On 6th April in Miami, Blockchain.com, one of the world’s oldest and most widely used cryptocurrency platforms for individuals and institutions, announced the launch of a new crypto asset management platform with Jersey-based investment Manager, Altis Partners. The new platform is called Blockchain.com Asset Management (BCAM), which offers regulated investment products for institutional investors, family offices, and high net worth individuals. While Blockchain.com provides the crypto trading infrastructure, research, security, and software services, the investments will be managed by Altis Partners.
Combining Altis’ long-proven automated trading infrastructure with Blockchain.com’s deep crypto knowledge, the platform will launch with a suite of index and systematic products including a BTC Tracker and BTC Smart Beta. The BTC Tracker tracks Bitcoin’s price versus USD, providing cheap, efficient exposure to bitcoin, while BTC Smart Beta offers an algorithm-based risk-managed exposure to bitcoin that reduces volatility and drawdowns. The platform aims to bring the highest standards of risk management and client service to crypto investment products, allowing its products to be seamlessly integrated into sophisticated investment portfolios.
The business is led by Altis Partners’ Principals, Stephen Hedgecock, Alex Brunwin and Charles McGarraugh who maintains his current executive role at Blockchain.com. The seasoned executive team brings a combined 90 years of traditional finance and crypto experience to the business.
“BCAM combines the very best of old-world financial markets with the new world of crypto,” said Charles McGarraugh, Altis Partners Chief Investment Officer. “The advent of distributed ledger technologies and crypto assets has the potential to facilitate radical disintermediation on a massive scale, forever changing the structure of financial services and global capital markets while presenting new opportunities for investors.”
“We’re excited to partner with a legacy crypto-native firm like Blockchain.com to bring BCAM to market” said Stephen Hedgecock, Altis Partners Founding Principal and CEO. “This platform is further evidence of the increasing appeal of institutional grade crypto investment vehicles, and we are delighted to make it available to our sophisticated client base.”
