The digital currency based ETP provider Amon AG made progress in Sweden this week when the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (SFSA) approved its base prospectus. A base prospectus essentially describes an offer so that a company can apply for registration in the same way as traditional ETPs based on securities currently traded on the regulated market. Amon said in a Press statement After SFSA approval, the company is happy to confirm its plans to expand its digital currency-based ETPs. Amun already provides Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) that track digital currencies and a variety of Amun crypto ETPs are traded on the Swiss Stock Exchange.
âOur mission is clear and is to help investors invest more securely, profitably and easily in crypto asset classes through our crypto ETPs. We are very fortunate to have completed this process within four months of its consultation period, âAmun President Ms. Ophelia Snyder said during the announcement. Snyder added:
We recognize that the Swedish regulatory framework has supported such initiatives and welcome its deliberations.
At present, Amun manages a multitude of crypto ETPs which are traded on the main Swiss exchange SIX. Amun recently partnered with Swiss Bitcoin in October to offer ETP Amun Bitcoin Suisse (ticker: ABBA) a fund that tracks the prices of both ETH and BTC. Then, Amun also offers the ETP âHODLâ which consists of a basket of five different digital currencies.
It also offers an ETP for the Bitwise Select 10, the Sygnum d’Amun platform winners index, and six single-tracking ETPs that use ETH, BNB, XRP, BCH, XTZ, and BTC. However, Amun’s SFSA approval announcement does not disclose which ETPs the company will list or which exchanges it will use in Europe. Amun works with regulators across the EU and the company says there is a strong demand in Sweden for crypto-based investment vehicles.
“The combination of strong demand for ETP in Sweden – particularly in crypto assets – among private investors and institutional clients and our strong expertise in these product categories create ideal conditions for Amun’s entry into the Swedish and European Union markets for FTEs, âSnyder added. .
Amun’s EU-approved Swedish prospectus will help the company gain a foothold in Europe. The SFSA approval shows that digital asset-related investment funds continue to enter the world of traditional finance. In the first week of December, Amun’s cash-settled ETP faced competition on the Swiss exchange SIX when New York-based Wisdom Tree listed its physically settled bitcoin ETP.
