Bequant Launches Crypto Prime Brokerage to Compete for Institutional Money
London-based Bequant becomes one of only a few companies in crypto to offer a full range of prime brokerage services for hedge funds.
Bequant is adding New York-based Solidus Labs’ surveillance tools to its digital asset services business.
Bequant added separately managed accounts, derivatives trading and instant fund transfers in a bid to compete with rival prime brokers.
Bequant is on its way to becoming a fully licensed prime broker for digital assets, with the option for more securities licenses in Malta.
In a newly crowded market, Bequant is still adding features to the suite of services it's been building for the past two years.
Crypto exchange Coinbase is finally acquiring Tagomi, a prime brokerage platform specializing in digital asset trading for institutional clients.
