Arcane Crypto AB announces an operational reorganization, unifying its growing private wealth businesses under a new business unit called K33.
22 November 2022
In parallel Arcane has initiated a strategic review of its investment and venture business to exploit current market opportunities.
Over the last year, Arcane Crypto AB (“Arcane”) has experienced substantial interest in its private wealth business, currently offered by the various subsidiaries, today known as Arcane Research, Kaupang Krypto and Arcane Assets.
To capitalize on this interest and opportunity, these units will be combined into one single business unit called K33. This provides the operational optimizations and the single-minded focus needed to capture the opportunities in K33.
For Arcane as a group, unifying the private wealth initiative under K33, creates optionality to act on strategic interest. This may include, but is not limited to, taking on strategic investors or separated listings of different parts of the portfolio.
In practice, Arcane’s wholly owned subsidiary Arcane Crypto AS will be renamed K33 Holding AS, trading as K33. The relevant sub-entities will be combined and renamed accordingly.
Arcane is also in the process of optimizing the operation of its investment portfolio. Initially, the portfolio will consist of K33, Arcane Green Data, Pure Markets and LN Markets. Arcane will explore both new investments and M&A, seeking to take advantage of a strong deal flow and interesting opportunities in the market as well as potential partnerships.
K33 – Safe. Secure. Digital Assets.
K33, available on k33.com, will be a research-led digital assets brokerage with investment services. Helping clients across EMEA make informed decisions backed by industry leading digital assets research as they invest for the long term is already proving a unique and winning proposition to Arcane’s customers. K33 provides this through a unified platform where investors and wealth managers get access to Research, digital assets brokerages offering funds & structured products.
The unified platform will be launched during Q4 2022. The platform can be accessed both directly by customers and through distribution partners and asset management firms that sign up to offer the K33 platform as part of their investment offering.
“I am very happy about this operational restructuring of Arcane. By doing this, K33 will get the focus and attention it needs to become, quite simply, the preferred private wealth platform for digital assets in Europe” says Torbjørn Bull Jenssen, CEO of Arcane and of K33.
According to the CTO & Head of Product, Oisin Zimmermann; “K33 represents our vision of the future of the digital assets investment industry, with client funds and investments guided and protected by experts. This will all be offered through an intuitive digital interface, augmented by real-time one-on-one advice and support. We’re targeting young, affluent and high net worth individuals across EMEA, directly and through their existing wealth managers, who value our level of expertise, and our ability to serve the most demanding clients and managers.”
“We are happy to finally be able to announce this strategic reorganization for Arcane. Despite turmoil in digital asset markets recently, we continue to see massive interest in the sector from many market participants. Both the investment side, and the private wealth offering, K33, has an amazing potential. Under the new structure both parts of the business will get even better foundations to prosper and take strong positions in their respective markets” says Chairman Michael Jackson.
