Goldman Sachs is hooking up clients with Galaxy Digital’s ETH fund

Financial services giant Goldman Sachs has been offering clients exposure to ETH through Galaxy Digital’s Ethereum Fund according to a new Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Goldman Sachs clients keen on spot exposure to Ethereum (ETH) have been offered space in Galaxy’s ETH Fund. This strategy became apparent in a Mar. 8 filing from Galaxy which listed Goldman as a recipient of introduction fees for referring clients to the fund.

Galaxy Digital is billionaire Mike Novogratz’s crypto-focused financial service provider. It controlled $2.8 billion assets under management (AUM) as of the end of Q4 2021.

It is unclear exactly how much Goldman clients have bought, but the minimum investment per investor is $250,000. The filing also states that Galaxy’s ETH Fund has had sales of just over $50.5 million since inception.

Goldman Sachs has begun referring clients to Galaxy Digital’s ETH Fund.

Independent wealth management firm CAIS Capital was also listed on the filing as a recipient of placement fees for referring its clients to Galaxy’s ETH Fund. The amount of Goldman’s introduction fee and CAIS’s placement fee has not been disclosed.

This is not the first time Goldman has partnered with Galaxy Digital. Last June, Goldman began offering Bitcoin (BTC) futures trading via CME Group Bitcoin futures with Galaxy Digital providing liquidity.

Goldman’s employees are also increasingly keen on the crypto space. On Feb. 25 Goldman executive Roger Bartlett announced that he was leaving the traditional financial firm to settle at Coinbase crypto exchange.

He will lead global financial operations to, as he said in a LinkedIn post, “embrace opportunities offered by digital assets and its ecosystem.”

Senior Chairman at Goldman Sachs Lloyd Blankfein also shares a curiosity about the crypto space. He tweeted on Mar. 7 his wonder at how cryptocurrency was not “having a moment” now in light of extremely high inflation rates and individual bank accounts being frozen around the world.

Keeping an open mind about crypto, but given the inflating US dollar and the stark reminder that governments can and will under certain circumstances freeze accounts and block payments, wouldn’t you think crypto would be having a moment now? Not seeing it in the price, so far….
