Working as a top-tier exchange dedicated to the global crypto industry, Coinbase has entered into a strategic partnership with One River Digital Asset Management to fuel its expansion. Coming from the United States, the popular cryptocurrency exchange has announced to offer a new Separately Managed Account portal for wealth management companies. The highly-anticipated platform is unveiled under the name ‘ONE Digital SMA’ to serve the Coinbase Prime holders.
As per the announcement report, the latest offering by the two firms will allow Coinbase Prime account holders to enjoy access to a plethora of unprecedented services. The investors will be able to retain the ownership of their virtual tokens along with seamless access to institutional index and exclusive strategies through the new product.
