M&G invests $20m in UK’s first regulated Bitcoin derivatives exchange

M&G invests $20m in UK’s first regulated Bitcoin derivatives exchange

London-based global investment manager M&G Investments has injected $20 million into Global Futures & Options Holdings, positioning it as the first FCA-regulated and centrally-cleared trading venue for digital currency asset derivatives in the U.K.

According to the Dec. 11 announcement, the strategic partnership, in collaboration with London Clearing House, aims to meet the increasing demand from institutional investors.

Growing institutional interest 

In a recent series B funding round, M&G’s Crossover strategy allocated capital from the $162 billion Prudential With-Profits Fund to Global Futures & Options Holdings (GFO-X). The investment underscores M&G’s commitment to advancing the digital asset landscape and marks a significant development in meeting institutional investors’ evolving needs for diversified and regulated investment options.

“Evolving regulation will bring digital assets into mainstream finance,” Arnab Sen, GFO-X chief executive, said in a release. “This transition demands traditional market structures to solve the multiple risks currently associated with the digital asset market.”

The news comes at a time when reports highlight that institutional interest in tokenized products continues to rise, with 91% expressing interest and 41% already holding cryptocurrencies. 

Governance incoming

The move comes against the backdrop of the U.K.’s implementation of regulations for digital currencies, reflecting a global trend toward standardized governance. 

Notably, this development, alongside continued funding for regulated exchanges, is in sharp contrast to the U.S., which has not yet introduced a comprehensive framework for stablecoins and the broader cryptocurrency market.
