Iconic Funds’ Physical Bitcoin ETP Listing on SIX
FRANKFURT GERMANY, May 28, 2021 — Iconic Funds’ Physical Bitcoin ETP (ISIN: DE000A3GK2N1; Ticker: XBTI) will be listed and begin trading on the Swiss Stock Exchange on May 28, 2021. The exchange traded product (“ETP”), physically backed by Bitcoin, becomes a cost-efficient way for investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin on SIX with a total expense ratio of 0.95%. The ETP is issued by Iconic Funds BTC ETN GmbH, a subsidiary of Iconic Funds GmbH (collectively branded as “Iconic Funds”).
The Bitcoin ETP aims to remove the technical complications of investing in and holding Bitcoin for investors in an industry-leading cost-efficient manner. Each fully Bitcoin-collateralized Note of the ETP represents a specified amount of Bitcoin, less applicable fees. The Physical Bitcoin ETP was listed on Deutsche Börse’s Xetra earlier this month, making SIX the first international listing for the ETP.
Michael Geister, the newly-appointed Head of Crypto ETPs says ”We are delighted to provide our Bitcoin ETP to swiss-based and international investors who are accessing SIX to gain access to a new and emerging asset class.”
“SIX is the world’s leading exchange for crypto ETPs, so it is a natural fit to list our Physical Bitcoin ETP in Switzerland” said Patrick Lowry, CEO of Iconic Funds and publicly traded Cryptology Asset Group. “Expanding international listings and trading currencies for our ETP is at the top of our priority list, and we are excited by this first step in achieving our goals.”
“Investors looking for collateralized investment products granting access to crypto currencies increasingly turn to the Swiss Stock Exchange. With its wide product offering, SIX is a world leader: 10 different single crypto currencies are accessible via ETPs and structured products on our platform. A warm welcome to Iconic Funds joining our issuer ranks and further expanding the product range”, says Christian Reuss, Head SIX Swiss Exchange, Markets, SIX.
