By Jenny Aurora | August 17, 2021

Financial Company from Switzerland Leonteq has reportedly rolled out an investment suite supporting 18 crypto assets, which primarily cater to institutional investors across Germany and Austria.

Specifically, after successfully widening its scope of crypto offerings across its headquarter country Switzerland, Leonteq, via a newly formed alliance with ICF Bank – a top-tier German securities trading banks – is establishing an access gateway into crypto for Germany and Austria-based investors, via this new solution. 

Widely acknowledged for its privileged status in the Swiss markets, including securing the title of the “world’s first short tracker certificate on Bitcoin in 2017, as well as the world’s first reverse convertible on Bitcoin in 2019”, Leonteq now embarks on a new journey to expand its services across the sector. 

Via the new agreement, Leonteq and ICF Bank will reportedly be jointly working towards branching the former’s financial offerings, to grow outside the scope of traditional structured assets, via releasing supporting features for 18 crypto-centric assets –  Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH), as well as Cardano (ADA), Aave (AAVE) and XRP, amongst others.

Tracking certificates for the above assets individually will reportedly be visible on the Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG.

Along with this newly occurred development, Leonteq additionally promotes the largest crypto offering for both institutional and retail investors in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

“We are proud to offer our clients such a broad underlying universe and unique investment opportunities in various themes within the crypto space such as decentralized finance, storage or blockchain technologies in a securitised format.” Tino Wendisch, head of crypto offering at Leonteq, reportedly remarked regarding the situation.
