The post Fidelity Investments’ Digital Asset Custody Services Arm Expands to Asia appeared first on Bitcoin News.
Back in August, filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had shown Fidelity filed with the SEC to invoke a bitcoin index fund. Fidelity’s FDAS unit also expanded to Europe as well and set up shop in the UK.
Fidelity Digital Asset Services has revealed the company is expanding into Asia and plans to help high-net-worth investors and family offices in the region with custodial crypto products. Fidelity is working with the Singaporean startup Stack Funds, a fully-insured custody operation servicing traditional financial institutions.
“This year has been tough as far as getting people into Bitcoin because it didn’t cover itself with glory in the market downturn,” Collett stressed. But “since the dark-dark days of March we’ve had inquiries pick up again,” the Stack Funds cofounder added.
Stack Funds cofounder, Michael Collett, detailed that the FDAS expansion into Asia will offer a number of benefits to family offices and high-net-worth investors. Collett revealed services will offer digital currency insurance and monthly audits as well.

Speaking with Bloomberg, Christopher Tyrer, head of Fidelity Digital Assets Europe spoke about the company’s latest Asian expansion. “There is a critical need for platforms which have a deep understanding of what local and regional investors are looking for,” Tyrer detailed. “[Something that] “has historically been lacking in the digital asset space,” he added.
During the Asian expansion announcement, Collett said that the firm didn’t expect the mid-March market crypto rout, otherwise known as ‘Black Thursday.’
