After dropping its plan to launch a Bitcoin futures ETF in the US while pursuing a physically-backed ETF, Invesco launched a physically-backed bitcoin exchange-traded product (ETP) in Europe.

The Invesco Physical Bitcoin ETP (BTIC), which tracks the CoinShares Bitcoin Hourly Reference Rate index, is listed on the Deutsche Boerse. The ETP has a fixed annual fee of 0.99%.

Invesco has chosen the UK-based digital asset manager Zodia Custody for the custody of Bitcoin. The Custodian is registered with the FCA as a crypto asset business under the UK Money Laundering Prevention Regulations. Zodia was incubated by SC Ventures, the innovation arm of Standard Chartered, with Northern Trust as its co-investor, which will also act as the administrator for BTIC.

“We have been working on the product since the middle of 2018,” Gary Buxton, head of EMEA ETFs and indexed strategies at Invesco, told ETF Stream.

“In the last two to three years, we have been trying to structure a product that looked, from an institutional point of view, as close as possible to a traditional ETF like our gold structure, and that has been the driver of BTIC’s timeline.”

Asset manager WisdomTree also launched a trio of crypto basket ETPs in Europe, which are listed on the Swiss stock exchange SIX and Frankfurt-based Börse Xetra.

These ETPs track proprietary indices developed by WisdomTree. One of the indexes is the WisdomTree Crypto Market (BLOC) — which provides exposure to the most established crypto assets such as BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC, but caps Bitcoin and Ether’s combined allocation to 75% to void overexposure to the top two cryptos.

WisdomTree Crypto Mega Cap Equal Weight (MEGA) meanwhile focuses only on Bitcoin and Ether.

WisdomTree Crypto Altcoins (WALT) is another index that focuses on altcoins like Solana, Cardano, Polkadot, BCH, and Litecoin.
