HashKey Capital Becomes First Firm to Offer Both Crypto Asset Management and Advisory Services to Retail Clients

Hong Kong, May 13, 2024 - HashKey Capital Limited, a leading virtual asset management firm, is proud to announce that it has secured a Type 4 licence from the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). The firm operates under licence number BOP237, making it the first licensed corporation capable of offering both securities and virtual asset management and advisory services to retail investors following the satisfaction of certain conditions.

With the Type 4 licence, HashKey Capital is authorised to provide securities and virtual asset advisory services, subject to conditions including due dilligence and investors’ knowledge assessments. This achievement builds upon the firm's successful Type 9 licence upgrade earlier this year, which empowered it to manage virtual asset investment products for retail investors. Now, with both the Type 4 and upgraded Type 9 licences, HashKey Capital can offer a more complete suite of financial services, including securities and virtual asset investment research and advisory services tailored to both retail and professional investors.

Deng Chao, the CEO of HashKey Capital, said: "Securing the Type 4 licence and Type 9 licence upgrade from the SFC are significant steps for us as a team. This achievement reflects our dedication to serving the growing needs of retail and professional investors who seek guidance in navigating the evolving virtual asset landscape. We remain committed to delivering thoughtful insights to support our clients in making investment decisions.”

This strategic step reflects HashKey Capital's commitment to expanding its investment-related services following the launch of the Bosera HashKey Bitcoin and Ether spot ETFs, with Bosera Asset Management (International) Co., Limited as the investment manager and HashKey Capital Limited as the sub-investment manager of the ETFs.
