Crypto Index in Swiss Franc
MV Index Solutions (MVIS) and Swiss fintech company Amun AG revealed Thursday the launch of their most recent crypto ETP, in association with Bitcoin Suisse. The Amun Bitcoin Suisse ETP (ticker: ABBA) has actually begun trading on 6 Swiss Exchange, the main stock market in Switzerland for standard financial investments such as stocks, bonds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
The brand-new crypto ETP is created to track the costs of both BTC and ETH. MVIS Managing Director Thomas Kettner commented:
It’s our very first index in CHF and particularly created to serve the Swiss market which has actually been requiring such an index.
“The Amun Bitcoin Suisse BTC/ETH ETP was created for the Swiss by the Swiss,” Amun CEO Hany Rashwan said. “It represents a unique method for financiers to include the 2 significant cryptocurrencies worldwide to their portfolio by means of a managed item noted on 6 exchange and backed by a Swiss-based custodian.”
As of Oct. 4, the ETP’s underlying index makes up 88.68% BTC and 11.33% ETH. “Index weightings are examined on a month-to-month basis, based on the existing market capitalization of each coin. The index is market capitalization-weighted, no cap or flooring is being used,” the Zug-based business clarified. As news.Bitscoins.net formerly discussed, ETPs noted on 6 Swiss Exchange are not ETFs.
MVIS is a completely owned subsidiary of Van Eck Associates Corporation. Van Eck just recently withdrew its application with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to trade a bitcoin ETF on the Cboe BZX Exchange. Instead, the business is now using its bitcoin item to institutional financiers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933, which is exempt from the SEC’s registration requirements.

Other than the freshly noted ETP, there are 6 other crypto ETPs trading in USD on 6 Swiss Exchange. Four of them look for to track specific costs of single cryptocurrencies: BCH, BTC, ETH, and XRP.
