On October 31, the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) announced plans to allow ETF providers to list futures contracts for retail investors to gain exposure to crypto assets.

As a result, Samsung Asset Management has submitted an application to offer a Bitcoin Futures ETF for trading.

The Samsung Bitcoin Active ETF (under the ticker FA SAMSUNG BTC) will start trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange market on January 13.

The Samsung ETF invests in Bitcoin futures contracts listed on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). Futures contracts include CME Bitcoin Futures and CME Micro Bitcoin Futures.

As a result, retail investors can allocate small amounts to Bitcoin ETFs given the small contract units and margins.

Park Sung-jin, CEO of Samsung Asset Management, said:

Samsung’s Bitcoin ETF will be a new option for investors interested in Bitcoin as a competitive product. ”

Meanwhile, Samsung Asset Management had its Global Blockchain Industry ETF and Asia Pacific Metaverse ETF listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange market.
