Today, Anchorage Digital is proud to launch a comprehensive custody and trading separately managed account (SMA) offering for registered investment advisors (RIAs) to participate in digital assets in a safe, secure, and compliant manner. The new offering provides RIAs with custody and settlement services from Anchorage Digital Bank—the only federally chartered digital asset bank, and an unambiguous qualified custodian. We are proud to launch with a number of leading partners in the advisor space, including Eaglebrook Advisors and Onramp Invest, a Securitize company.

“After the recent SEC custody rule proposal, demand from RIAs for a qualified crypto custodian is higher than ever before. Leveraging our status as the only OCC-chartered digital asset bank, our new offering enables RIAs to access the digital asset class through safe, secure, and regulated infrastructure. By covering the full range of the trading cycle—from custody, execution, settlement, and even post-execution tax features—Anchorage Digital is proud to partner with leading RIAs to unlock the next generation of crypto adoption.”

— Diogo Mónica, President and Co-Founder of Anchorage Digital

Working with Anchorage Digital Bank provides RIAs with a clear path forward for complying with proposed changes to the SEC custody rule. In addition, Anchorage Digital’s agency trading desk via Anchorage Digital Bank affiliate, Anchorage Hold provides RIAs access to many sources of liquidity, allowing advisors to achieve tight pricing and meet fiduciary responsibilities. 

“As an award-winning crypto SMA platform serving some of the largest RIAs, Eaglebrook needed a custody and trading partner with a leading regulatory status and security profile. That is exactly what we have found in Anchorage Digital. Together, Eaglebrook and Anchorage Digital are breaking new ground for wealth managers and RIAs to access tax-optimized bitcoin and ether portfolios in a safe, secure, and compliant manner.”

— Christopher King, CEO and Founder of Eaglebrook Advisors

Our purpose-built offering provides streamlined access for the entire RIA landscape—from turnkey asset management platforms (TAMPs) and third-party technology platforms, to direct integrations with RIAs. We are also proud to partner with Onramp Invest, a leading digital asset wealth management platform that serves a community of RIAs representing over $40 billion in cumulative AUM. 

“The evolving alternatives market has recognized inevitable potential for investors, and it’s our goal to break down barriers for financial professionals to access these powerful digital assets for their clients. Partnering with Anchorage Digital is a crucial step towards achieving that goal.”

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

We have also partnered with TaxBit, the leading tax and accounting compliance solution for the digital economy, to provide the tax and accounting features RIAs need to participate in crypto. 

“TaxBit and Anchorage Digital have always shared a similar commitment to building an industry-leading regulatory stack to drive crypto adoption and innovation. Joining forces is critical to give RIAs the compliance features they need to participate in the digital asset economy. We are proud to welcome clients of Anchorage Digital into the TaxBit ecosystem.” 

—Lindsey Argalas, CEO of TaxBit
