AIMA publishes new guide on digital asset trading

The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), with KPMG and digital asset investors and industry experts, has added to its wide-ranging sound practice toolkit with the publication of a new industry guide on digital asset trading for institutional investors.

As a follow up to last year’s AIMA industry guide on digital asset custody and the recent publication of a new set of AIMA due diligence questionnaires for digital asset investment managers, this latest industry guide aims to provide an overview of the digital asset trading ecosystem and lifecycle, as well as highlight some key enterprise risks and due diligence considerations for institutional investors determining whether and how to trade digital assets.

For those looking to expand or diversify their investments in digital assets, AIMA’s new guide will contribute to its growing body of digital asset related industry resources, which are relatively scarce compared to sound practice literature for traditional finance. 

Co-sponsored by KPMG, the guide was produced with contributions from Albourne Partners, Anchorage Digital, Bittrex Global, BlockFills, Coinbase, CoinRoutes, Copper, Dagger Consulting, Finery Markets, GSR, Kroll, Lenz & Staehelin, RSM, Simmons & Simmons and Trovio Group.

The guide is the initiative of AIMA’s Digital Assets Working Group (AIMA DAWG) – a cross section of senior industry experts including managers, allocators and service providers. It is tasked with driving AIMA’s regulatory engagement, thought-leadership initiatives and operational guidance in the area of digital assets.
