Market Extra: Nasdaq to provide crypto custody for institutional investors

Nasdaq Inc., owner of the second largest stock exchange, is looking to provide crypto custody service to institutional investors, in its first major push into the rather nascent industry, despite a price downturn for the asset.

The service is subject to regulatory approval, according to a statement from Nasdaq on Tuesday. Ira Auerbach, Nasdaq’s senior vice president and head of digital assets, will lead the company’s new digital asset business, according to the statement. 

“Demand among institutional investors for engaging in digital assets has increased in recent years, and Nasdaq is well-positioned to accelerate broader adoption and drive sustainable growth,” Tal Cohen, executive vice president and head of north American markets at Nasdaq, wrote in the statement.
