We’re delighted to partner with comdirect, one of the largest retail brokers in Germany, to provide another way for retail investors to access crypto-based securities in a secure and regulated environment.

Andre Voinea, Head of DACH at HANetf commented:

2021 was another strong year for cryptos and retail investors now have a wide range of ETCs available on regulated stock exchanges offering exposure. For long-term investors, Saving Plans can be an ideal tool to integrate cryptos into their portfolios. We are proud to have partnered with a reputable partner such as comdirect which will allow us to reach a broad range of investors in Germany.

ETC Group has pioneered the digital asset management industry by providing institutional quality, 100% collateralised digital asset backed securities. The ETCs provide investors with significant benefits over direct investment in digital assets, including:

Simple trading, with no digital wallet required Investors can buy and sell like any stock or ETF through their regular broker or bank. No new account needed, products have a ticker and ISIN and can be added to an investor’s conventional stock portfolio.

Institutional-grade asset custody The underlying digital asset is kept in cold-storage at a regulated custodian, and all assets are secured by an independent trustee, thus eliminating issuer default risk, a common feature for physical ETC structures.

100 % backed & physical redemption Investors are legally entitled to the underlying digital asset, and can redeem the ETC for the сryptocurrency, alternatively to selling on exchange, hence providing pure exposure to the underlying.

Regulated and listed on major exchanges Issued in Germany under German regulatory oversight, the ETCs’ primary listings are on XETRA, the largest ETF exchange in Europe.
