Blockchain.com and Altis Partners Launch Asset Management Platform, BCAM
We’re pleased to announce the latest of our institutional offerings: Blockchain.com Asset Management (BCAM), a new crypto asset management platform powered by Blockchain.com with investments managed by Altis Partners.
In partnership with award-winning macro investment manager, Altis Partners, BCAM delivers a suite of institutional investment products. This offering marries the crypto trading infrastructure, research and security software services of Blockchain.com with the investment management expertise of Altis Partners.
Starting today, BCAM brings to market regulated crypto investment products for institutional investors, family offices and high net worth individuals. The platform launches with a suite of index and systematic products such as a Bitcoin Tracker and a Bitcoin Smart Beta. The Bitcoin Tracker tracks Bitcoin’s price versus USD, providing cheap, efficient exposure to Bitcoin, while Bitcoin Smart Beta offers an algorithm-based risk-managed exposure to bitcoin that aims to reduce volatility and drawdowns. BCAM provides robust risk management and client services to crypto assets, integrating them into sophisticated investment strategies.
Blockchain.com’s Charlie McGarraugh will lead the platform through Altis, serving as its Chief Investment Officer, while maintaining his current role at Blockchain.com. BCAM will also be led by Altis’ Founding Principals Stephen Hedgecock and Alex Brunwin. Hedgecock will oversee operations and compliance, while Brunwin will handle research and technology.
BCAM combines the very best of old world financial markets with the new world of crypto. The advent of distributed ledger technologies and crypto assets has the potential to change the structure of global capital markets while presenting new opportunities for investors. We are pleased to offer our risk management and operational expertise in this exciting sector to an even broader range of clients.
Sven Niederheide joins Blockchain.com as Head of Legal and Compliance for Germany
As our global business scales, we maintain a commitment to upholding the highest standards of compliance in every market we serve. Regulators across the world are thoughtfully discussing ways to protect consumers while supporting innovation in the industry. Nowhere is crypto regulation more robust and advanced than in Germany, where our team continues to grow.
Sven Niederheide, the newest member of our German team, joins us as Head of Legal and Compliance and Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO), and is based in Hamburg. With nearly 20 years of management experience in banking, payments, and fintech within Germany, the UK, and Europe, Sven specializes in helping to scale businesses through strategic banking and payments licensing. He has extensive experience working with regulators in Germany, Europe and the United States, handling crypto regulation, corporate and regulatory compliance, open banking, anti-money laundering, and more.
A former Chief Compliance Officer for a number of German banks and financial services companies, Sven is no stranger to navigating complex regulatory landscapes. Most recently, Sven led compliance for neobank N26. He also built the compliance function from scratch at B2B fintech company Nufin, automotive financial services firm GMAC, as well as all of GE Capital’s businesses in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg. In his role as Chief Governance Officer for Hamburg Commercial Bank, Sven supported a turnaround from a state-owned entity to what has now become one of the most profitable private banks in Germany.
The largest economy in Europe, Germany is led by a pro-blockchain government and boasts high crypto adoption rates. Sven will be instrumental in supporting our efforts to work alongside regulators and acquire the appropriate licenses in Europe and beyond. As we work to build the future of finance, we look forward to providing more access to crypto directly from the heart of Europe.
