Jersey-based CoinShares is taking another step towards expanding in the U.S. market. The company has launched a new hedge fund division to offer broader access to American investors.
CoinShares International Ltd, with its new division named “CoinShares Hedge Fund Solutions“, will provide specialized investment strategies for qualified American investors. With this expansion, an enrichment of the company’s product portfolio is anticipated.
“We Responded to the Growing Demand in the Digital Asset Space…”
The company’s CEO, Jean-Marie Mognetti, emphasized the increasing demand in the digital asset space and CoinShares’ dedication in this area. He also underscored their commitment to delivering a high-quality experience.
“In a changing macro environment prominently marked by interest rates and inflation, the demand for actively managed exposure to digital assets is a natural progression. Backed by a decade-long legacy in the digital asset industry and a team with more than two decades in hedge funds, the new division signifies the latest step in CoinShares’ evolution. Our products focus on delivering a premium experience to our investors and we are delighted to enrich our long-only asset management offerings by returning to our core founding program.”
Lewis Fellas, appointed to head the new hedge fund division, is a recognized figure in the industry with 23 years of experience. Expressing his trust in CoinShares and the honor of leading this new division, Fellas stated, “CoinShares inspired my transition into crypto asset management in 2016.” He further noted that the new funds are designed to present clear asset class and strategy risks to investors, thereby reducing counterparty risks.
