November 10, 2023 - Copper, a leading institutional digital asset infrastructure provider, has acquired Securrency Capital Limited, a full-service, regulated blockchain-enabled brokerage firm offering digital securities trading based in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).
Securrency Capital’s platform, powered by Securrency’s digital asset infrastructure and compliance aware solutions, provides investors with access to global securities, delivering 24/7 trading with near-real time settlement. In addition, the tokenisation of traditional securities enables increased investor access and simpler, more efficient value chain management through automation.
Operating out of ADGM and supervised by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA), Securrency Capital Limited will be renamed Copper Securities Limited and will remain headquartered in the ADGM.
Dmitry Tokarev, CEO and Founder of Copper, said: “Through this acquisition, Copper is able to grow its role as a global digital asset infrastructure provider and establish a stronger footprint in the United Arab Emirates. This is just the beginning of our expansion into the Middle East.”
John Hensel, Co-founder & COO of Securrency, Inc, said: “I am thrilled to announce Securrency Capital’s acquisition by Copper. We look forward to working with Dmitry and team as they serve the rapidly growing Abu Dhabi Global Market.”
Broadhaven Capital Partners acted as an adviser to Copper on the deal.
