BPS provides clients the opportunity to invest in digital assets with the same peace of mind and security that has become synonymous with the Blockchain name.”[/perfectpullquote]
Through BPS, investors will have access to an over-the-counter (OTC) trading desk which offers a white-glove trading service led by a team hailing from Cooley, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and UBS. The OTC desk also operates as a matchmaker and direct counterparty to clients, executing trades and managing associated risk.
In addition to trading, BPS provides clients a customized portfolio view, as well as exclusive insights into market fundamentals, risk metrics, and access to a research team that includes leading cryptocurrency economist, Garrick Hileman. Clients will be able to explore a variety of managed investment offerings including the opportunity to make direct equity investments into promising companies in the larger digital asset ecosystem, as well as gain access to early stage token offerings – all sourced and vetted through Blockchain’s global network.
