Press Release: 21Shares Bitcoin ETP Offered To Scandinavian Investors Via Nordnet AB

21 September 2020 – Stockholm | Zurich – 21Shares AG
, the world’s leading issuer of crypto Exchange Traded Products (ETP),
is bolstering its offering to Swedish and Scandinavian investors via
Nordnet Bank’s digital platform for savings and investments.

As of last week, the two approved Xetra listings of 21Shares are
available on Nordnet
‘s platform allowing investors to access more transparent and cost
effective products with exposure to bitcoin. With the 21Shares Bitcoin
and Short Bitcoin ETP, 21Shares is paving the way for further expansion
and is committed to providing the highest quality products to a
community that is already well established. For the first time,
Scandinavian investors are now in a position to take advantage of a
product that gives them a positive performance when the price of bitcoin
drops for a short period of time as well as a long bitcoin exposure with
a low management fees of 1.49% (ABTC) per annum using conventional
products they have been accustomed to for many years. This follows the
success of its eleven other institutional grade crypto exchange-traded
products and further cements its status as the specialist firm having
the most expansive regulated product suite of crypto assets listed on
stock exchanges in Europe.

Scandinavian investors were the first in Europe to enjoy crypto
structured products and with time, institutional acceptance filled the
market with more manufactured institutional grade products that offer
added security, transparency and mostly reduced costs. With over 70% of
AuM from institutional investors , 21Shares is delighted to have its
products offered via a trusted and recognised broker in Sweden.

“Sweden has always been a special place for me as it was the first EU
country to allow a bitcoin structure to be admitted on the Nasdaq Nordic
exchange back in 2015, it is now time to present the market with the
latest engineered products that are fully compliant, transparent and
cost effective using crypto as underlyings. We are delighted to be
working with Nordnet as their clients have always been keen users of
such trading products ” said Laurent Kssis, Managing Director at
21Shares in charge of the Swedish expansion and whose foray into
engineered crypto vehicles is not new in the Swedish market having
listed ETNs on Nasdaq Stockholm and NGM.

Jacob Lindberg, CEO of the regulated crypto index provider Vinter
in Stockholm said: “We welcome additional issuers such as 21Shares to
Sweden, the largest and most developed market in Europe for
exchange-traded crypto products. With both long and short price exposure
to Bitcoin via 21Shares’ products you can finally express a prudent
approach to bitcoin just like you would in conventional financial
markets. Innovative crypto index products are an inevitable next step to
further institutionalise the asset class.”
