perfORM Due Diligence Services Limited (“perfORM”), a leading operational due diligence (“ODD”) provider, has partnered with Copper in Switzerland, making us the first digital asset custodian to receive an ODD Report.
Upon completion of a full ODD review, perfORM has issued an in-depth ODD Report that is accessible, upon request, by investment managers and partners. The ODD Report considers operational pillars such as asset safety, infrastructure, cyber security, regulation and compliance, financial crime prevention, and audits.
The ODD Report hones in on Copper’s product suite, including off-exchange settlement through the ClearLoop solution and its innovative trust documentation governed under English law. The settlement network is designed to allow exchange trading whilst keeping digital assets within Copper’s custody. This requires significant legal negotiation with, and due diligence of, the exchanges either integrated or onboarding to ClearLoop including: Bit.com, Bitfinex, Bitget, Bitmart, Bitstamp, Bybit, Deribit, Gate.io, OKX and Powertrade. PerfORM has helped streamline an extremely complex process as the network of exchanges under Clearloop continues to expand at rapid pace and demand.
At Copper we build the products and services that allow institutional investors secure and efficient ways to interact with digital assets. Completing the perfORM ODD Report offers yet another level of security and transparency for our institutional clients.
Quentin Thom, Co-Founder and Co-Head of perfORM stated, “we are delighted to be working with Copper as an ODD Report Solution client.
