“I’m delighted to take an executive role with ETC Group at this exciting time, where in just over a year they’ve already achieved global success attracting nearly $2 billion investment into their world leading crypto ETPs,” commented Bevan. “My role will be to help ETC Group scale up as we expand further into new territories, on new exchanges, and with new digital assets.”

Earlier this month ETC Group announced that its total assets under management in its portfolio of Crypto ETPs had passed US$1.5 billion for the first time. As well as listing its ETPs on multiple European exchanges, including XETRA, Six and Euronext, ETC Group was the first company to list a Bitcoin ETP in the UK, on the Aquis exchange in June this year.

“At ETC Group, we have achieved astonishing success thanks to the hard work of the incredible team we have put together. As we grow, it becomes important to add selectively to the team. Tim’s expertise in governance and trading will play a key part in our rapid expansion over the coming months especially given the ambitious nature of our plans”, commented Bradley Duke, co-Founder and co-CEO of ETC Group. “We’ve already benefited from his experience as a co-founder and in his role as a non-exec to the company, and am delighted to welcome him to this permanent role to help us drive further main-stream adoption of crypto ETPs”
