Omniex, an institutionally focused investment and trading platform for digital assets, announced this week it received an investment, as well as formed a strategic partnership with Swiss infrastructure and exchange platform, SIX – the operator of the Swiss Exchange, the principal stock exchange based in Zurich.
Founded in 2017, Omniex describes itself as an institutional operating platform for investment managers and active traders focused on crypto-assets. The platform offers a complete solution for the investment and trading of crypto-assets.
“Our suite of services, from portfolio & order management to risk & data analytics to connectivity & execution are specifically built with institutional clients in mind, tailored for crypto-assets. We are strong believers that the crypto-asset class is here to stay. We’ve worked hand-in-hand with new crypto specific funds to large multi-asset managers looking to enter this market. In order to pave the way for large-scale institutional adoption of this asset class, the market needs a platform that has the same reliability, stability, performance and features that the institutional market has come to expect.”
Speaking about the partnership, Hu Liang, CEO and Co-Founder Omniex, stated;
“The Swiss market leads other major financial markets in the adoption of legislation and regulation supporting digital asset trading and settlement. Together with SIX we aim to offer an end-to-end solution for the trading and settlement of digital assets, including the SIX Digital Exchange (SDX), once operationally live. It will still take some time, but the cornerstones are in place to accelerate the broader adoption of natively digitalized assets.”
Thomas Zeeb, Head Securities & Exchanges, member of Executive Board, SIX, added:
“We see a growing need in the market to access crypto currencies. Our new collaboration will provide a standardized and secure gateway via SIX as the trusted partner of the financial industry. With SDX as the digital exchange infrastructure in development, the collaboration with Omniex to deliver the front end for clients, both for existing crypto currencies, as well as in future for SDX-listed assets, is an important addition to the digital ecosystem.”
Specific details on the investment have not been disclosed.
