Grayscale Investments, the world’s largest digital currency asset manager, has hired Dave LaValle as Global Head of ETFs.

In this new role, LaValle will work to meet investor demand for single asset trusts and diversified funds while also creating the future of digital currency-based ETFs. Additionally, Grayscale just announced the launch of Grayscale Advisors, RIA that will build upon the existing product line-up to ensure that investors have a secure, transparent, and familiar way to deploy capital.

LaValle led Nasdaq’s Exchange Traded Product Marketplace where he was responsible for all aspects of strategy and business development for Nasdaq’s ETP listing and trading businesses.
