One of the biggest investment banks in Europe, Societe Generale, said in a new press release on Wednesday that its Security Services division would be expanding its bitcoin asset management services.
Now, clients who manage funds for digital assets can choose to have Societe Generale act as the fund’s custodian, valuer, and liability manager. The instruments are made to make it easier for institutional investors to include cryptocurrencies in their portfolios.
Arquant Capital SAS, a French asset management company with a license, is the company’s most recent client. It has two digital asset solutions with euro-denominated values that include Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), and other derivatives.

“This solution provides Arquant Capital with an innovative structuring that allows us to scale our offering and focus on creating value for our clients.”
