TP ICAP Digital Assets trades first crypto asset equity instruments

RELATED TOPICS​

Liquidity providers TP ICAP has achieved what it describes as a major milestone in its Digital Assets business with the first trades completed on crypto asset equity instruments with Goldman Sachs.

The company’s Digital Assets business traded the ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (Bloomberg Ticker BTCE GY) on an outright basis and against the CME Bitcoin Future in the form of an EFP (Exchange for Physical). The firm writes that crypto ETP market makers DRW, Flow Traders and Jane Street provided liquidity.

TP ICAP is actively providing liquidity to its clients across the CME Bitcoin and Ether Futures and Bitcoin Options and is expanding its product offering alongside partners such as Goldman Sachs.
The firm writes that there has been a meaningful increase in CME Bitcoin Futures volumes following the recent approvals of the first US Bitcoin Futures based ETFs. TP ICAP expects to see continued interest across crypto asset- based futures and options products and an interbank NDF (Non-deliverable forward) market develop on Bitcoin, and potentially Ether, throughout the course of 2022.

Simon Forster, Co-Head of TP ICAP Digital Assets, says: “We’re delighted to start providing liquidity for clients in these European crypto asset equity instruments alongside Goldman Sachs and some of the most respected market makers in the space. We look forward to adding further equity instruments and to start providing our clients with access to crypto asset ETFs out of the US in the near future. We’ve seen increasing interest in crypto assets products this year as it continues to mature and institutionalise as an asset class. We expect to see more growth and more demand for these kinds of products in 2022.”

Bernardus Roelofs, Head of ETF and Institutional Sales & Trading at DRW, says: ”We are excited to provide liquidity to TP ICAP to meet the growing institutional demand for crypto exchange traded products (ETPs) from sophisticated market participants such as Goldman Sachs. As a leading global market maker in crypto ETPs, spot and derivatives, we look forward to expanding the partnership and serving as a source of trusted, deep liquidity as institutional demand for the products offered on the platform continues to increase.”
