Crypto assets firm Anchorage Digital expands into Asia

PartnershipCrypto assets firm Anchorage Digital has announced a push into the Asian market with a series of partnerships with local firms. The five partners include Singapore-based digital asset manager FBG Capital and Hong Kong-based venture capital firm IOSG Ventures. The consortium is completed by digital asset service provider Antalpha, asset manager Dream Trade and crypto exchange Bitkub. The move has been inspired by the high rate of digital assets adoption within the region. A report published earlier this month by Cerulli Associates stated that 55% of family offices in Asia intend to increase their exposure to crypto assets over the next two years. Meanwhile, Anchorage co-founder and president Diogo Monica has said that he expects Asia to represent 25% of the company’s business by 2024. “We look forward to deepening our relationships in the region to bring customized solutions and secure, regulated custody to Asia’s most important financial institutions — further expanding access to digital assets in this critical market,” stated Anchorage.   © 2022 funds global asia
