CoinShares (Nasdaq Stockholm: CS) announced the CoinShares Hedge Fund Solutions division, as part of their mission to continue bridging the gap “between traditional institutional investors and the dynamic world of digital assets.”
For the first time, CoinShares will be making its offerings “accessible to qualified U.S. investors through a range of private investment products.”

CoinShares was founded by Daniel Masters, Russell Newton, and Jean-Marie Mognetti (CEO of CoinShares), seasoned traders with experience in the world’s top banks.
They established the first listed and regulated Bitcoin active fund in 2014, which “delivered over 800% growth in performance, net of fees.”
Since then, CoinShares has been “shaping the future of investing as Europe’s leading European alternative asset manager specializing in digital assets.”
Their skilled team of professionals specializes in asset allocation, investment, risk management, market analysis, legal, compliance and accounting for digital assets.
