RELATED TOPICS​

CoinShares has launched a new physically-backed ETP, CoinShares Physical Ethereum (ETHE), the second product released on company’s’ institutional-grade ETP platform.

Each of ETHE, which will launch with approximately USD75 million in assets under management, is backed with 0.03 ether at launch, providing investors with passive exposure to Ethereum’s native asset with the convenience of an ETP.
 
ETHE will initially be listed on the regulated SIX Swiss Exchange and has a base fee of 1.25%, establishing ETHE an attractive option for institutional investors looking for an accessible ethereum investment vehicle with a fee below the industry standard of 2 per cent. The product will be readily available to investors as its AUM at launch surpasses the baseline requirements for institutional and corporate investment consideration.
 
Head of Product Townsend Lansing says: “Our second product launch this year brings the world’s second-largest digital asset to our new CoinShares Physical platform. Bringing innovative products like ETHE allows us to continue setting the industry standard for trust and transparency and provide institutions with easy access to industry leading crypto investment vehicles.”
 
Chief Revenue Officer Frank Spiteri says: “In the early days of 2021, we have seen a continuation of last year’s demand in digital assets from institutions. We have also seen an increase in investor interest in ethereum. We are encouraged by our client’s trust in our team to guide them in their journey through the digital asset ecosystem, and for many, ethereum is an important part of that journey.”
