PRESS RELEASE | LEONTEQ NOW OFFERS 22 CRYPTO ASSETS ON ITS PLATFORM
Zurich, 29 September 2021
Leonteq today announces that it has further expanded its digital asset offering to a total of 22 crypto assets in the DACH region.
Leonteq today is adding four new crypto assets to its platform. Tracker certificates with Solana, Compound, 0x and Yearn.Finance as underlyings are now available for Swiss investors as products listed on SIX Swiss Exchange as well as products without listing, and for German and Austrian investors as listed products on Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG. At the same time, Leonteq launched products based on Filecoin, EOS, Aave, Algorand and Cosmos as listed tracker certificates on BX Swiss.
With this expansion, Leonteq further strengthens its market leading position in offering crypto assets in a securitised format. Today, institutional and retail investors in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) can select products from the largest available universe with a total of 22 crypto assets, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Ethereum, and Ripple, on Leonteq's platform for investment solutions.
Tino Wendisch, Managing Director and Head Crypto Offering at Leonteq, stated: "As we are continuously expanding our offering in this emerging asset class, investors can select between a broad range of different crypto assets and their different business models. With the recent additions, our universe represents more than 90% of the total market capitalization of all crypto assets, excluding stablecoins."
Leonteq's crypto asset offering brings several advantages for both institutional and retail investors:
As a leading provider of innovative investment solutions, Leonteq has been a pioneer in offering structured products on crypto assets by issuing tracker certificates on the main crypto assets since 2017 in Switzerland. Leonteq also offered its clients the world's first short tracker certificate on Bitcoin in 2017, the first exchange traded actively managed strategy in 2018 as well as the world's first reverse convertible on Bitcoin in 2019, and has won the Swiss Derivative Award for alternative underlyings two years in a row.
