The pioneering digital asset firm Invictus Capital, recently announced plans to open an office in Switzerland. Due to the growing demand for institutional investment in regulated digital asset funds, Invictus plans to grow its international presence, and to meet the needs of digital asset savvy institutions and high net worth investors.
Founded in 2017, Invictus Capital is a pioneer in the digital asset industry. Few digital asset firms have an established track-record. Invictus has been working with high net worth retail investors and institutions alike, for more than four years, and in that period, has offered class-leading digital asset investment solutions.
“We are committed to a future of digital assets and accelerating the ease of integration to bridge traditional banking to the digital asset ecosystem. Zurich is known globally as a premier financial hub and was a natural choice for our team’s expansion as we look to broaden our institutional client base,” notes Haydn Hammond, Global Head of Sales and Institutional Investments.
Hammond continues, “When looking at the ideal jurisdiction to launch the base of our international operations, Switzerland was the clear frontrunner. Geographically, it serves as the perfect hub from which to service our institutional clients across the continent. The country’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce further boosted the attractiveness of a Zurich office to further our global ambitions.”
Daniel Schwartzkopff, CEO Invictus Capital, added: “Invictus Capital is very pleased to continue to offer a wide ranging digital portfolio and ongoing support to our institutional clients and advisors across Europe. We believe that having an established hub and presence on the ground is important and demonstrates our commitment to the future of blockchain and digital asset adoption.”
He continues “Since launching the world's first tokenized digital asset index fund, Invictus has been at the forefront of innovation, regulation is the next step in our journey to provide a clear, trusted framework for our clients. Today, we are delighted to be on track to become the world's first regulated tokenized mutual fund."
In the near future, and subsequent to careful discussion and engagement with the relevant roleplayers in Switzerland, the Invictus team based out of Zurich will serve as a hub from which to offer its institutional clients a full range of services, including access to some of the best performing regulated digital asset funds in the market. In the short term, Invictus will be led in Zurich byHaydn Hammond, a seasoned finance professional with over 20 years of experience His most recent stint in traditional finance, before pivoting to digital assets, was spent in London at Barclays as Director of Emerging Market sales.
