Anchorage Digital and Onramp Invest Partner to Offer Crypto for Financial Advisors with Industry-First Block Trading Feature

First-Ever Crypto Block Trading Feature Marks Critical Step Forward in Fair Pricing and Efficient Execution for RIAs

Today, Anchorage Digital and Onramp Invest, a Securitize company, are proud to announce their industry-first offering of digital asset block trading for financial advisors. Combining Anchorage Digital’s industry-first solution for crypto block trading with Onramp’s advisor-first alternatives access tools marks a critical step forward in fair pricing and efficient execution for RIAs. The partnership provides safe, secure, and seamless access to digital assets through Anchorage Digital Bank—the only federally regulated qualified custodian for crypto with trading through Anchorage Hold.

“For RIAs, safekeeping client crypto with a qualified custodian is nothing less than essential for continued compliance—especially after a recent SEC proposal. As the only OCC-chartered digital asset bank, Anchorage Digital Bank provides the security and regulatory profile RIAs need to access the digital asset economy in a safe and compliant manner. We are proud to work with industry leaders like Onramp to unlock a future where crypto can be part of every portfolio.”

—Nathan McCauley, CEO of Anchorage Digital Bank

“This feature was long sought-after by us as an organization because we know what a difference it can make for our advisors. Block trading lets RIAs execute multiple trades across their entire book of clients as a single institutional order. This service maximizes efficiency, minimizes cost, and offers equitable execution for all clients. This is a big deal, which is the reason, besides strong security and regulatory standards, that we selected Anchorage Digital Bank. We’re proud to finally be able to offer this feature and help our advisors in a meaningful way, and Anchorage Digital is the perfect partner to bring this cutting-edge feature to our clients.”

—Eric Ervin, Founder and CEO of Onramp Invest, a Securitize company

By allowing for the execution of large crypto trades in a single transaction, our industry-first solution to block trading can unlock significant efficiency and cost savings for financial advisors and their end clients. In addition, this purpose-built solution conducted through Anchorage Digital affiliate, Anchorage Hold, helps to mitigate the market impact of large crypto trades. The new feature is available to financial advisors using Onramp, which serves a community of RIAs representing over $40 billion in cumulative AUM. 

The new block trading feature is part of Anchorage Digital’s recently launched comprehensive custody and trading offering for RIAs. The offering serves the full spectrum of the advisor ecosystem—including turnkey asset management programs (TAMPs), third-party technology platforms, and direct integrations with RIAs.
