Diginex bolsters digital asset offering with acquisition of Altairian Group

Hong Kong, December 19, 2018: Diginex, a global blockchain solutions and financial services company, has acquired 100% of the London-based Altairian Group, which offers insured custody of digital assets alongside asset management services.

The custody service will be launched in the UK in Q1 2019 and targets institutional investors. It benefits from liability covered policies that are underwritten by Altairian’s London-based A-rated underwriting partners.

Mr. Richard Byworth, CEO at Diginex, said: “This acquisition aligns with our core vision of providing the infrastructure required to allow for institutional adoption of the digital asset class. The platform’s foundation of insured custody completes the expanding Diginex ecosystem of asset management, trading and exchange, and corporate finance. This effective synthetic bank grade custody provides a bridge to the impending arrival of traditional custodians, and a plug and play solution when they do finally arrive.”

As part of the acquisition the Altairian team will join Diginex’s financial services division.

Mr. James Harris, Co-Founder of Altairian, said: “We believe that allowing safe access to digital assets, either directly via custody services or passively with insured tracker funds, will be instrumental to their adoption as an investible asset class.”

COMMENT

I have seen that nowadays, more and more people will be attracted to digital cameras and the discipline of photography. However, being a photographer, you will need to first expend so much of your time deciding the model of photographic camera to buy plus moving from store to store just so you might buy the most inexpensive camera of the trademark you have decided to choose. But it isn’t going to end there. You also have take into consideration whether you can purchase a digital video camera extended warranty. Many thanks for the good points I received from your site.
