Crypto Finance AG, a leading provider of institutional-grade investment solutions, custody, and brokerage for digital assets, and part of Deutsche Börse Group, partners with Apex Group, a global financial services provider, to offer institutional-grade crypto products.

The demand for crypto-related investment products is expected to grow in line with the exponential development of this new asset class. Therefore, trusted and regulated providers across the entire product value chain are critical to the health and development of the digital asset ecosystem.

Crypto Finance Group is the trusted, and prudentially FINMA regulated partner of financial institutions. Its market-leading, integrated platform enables access to invest in, manage, trade, and store digital assets securely. Crypto Finance will provide Apex Group with an institutional-grade infrastructure in the digital assets markets, starting with an issuance program for structured products backed by digital assets.

This partnership will provide professional and institutional investors with a secure way to issue their own crypto-related investment products. Banks, asset managers, family offices, and other professional investors can now access an institutional-grade, trusted, and regulated offering for tailored crypto-related investment products such as exchange traded products (ETPs) and actively managed certificates (AMCs). The first products of this cooperation will be launched in early Q2 of this year.

Apex Group will leverage Crypto Finance’s digital assets infrastructure, adding to Apex Group’s existing administration, trustee, NAV reporting, and other administrative services for the issuance of structured products. As Apex Group will operate a Swiss independent securitization SPV, this partnership will equally benefit Crypto Finance and offer a robust set-up with limited counterparty risk.

Jan Brzezek, Founder and CEO of Crypto Finance Group, states: “We are excited to partner with Apex Group, as our two companies ideally complement each other to build out institutional-grade infrastructure in this new asset class. The partnership with Apex Group combines the expertise in our respective fields to offer professional investors trusted partners to help them set up their crypto-related investment products.”

Bruce Jackson, Chief of Digital Asset Funds and Business at Apex Group, comments: “We chose to partner with Crypto Finance, part of Deutsche Börse Group, as they share our understanding of the importance of creating a robust institutional framework to meet the needs and regulatory obligations of institutional investors. Today’s announcement is an important next step in our global strategy of institutionalising digital markets, enabling institutional capital to access this digital asset class within the same secure and regulated framework they are familiar with from the traditional financial markets.”
