MG Stover, the largest digital asset fund administrator, finalized an agreement with Coin Metrics this month, giving clients the option of a trusted secondary pricing source.
MG Stover’s Head of Blockchain and Digital Assets, Seth Altman, says that “As more institutional investors evaluate the space, we go above and beyond to support institutional measures. One part of that is utilizing and collaborating with other service providers that share that same mission.”
Tim Rice, CEO of Coin Metrics, agrees and adds “Given price variability across crypto exchanges, having a reliable whole-market fixed price is important for the proper valuation of institutional portfolios. MG Stover’s move brings greater rigor to the space.”
Coin Metrics is a comprehensive financial data provider for digital asset institutions. Their CM Reference Rates platform streams USD price benchmarks and provides transparent, reliable pricing for more than 200 digital assets. Rates are produced either hourly with human review or automated in real-time every second.
