DWS and Galaxy enter strategic alliance to develop digital asset management solutions in Europe


DWS and Galaxy Digital Holdings have entered into a strategic alliance with the aim of initially developing a comprehensive suite of ETPs on certain digital assets in Europe. The strategic allies plan to also subsequently explore other digital asset solutions.

The pair writes that as the digital asset market continues to mature, DWS and Galaxy’s asset management unit will work together to provide European investors access to the USD ~1 trillion digital assets market through cost effective investment solutions that are easy to access via traditional brokerage accounts. 

For DWS, this alliance fulfils a key priority to develop comprehensive digital solutions, unlocking investor access to the growing blockchain and digital assets universe. DWS will be Galaxy’s exclusive ally for cryptocurrency ETPs in the European market. This alliance is expected to significantly enhance Galaxy’s international distribution capabilities by deepening access to European investors who are keen to participate in the digital assets market.

“This alliance brings together two firms with unparalleled collective experience in building and pioneering innovative investment solutions across both traditional and digital asset markets,” says Fiona Bassett, Global Head of Systematic Investment Solutions at DWS. “As we see increasing client interest in digital assets and the need for secure access, our shared education-first approach and commitment to providing clients with access via well-known and trusted investment vehicles will enable us to build thoughtfully constructed and thoroughly researched products. We look forward to working with Galaxy to further accelerate international adoption of the digital asset economy.”

“Galaxy’s mission is to empower investors across the globe with simple and secure access to the digital asset ecosystem, through best-in-class education and institutional-grade products,” says Steve Kurz, Global Head of Asset Management at Galaxy. “By allying with DWS, one of the most successful and innovative asset management firms in the world, we are excited to enhance our ability to deliver comprehensive solutions to European investors, empowering them to tap into the vast potential and promise of blockchain technology and digital assets in a safe and convenient manner.”

The pair writes that the alliance is expected to combine DWS’s strong portfolio management, product structuring, and distribution expertise across liquid and illiquid asset classes with Galaxy’s technical infrastructure and its asset management and research capabilities for digital assets. The alliance aims to be a catalyst for both firms to jointly profit from emerging digital asset opportunities.
