CoinShares International, a European alternative asset manager specialising in digital assets, has launched a new hedge fund division, CoinShares Hedge Fund Solutions, and for the first time will be making its offerings available to qualified US investors via a range of private investment products.
CoinShares says it is committed to becoming the premier destination for institutions in the digital assets realm. By offering a diverse range of products, across the spectrum of beta and alpha strategies with hybrids in between, CoinShares says it is aiming to cater to the specific needs of each institution, and the creation of a “well-rounded and optimised crypto portfolio”.
The company’s vision is to deliver a “seamless, holistic experience”, ensuring that its institutional clients have all the tools and insights they need to navigate the world of digital asset investments. CoinShares Capital, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CoinShares and a broker-dealer registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), will be conducting marketing activities to qualified investors in the United States in support of CoinShares Hedge Fund Solutions’ strategies and products.
CoinShares has appointed Lewis Fellas, a seasoned asset manager with 23 years of industry experience – seven in digital assets – as Head of CoinShares Hedge Fund Solutions.
Starting life originally as the commodity hedge fund Global Advisors, CoinShares later founded the regulated Global Advisors Bitcoin Investment Fund (GABI) in 2014, which operated until 2017.
