FIS, Fireblocks, Liquidity, Digital Assets, Card-to-crypto, Portfolio Management, USARecently, financial technology leader FIS announced it has teamed with Fireblocks to accelerate crypto adoption within the capital markets industry by enabling firms of all types to access the largest crypto trading venues, liquidity providers, lending desks and decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.

A recent study found that 69% of institutional investors in the U.S. would like to adopt digital assets as a part of their investment portfolio. Leveraging the Fireblocks platform, FIS capital markets clients can move, store and issue digital assets, and gain access to self-custody digital asset wallet technology, an asset transfer network, and tools to access staking, DeFi and other more advanced forms of digital asset exposure.

“As digital currencies become more mainstream, capital markets firms will greatly benefit from a single destination that helps them manage many classes of digital assets,” said Nasser Khodri, Head of Capital Markets at FIS. “This exciting new agreement is a proof point of our commitment to invest in growing our digital asset capabilities for our global client base.”

“The strategic partnership with FIS will bring the Fireblocks technology to nearly every type of buy-side, sell-side and corporate institution in traditional assets,” said Michael Shaulov, Chief Executive Officer at Fireblocks. “Together, we will enable a quick way for existing and prospective FIS clients to onboard their digital asset operations and begin tapping into these fast-growing markets.”

FIS continues to expand its crypto and digital asset portfolio for clients across multiple markets, including card-to-crypto and other money movement services for 4 of the top 5 cryptocurrency exchanges. The company also recently announced new crypto regulation capabilities.

Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that FIS had enhanced its Digital One platform with the launch of Spending Insights, a new offering within the Digital One Financial Wellness Suite. FIS’ Digital One hosted platform is pre-integrated with its core banking solutions making it easier for FIS’ clients to tap into this powerful digital solution.
