Browsing Vault information
Do the diligence before you deposit!
Once you've narrowed your search using the Savers launchpad, clicking into a product page gives you a wealth of information. It can be divided broadly into three sections. Before we get into those, however, note that all numbers displayed on this page are measured in the currency you've selected in the settings menu in the top right corner of the screen.
The top portion of a product's page shows you its performance over time, as well as some basic headline information.
The drop down menu in the top right corner of the chart allows you to show the product's share price or its assets under management. The monthly return table breaks out the performance of the share price into monthly increments (against the currency of your choosing).
Below the Monthly Return table you'll find the product's current holdings.
The bottom of the page lets you get into the weeds, with various sections that show the rules that govern how the Vault operates, it's trading history, who has bought shares, and more.
The Factsheet lays out the smart contract addresses for this specific product, as well as the name, inception date, and denomination asset (more on that later). It also displays any additional information the manager has decided to make available. Managers can put contact information in this section; if they've chosen to do so and you are interested in investing in their product, certainly go ahead and reach out to them.
The Financials section quantifies a few more risk metrics, as well as current information about the product's assets under management and share supply.
The Fees section lays out exactly how much you'll pay in fees to buy shares of this product.
The Ruleset section shows the product's configuration. The product's manager can leave this section totally blank, in which case anyone can invest in the product, and the product has no restrictions on where it can allocate investor funds. However, there are a number of configurations that the manager can enable at the smart contract level that change the product's risk and investor profiles. The example above shows a product with every potential configuration enabled. In reality, managers will use some lesser combination of these configurations. As an investor, it's important to think about how the product is configured and whether it fits your risk profile. A discussion of each configuration from the Manager's perspective can be found here.
The Investors section shows the Ethereum addresses that hold shares in the fund, and the Investments section, below, shows when they acquired them.
Finally, the Trades section shows the product's transaction history - what it's bought, sold, loaned, et cetera.
