BitSpread launches new range of capital protected crypto strategies

RELATED TOPICS​

BitSpread, a blockchain asset research and advisory firm, has launched a new range of capital protected crypto investment strategies.

It is believed to be the first time that capital protected investment strategies using sophisticated derivatives have been utilised in the crypto space.
 
The strategies, which have been produced by experts in financial engineering, offer investors the opportunities to participate in the upside of Bitcoin while having a significant proportion of the capital protected on the downside.
 
Cedric Jeanson, founder and CEO of BitSpread, says; “BitSpread is the first firm in the space to provide institutional quality capital protected investing strategies which limit the downside while providing exposure to the potential upside of crypto currencies. This is a new and unique way to invest into crypto, providing a more sophisticated investing approach than, for instance, exposure to the pure market beta from investing directly in cryptos, futures or ETFs and taking the associated volatility and risk of capital loss. We believe this smarter way of investing in crypto currencies is the future.”
 
It follows the launch in November last year of BitSpread Financial Solutions (BFS), a new division which specialises in financial engineering, customised investments, and hedging and financing solutions for blockchain assets for professional investors.
 
Lionel Fournier, CEO of BitSpread Financial Solutions, says; “This opens the door for professional investors to start allocating to a nascent asset class using sophisticated investment tools. This asset class offers significant upside potential and diversification benefits for investor portfolios and the downside risk can now be better managed. Capital protection strategies are suitable for investors who take an interest in crypto as an asset class but who value capital preservation and do not wish to invest in a purely directional way.”
 
In May last year, BitSpread also announced its new BlockBerry wealth management platform. The BlockBerry platform offers exclusive access to sophisticated investments in crypto-currencies. Investments can be made using cash or crypto currencies, deposited with a regulated custodian.
 
BitSpread Financial Solutions operates within a regulated framework, as it is an Appointed Representative (AR) of Met Facilities LLP, which is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
