and digital finance
Let's face it - our lives are becoming more digital every day.
Like the Internet, Bitcoin and blockchain networks are landmark innovations with the potential to profoundly transform commerce, finance and the broader global economy.
At CoinShares, we are steadfast in pursuing our mission to build best-in-class, professional-grade tools and services for investors seeking exposure to the digital asset class.
Navigating new markets is in our DNA...
The CoinShares Group was created in September 2017, though our roots can be traced back much further. Over the last five years, our team has enjoyed a long track record of firsts – from launching the world’s first regulated bitcoin investment fund, to offering the world’s first bitcoin and ether-based securities on a regulated public exchange.
By creating CoinShares, we sought to consolidate our pioneering portfolio under a single brand so that investors could grow with a familiar partner. This is why TheStreet described us as the ‘BlackRock iShares equivalent’ of digital finance.
Rest assured - when you work with CoinShares, you are partnering with trusted veterans in this frontier market.
...and CoinShares has the track record to prove it.

Backed by decades of experience in finance and technology.
Our portfolio is supported by a team with deep experience in exchange-traded products, hedge funds, commodities, FX, market making, and both active and passive investment in frontier markets. The team comprises alumni from JP Morgan, Lehman Brothers and State Street; and represents a multi-decade record in [alternative] investment management.
While our backgrounds are diverse, we all share a sincere belief that blockchain networks will fundamentally change the world.
Behind the hype, speculation, and public imagination that has gripped this emerging asset class there are market fundamentals. Indicators which offer critical insights to the inner workings, pace of development, and overall health of these technologies.
At CoinShares Research, we strive to distill this information for our readers; to separate signal from noise; and to provide the sort of clear and intelligible insights that are required for investors to keep pace with one of the fastest growing industries of our time.
Our investment management arm has a twenty-year track record as an investment manager, long preceding digital assets as we know them.
Before CoinShares, our team originally started in commodities - primarily oil - under the Global Advisors moniker; and switched focus with the birth of GABI, the world's first regulated bitcoin fund.
