Purpose Of Blackrock And Coinbase Affiliate Institutional Clients

Asset Management Company BlackRock has partnered with Coinbase to provide direct services to Institutional investors looking to invest in cryptocurrencies. With the institutional affiliate clients of Aladdin, BlackRock’s investment management platform will be able to benefit from crypto trading, custody, and reporting services.

This will provide integrated trading solutions to Aladdin institutional crypto investors through Coinbase Prime. The companies said they would continue improving the platform integration and gradually introduce the updated functions.

Joseph Chalom, global head of strategic ecosystem subsidiaries at BlackRock, said:

“The Aladdin and Coinbase Prime contact will allow clients to directly manage their Bitcoin exposures in their existing portfolio management and trading workflows for a complete portfolio view amid asset classes.”
