Interdealer broker TP ICAP is launching a crypto-trading platform alongside Fidelity Investments and Standard Chartered, Reuters reported.

  • The platform, which is awaiting approval by the U.K.'s financial regulator, will launch later this year, offering bitcoin (BTC, +3.41%) trading initially with ether (ETH, +7.54%) to be added later.

  • The venture's aim is to make trading of crypto more like that of stocks, bonds, and foreign exchange for institutional investors, Reuters reported Tuesday.

  • This will be achieved by offering a post-trade infrastructure and separate execution and settlement, something that is the "opposite to the models that exist currently," according to Duncan Trenholme, co-head of digital assets at TP ICAP.

  • Standard Chartered earlier this month announced a venture to a create a digital-asset brokerage and exchange platform alongside digital-asset platform OSL, demonstrating increasing interest in the crypto space by the bank.
