Abu Dhabi, July 14, 2021 – Sarwa, the fastest growing investment and personal finance platform in the Middle East, announced today the launch of Sarwa Crypto portfolios. The Portfolios are globally diversified across class assets while offering a 5% exposure to Grayscale Bitcoin Trust GBTC, the world’s first and largest publicly-quoted Bitcoin investment vehicle.
The investment platform said that this will make a complex and inaccessible ‘asset class’ easy to invest in, in a safe and secure manner.
“There is a significant amount of interest around cryptocurrency and specifically Bitcoin in the region. At the same time, there are a lot of barriers to safely buy and sell these assets – including not knowing where to start,” Mark Chahwan, CEO and co-founder of Sarwa, said. “Our clients were looking for ways to be exposed to Bitcoin. With Sarwa Crypto, we saw an opportunity to do what we do best: enable our community to invest in technology and themes they believe in and to do it in the best way. They can now have exposure to Bitcoin in a smart and diversified way. It’s a product that is simple, secure, and is built for everyone.”
Sarwa Crypto portfolios are based on the same data-driven strategy and give the same global diversification as all the Sarwa Invest portfolios. They have an added allocation of 5% to Grayscale Bitcoin Trust GBTC. Investors gain exposure to Bitcoin in the form of security while avoiding the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping Bitcoin directly.
‘Bitcoin has a lot going for it as a potential store of value, but it’s also relatively new, and very volatile. The reality is, it is still a speculative asset, yet each year it survives it becomes more valuable. Having a globally diversified portfolio with a small exposure to Bitcoin is, I believe, a safe and secure way of having exposure to Bitcoin,’ said Mark Chahwan. ‘We don’t think one should invest because of the hype and a get-rich mentality. Smart investing is about long-term potential and building wealth, and that’s what we help our clients do.’

- An easy, simple, and fast onboarding
