Through its one-stop solution, the company enables clients to allocate to the asset class seamlessly.

Elliot Andrews, CEO of Aspen Digital, said, “The IPA is an important milestone for Aspen Digital as we look to expand our global footprint and offering within the digital asset sector. With a deep understanding of the asset class, ADGM has built a very comprehensive and clear regulatory framework in which to operate. We are grateful for their support and look forward to working closely with them in driving the next wave of digital asset adoption.”
