Gibraltar Crypto Funds – a novel way to invest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies

As the world’s first jurisdiction to regulate DLT operators, Gibraltar is seen as an ideal jurisdiction to house cryptocurrency funds.

In addition, Finsbury Fund Services provides comprehensive fund administration services across assets classes, including with cryptocurrencies and blockchain related investment strategies.
