21Shares Bitcoin ETP Offered To Scandinavian Investors Via Nordnet AB
21 September 2020 - Stockholm | Zurich - 21Shares AG, the world’s leading issuer of crypto Exchange Traded Products (ETP), is bolstering its offering to Swedish and Scandinavian
investors via Nordnet Bank’s digital platform for savings and investments.
As of last week, the two approved Xetra listings of 21Shares are available on Nordnet's platform allowing investors to access more transparent and cost effective products with exposure to bitcoin.
With the 21Shares Bitcoin and Short Bitcoin ETP, 21Shares is paving the way for further expansion and is committed to providing the highest quality products to a community that is already well
established. For the first time, Scandinavian investors are now in a position to take advantage of a product that gives them a positive performance when the price of bitcoin drops for a short
period of time as well as a long bitcoin exposure with a low management fees of 1.49% (ABTC) per annum using conventional products they have been accustomed to for many years. This follows the
success of its eleven other institutional grade crypto exchange-traded products and further cements its status as the specialist firm having the most expansive regulated product suite of crypto
assets listed on stock exchanges in Europe.
Scandinavian investors were the first in Europe to enjoy crypto structured products and with time, institutional acceptance filled the market with more manufactured institutional grade products that offer added security, transparency and mostly reduced costs. With over 70% of AuM from institutional investors , 21Shares is delighted to have its products offered via a trusted and recognised broker in Sweden.
“Sweden has always been a special place for me as it was the first EU country to allow a bitcoin structure to be admitted on the Nasdaq Nordic exchange back in 2015, it is now time to present the market with the latest engineered products that are fully compliant, transparent and cost effective using crypto as underlyings. We are delighted to be working with Nordnet as their clients have always been keen users of such trading products ” said Laurent Kssis, Managing Director at 21Shares in charge of the Swedish expansion and whose foray into engineered crypto vehicles is not new in the Swedish market having listed ETNs on Nasdaq Stockholm and NGM.
