Like all ETC Group products, the ETC Group MSCI Digital Assets Select 20 is fully backed by the underlying digital assets and issuer default risk is minimised via an independent trustee. The digital assets backing the ETP are safely and professionally kept in cold storage by a regulated custodian. All transactions are additionally monitored independently by a dedicated administrator.
