dow Jones index, S&P 500 indices and the Global HFRX Index.

Investment Strategy

BOC Fund® uses an approach that is grounded in historical statistical data to analyze investment opportunities across a number of combat sports and international events that are offered on global betting exchanges and by registered bookmakers.

In general, BOC Fund® trades long and short combat sports and event strategies that have a directional component and relative value strategy on either sports betting exchanges or with registered bookmakers. BOC Fund® utilizes short and medium term time frames and includes opportunistic intra-event trading as part of its overall strategy.

Key Benefits of Bet on Combat’s Funds

An investment in one of Bet on Combat’s Funds offers significant benefits including but not limited to;

  • Non-correlated Returns: Bet on Combat’s fund returns are not correlated to the performance of traditional investment products such as stocks, bonds, property etc. Subsequently, Bet on Combat’s funds can provide your investment portfolio with valuable diversification.
  • Investment Returns: Bet on Combat’s fund returns have historically been commensurate with other mainstream investment products. Subsequently, as part of an overall portfolio, an investment in one of Bet on Combat’s funds can be highly attractive.
  • Recession Proof: The asset classes invested in by Bet on Combat’s funds are ostensibly impervious to domestic or global economic conditions and hence un-correlated returns can be achieved more consistently.
  • Reduced Volatility: Bet on Combat does NOT use leverage. Subsequently, the volatility associated with most alternative asset classes does not pervade Bet on Combat’s Funds. We are able to generate significant returns without the downside risk that our competitive funds incur. 

This is why BOC Fund® is trusted to manage more money than any other sports investment firm in the world.

Management & Investment

The Bet on Combat Group’s Management and Investment team are comprised of former financial advisors, oddsmakers, experienced sports, gaming and business executives who study and analyze every fighter and every fight event to develop better information, make smarter predictions and win more money. They know what's going on inside the training camp. They know who wants it more, who's injured and who's out for revenge. They analyze upcoming match ups to find out how two fighters really compare and then provide the in-depth analysis for every combat sports wager. These wagers are further scrutinized by a proprietary big data analytics program for validation. As Professional combat sports analysts, they look at combat sports betting just like buying stocks, futures, options, or investing in general.

The founder and Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of Bet on Combat Group LLC is M. Franco Richard, also known as Francombat, a dedicated income investor and successful entrepreneur. If you haven’t heard about him before, he is the guy from Montreal, Quebec who dropped out of college and started to bet his own money on the outcomes of fights and became a multi-millionaire by the age of 27. With unconventional business approaches, M. Richard has firmly established himself in the online gambling industry as the go-to experts on how to make money betting on fights. As of today, he has the longest running and most profitable combat sports betting record in the industry. Franco has proven that it's possible to become filthy rich outside Wall Street, and wagers over $100,000 a week on fights.

The CIO has a background in martial arts and worked as a oddsmaker and consultant for some of the world’s top sports books from Las Vegas to Antigua to Macau. Additionally, the CIO has worked in investment banking, private equity and venture capital across a range of industries. In response to the erratic nature of mainstream financial markets, coupled with the proliferation of betting exchanges such as Betfair (www.betfair.com) he identified the potential of profitably trading on the combat sports and event markets, leading to the establishment of Bet on Combat Group LLC in 2010.

A two-time World Kuoshu gold medalist M. Richard has participated in many Lei Tai tournaments all over the world, compiling an overall amateur record of 11–3. In each one, he has always ranked as one of the best in the Light Heavyweight division, thanks to his determination, incredible skills, and combative spirit. This background as a competitor give him a deeper understanding of the mental aspects of the fight game. Practicing martial arts and fighting experiences allows him to obtain the most intricate details in every facet of the combat sports.

A team of analysts with experience in sports and investment and professional qualifications in quantitative disciplines such as science, accounting and mathematics support the CIO through undertaking extensive statistical and trending analysis coupled with rigorous background research and market intelligence. Additionally, through the use of data scientists and IT specialists the Group have developed sport-specific algorithms that are used to identify value in all markets. The results of this research underpin all investment recommendations and decisions undertaken by Bet on Combat Group LLC.


How it works

The BOC Fund® is a pooled investment fund where investors buy shares (nominal value of USD$1000.00) in a private limited company registered in Gibraltar/Las Vegas that is managed by Bet on Combat Group LLC also based in Gibraltar/Las Vegas. The primary advantage of the fund being pooled is that it means each investor secures the same price for every trade, pro-rata depending on proportion of total FUM. Funds with segregated accounts permit the manager to “front run” and hence profit, risk free at the expense of their clients. This practice is impossible given the structure of the BOC Fund®.

The financial year end of the Fund is 31st December of each fiscal year.

The BOC Fund® is underpinned by extensive statistical and probability analysis to identify intrinsic value in the individual markets. Much the same as in more traditional financial markets, investments are only made when there is a clear differential in the intrinsic value in any individual selection and that offered by the market(s).

Once the intrinsic value has been identified the decision is made to either “back” the investment (“long position” in financial market parlance) or “lay” it (“short position”). As soon as a trade is “in-the-money” Bet on Combat Group LLC will look to either fully or partially trade out of its position, thereby securing an immediate profit and reducing its overall exposure. In the event that a market moves against our position a series of stop-loss orders will be executed in order to protect capital and mitigate losses.

The Fund is administered in much the same way as those in traditional financial markets. Extensive portfolio and risk management principles are strictly adhered to with the results independently audited. Interim monthly and quarterly returns are communicated to investors via the website Investor’s Area.

Additionally, investors can view their portfolio position at any time via the secured Investor’s Area as well as by text message prior to fight time.


Portfolio Investment Allocation

Our investment portfolio is spread out through a number of sports, events and competitions around the word. Our investment universe includes but is not limited to investing on international sports and events. Offering of the funds coincide with major combat sports leagues to include boxing (WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF), Kick-boxing, Muay Thai (Glory, K-1) and Mixed Martial Arts (UFC, Bellator, ONE Championship, Professional Fighter League, Invicta, Titan) and other sports, events and competitions. 

Because we are a combat sports and event investment fund, focused primarily on the combat sports betting market, the main Sports where the Fund is invested in are MMA, which represents 29% of the investment volume, Boxing 22% followed by Kick-Boxing with 14% and Muay Thai with 12%.

American Football represents 6% of the invested volume, while Ice Hockey has an 8% slice. Volleyball with 4% and eSports with 3% still represent meaningful parts of our investment portfolio. Sports here can be thought as Sectors, and our portfolio is well diversified across a number of them.

Investment Strategy & Risk Management

The Fund uses an approach that is grounded in historical statistical data to analyze investment opportunities across a number of global sports and events that are offered on global betting exchanges, registered bookmakers and regulated pari-mutuel licensees. In general, the Fund will trade long and short sports and event strategies that will have a directional component and relative value strategy. The Fund will utilize short and medium term time frames and will also include opportunistic intra-event trading as part of its overall strategy. Bet on Combat Group’s BOC Fund takes an even approach to investing by holding a diverse range of sport and event positions, providing good growth potential with a medium risk of short-term volatility.

The maximum exposure/liability for any opening pre-event trade is imposed at 3% of Assets Under Management (AUM). Such a trade will only be executed when there is greater than 25% perceived value in the market. Typical exposure/liability for pre-event trades is 1.25% AUM. In-play investment is restricted to a maximum exposure/liability of 1% of AUM owing to the reduced time to expiry of the trade. In both trade types the Fund will enter positions with the intention of maintaining them for the short to medium term unless market influences, new information or analysis make it prudent to exit the positions to realize profits or to stop or mitigate losses.

The Fund does not borrow, nor will it use leverage.

 

FIGURE 4: Trade Types (by turnover) 


Risk & Benefits

The BOC Fund’s risk factors are considerably more limited than the risks surrounding your usual Fund or any stock market investment. 

  • First as mentioned before, the performance of the BOC Fund is totally uncorrelated from any market factor, economic data or event. The correlation to financial benchmarks is 0.
  • There’s no risk of being stuck in a position due to limitations in liquidity, the BOC Fund only does pre-fight fixed odds bets (1% or so might be live bets). Capital is readily re-available for investment meaning that the BOC Fund is highly liquid being able to have 70% of its Funds Under Management in the Bank Account. While only 30% are needed in betting accounts to correspond to our daily investment requirements.
  • BOC Fund only works with top tier business partners, leaders in their fields and 200% warrantied. We trust our funds only to the most reputed bookmakers and bet brokers. The funds will be deposited always in international banks.
  • Risks to the development of the Fund’s investment activity are mainly at a legislative level. If somehow a wave of banning and limiting wagering on sports betting comes to shore, that could put into questioning whether the Fund’s existence still makes sense. Yet, the current trend is for the legalization of sports betting, and it is possible that in the next decade we see the legalization across all USA. That would increase liquidity in individual event markets exponentially, creating a market for an industry of sports betting investment funds to appear.
  • There is the hypothesis that the markets in the future will become so efficient there is no longer room to feasibly generate positive returns in the long term from sports betting. Theoretically the more money and participants come in the sharper market prices become, this would dilute the advantage possibly to 0 if the markets become that big.
  • As mentioned our investment portfolio is spread out through a number of sports and competitions. The main Sports where the Fund is invested in are Tennis, which represents 29% of the investment volume, Basket 22% followed by Football with 14% and Baseball with 12%.
  • American Football represents 6% of the invested volume, while Ice Hockey has an 8% slice. Volleyball with 4% and eSports with 3% still represent meaningful parts of our investment portfolio. Sports here can be thought as Sectors, and our portfolio is well diversified across a number of them.

5. What is entity sports wagering?
 
Entity sports wagering is a new State of Nevada sports investment product that was made legal by the Nevada legislature and signed into law by Governor Sandoval on June 2, 2015. The newly passed Senate Bill 443 allows Nevada entities (Nevada Sportsbooks to accept wagers from a pool of investors called “entities”) to place sports wagers with investment funds from their investors from anywhere in the world, similar to a hedge fund or mutual fund, that is managed by an approved fund manager who has complete control of all investment decisions and meets all requirements established by the Nevada Gaming Commission. The pools are open to US residents, regardless of where they live, but the entity itself must be operated by someone located in the state of Nevada. Similar to mutual funds there can be entities that specialize in certain areas of sports. The laws purpose is to increase tax revenue due to the increased sports betting handle, slow the flow of American money being spent offshore with illegal bookmakers and create transparency in the domestic sports betting market. The law is now over a year old and progress has been slow adapting it to the sports betting scene in the state. This will change rapidly as the firms begin to show consistent returns, more entities get vetted, and additional sports book operators become involved. BOC Fund® is one of this new investment vehicle similar to a mutual or hedge fund, which returns has outperformed since its inception the top performing hedge funds on Wall Street. This form of investing is so new that the individuals getting involved now will shape the future of the sport wagering industry.

CG Technology is the sports book operator for the entity sports wagering program, which is the largest bookmaker in Las Vegas. They are the entity that accepts the entity investments tendered by the fund. CG is the equivalent of the NYSE or NASDAQ. They’re the exchange promoting market liquidity. CG’s sportsbook locations include the Venetian, the M Resort, and the Cosmopolitan, among others. You may see their website at www.cgtglobal.com. As additional sportsbooks come online BOC Fund will negotiate contracts to place wagers in their sports books also.

  • Tax-Free: The Bet on Combat Investment Fund provides investment returns that are tax-free, thus making the effective return superior to other investment products.

10. Why should I invest in the BOC Fund and not just bet on my own?

We've seen a lot of bettors come and go over the years. The top reasons why bettors fail are 1) lack of proper education and 2) betting without enough capital. The Bet on Combat Investment Fund solves both these issues and levels the playing field.

Plus, the Bet on Combat Investment Fund is an opportunity to trade with huge amounts of betting capital with NO annoying PDT Rule restriction like in the Stock Market.

11. What kind of bets does Bet on Combat Investment Fund make?

BOC Fund® is a sports investment fund, focused primarily on the combat sports betting market. We are an exclusive combat sports investment fund. Our investment universe includes international boxing (WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF), Kick-boxing, Muay Thai (Glory, K-1) and Mixed Martial Arts (UFC, Bellator, ONE Championship, Professional Fighter League, Invicta, Titan). We will also consider others international events where appropriate.

12. Why only combat sports?

Simply because combat sports provides an ideal combination of profitable opportunities with sufficiently high betting limits. We do plan to expand to other sports in future years.

13. Can I find out the investment selections made?

Yes! You may opt to receive all investment selections via text 5-10 minutes before fight time. This will give you a rooting interest. We will send you notifications with game picks and we will provide updates on how your fund increases real-time. You will have transparency during and after all the action, making the experience easy and fun. Our database will be updated with all wagers and reflected in your account through our website www.BetonCombat.com. Stay tuned for our IOS and Android compatible app launching soon which will allow you to monitor your funds on the go.

14. What is Bet on Combat Investment Fund strategy and objective?

The objective of the funds is to mitigate much of the risk inherent with combat sports event betting and generate returns in excess of the major American & UK stock market and global hedge fund indices.  

15. How does BOC Fund compare to investing in stocks/bonds?

BOC investors profited 82.1% in 2016 and generated an average annual return of 49.28% since inception! On most months, we've not only outperformed the S&P 500 index and every mutual fund, but have generated for our client’s more superior returns than they could have made off any other types of investment!

There’s a higher risk betting on combat sports than investing in bonds or T-bills, but when done correctly under a proven and disciplined bankroll system, it is safe and the rewards are much greater! Not to mention, it's infinitely more fun to wager on and profit from combat sports than stocks.

16. Can sports investing help with long-term wealth?

The single driving vision behind BOC Fund®, is the desire to enable and cultivate investing for young North Americans. Wealth disparity is at an all time high, while investing is at an all time low. BOC Fund® creates a fun experience, that scientifically has shown to be a superior alternative asset class compared to Wall St. investments, and grows the long-term wealth of its customers.

17. What is the duration of the investment required to achieve the goal of performance?

BOC Fund® focuses its activities on creating portfolios flexible, one-year or multi-year characterized by a rebalancing of the same at the beginning of each new year.

18. Does the Global market provide enough liquidity for an investment in an asset class of this type?

  • The short answer is yes. Global on-line investment was upward of US$144 billion in 2017*. This provides sufficient liquidity and opportunity for Bet on Combat to operate without having a detrimental effect on either the markets or the potential investment returns.
  • The medium term target for total funds under management is $USD40 million. This figure is based on the current size of the global sports investing market, assumes minimal growth in this sector**, and the ability to readily deploy assets without materially effecting the markets within which BOC Fund® operates.
* Price water house Coopers study
** Bet on Combat Group has intentionally been very conservative in ascertaining targeted funds under management.

19. If BOC Fund has such good money-making systems and opportunities, then why the need to seek additional investors?

  • BOC Fund® was started solely with the founder’s capital. Bet on Combat management & shareholders still account for over 30% of FUM. Additional investment provides the advantages associated with scaling the business and allows access to many more investment opportunities.
  • The infrastructure and organization that was developed to deploy the initial capital can readily be used to “run” the targeted USD$40 million. It makes business and commercial sense to utilize more fully the existing infrastructure.

20. What is the investment structure and regulation of my investment?

Bet on Combat Group

  • One is not investing in shares in the Bet on Combat Group itself, but rather shares in an investment fund that is being managed by Bet on Combat Group.
  • Bet on Combat Group will maintain a register of all investors and their respective interests in the investment fund.

36. Why do other entity wagering firms call themselves mutual funds?
 
They likely have not performed sufficient due diligence to understand that they are not actually mutual funds and shouldn't refer to themselves as such. Simply calling such a company a "fund" is fine, but "mutual fund" would in fact be misleading investors.
 
37. How do I know my investment is safe?
 
Online Notary is the answer. That’s right! we partnered up with Notarize.com to integrate their service with our investors. Now you don’t have to take a trip to the nearest post office or bank to notarize your application. Simply click through the wizard and you’re done. Deposits are safe and securely made via Stripe. All parties will have records of all wire transfers for a clean and simplified paper trail.
 
38. Is my personal info safe and why do I need to provide personal information?
 
Our site offers the latest SSL encryption to keep your personal information safe. Just like opening an account in person at a sportsbook, personal information is required to invest.
 
39. Will I have to pay income tax on my investments?
 
No. This is a non-taxable investment.
 
40. Is there any risk?
 
  • As with any investment there is always the risk of losing your investments. Past performance cannot guarantee future results. We strongly advise all interested parties to seek financial advice prior to investing.
  • BOC Fund is committed to mitigating risk by exercising strict discipline in implementing our strategy, performing extensive analysis on the lines and limiting wagers to 5% of the fund value.
