launches personalised OTC crypto trading service

Karthik Subramanian, the large European crypto trading platform, has announced the launch of its new Over the Counter crypto trading service to help high net worth (HNW) individuals to be able to buy and sell large amounts of crypto in a simple, reliable and straightforward manner.

The exchange would use this service to help HNW retail and institutional clients to settle trades themselves 24/7 in real-time or they can make use of the dedicated account manager for added support. The company also has a premium advisory service to help its clients with advice and support on what kind of cryptos can be bought, platform assistance, and other kinds of help, and this team would be multi-lingual to ensure that clients get support and advice in their language which would help them to make better trading and investing decisions. The exchange has been working to onboard many mainstream users into the platform and help them understand crypto in a better manner so that they would start considering cryptos on par with other asset classes like stocks and FX.

Samuel Rondot, Head of OTC Trading at said: “HNW individuals have diverse portfolios with investments across many different sectors and a large appetite for new products. Their time and attention are valuable and staying ahead of changes in the crypto market require constant attention and a lot of time. Operating across multiple time-zones, Prime will provide our clients with a personal and private consulting service to support them in their trading journey.”

The exchange also promises to provide enough liquidity for HNW clients across 200 instruments along with innovative products, lending, staking, and other services that the users would expect to find at an exchange. It would expect this new Prime service to help it to get a better reach and penetration into the European crypto market and it is not only important to onboard the existing crypto community but also broadly expand crypto coverage so that more users enter into the industry. For this to happen, the exchange, along with other crypto businesses, would need the support of regulators so that it can approach the new users with the knowledge and confidence that what they are doing is within the legal limits.
