In-House Bitcoin Fund Launched by JPMorgan for Wealthy Customers

August 5, 2021



In-house bitcoin has been pitched by JPMorgan for its private bank customers for the initial time this week, ending its transformation from the never BTC mega-bank to a real player in the cryptocurrency industry. Although, the leading crypto, bitcoin is currently exchanging around $38,530, at the time of writing. 


The passively managed fund, offered in partnership with BTC powerhouse NYDIG, do not have any investments from the wealthy customers yet. However, that might change soon, advisers were primed only yesterday in the launch call with the mega financial institution.


The Bitcoin fund, will be introduced to customers as the most secure and least expensive bitcoin (BTC) investment vehicle accessible on the private markets. 


That is keeping with the partisan principal from the bank’s bitcoin skeptic chief executive officer, Jamie Dimon. In spite of his truly heartfelt scorn for spooky internet cash, the CEO, Dimon has over and over said that customers need the stuff, and thusly JPMorgan has an obligation to convey it securely. 


The private fund would likewise go about as a simple port over to a bitcoin exchange-traded fund once that long-sought product gets the high bar free from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 


JPMorgan doesn’t right now have a bitcoin ETF (Exchange-traded fund) bid before the SEC, however almost twelve different firms do. Others are holding up with excitement, Grayscale is generally expected to change over its high-charge Grayscale Bitcoin Trust product to an ETF once everything looks good.


Also, NYDIG has also requested for Bitcoin exchange-traded fund application, which the SEC has started reviewing. However, as per the business insider, all wealthy customers of the bank have recently got the power to access BC funds like GBTC through JPMorgan brokerage account. Although, the latest bitcoin fund is limited to the JPMorgan Private Bank’s clients only.
