TORONTO, June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – DeFi Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “DeFi Technologies“) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJR) (OTC: DEFTF) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Valour Structured Products (“Valour“), has today signed a Letter of Intent with Arcane Crypto’s wholly owned subsidiary Arcane Assets AS (“Arcane Assets“) with the intention to explore the issuance and listing of an Exchange-Traded Product (ETP) based on Arcane’s cryptocurrency fund. The ETP would be the first to have a cryptocurrency fund as an underlying asset and the market provides exciting expansion possibilities for both the Arcane Fund and Valour. Valour and Arcane Assets are working on a definitive partnership agreement and a plan for issuance and expect these to be completed later this year.
Torbjørn Bull Jenssen CEO of Arcane Crypto AS said of the partnership “Valour has successfully launched several ETPs tracking cryptocurrencies in the past and is an ideal partner for us. By joining forces, our intention is to bring a truly new and innovative product to market, lowering the frictions associated with cryptocurrency investments.”
Valour (a wholly owned subsidiary of DeFi Technologies Inc.) is an issuer of ETPs that track underlying digital assets and the ETPs are listed on regulated European stock exchanges. This enables investors to easily gain exposure to this emerging asset class through their regular bank or broker like Avanza and Nordnet.
An ETP based on the Arcane Fund would work in the same way. In other words, investors would be able to buy and sell the ETP through their broker, which would track the performance of the Arcane Fund.
Eric Wall, CIO of Arcane Assets commented “We’re constructing this as an ideal one-stop shop solution for investors’ entire cryptocurrency exposure based on active portfolio management. We use all the market intelligence on a daily basis to offer the best kind of product, and investors can potentially gain exposure to our portfolio through an ISK (Investeringssparkonto) savings account.”
Diana Biggs CEO of Valour commented “We’re delighted to be partnering with Arcane to launch the world’s first fund-based crypto ETP. Arcane Assets bring unparalleled knowledge of cryptocurrencies both from a technology and an investment perspective, rightly placing them as one of the most well-respected hedge funds in this space, and this product partnership is a key milestone in our ongoing mission to provide investors of all types with access to the most innovative and highest quality digital asset ETPs.”
