BlackRock’s director in Brazil shares insights

According to InfoMoney, BlackRock Brazil country director Karina Saade revealed the launch of an ETF to provide investors with regulated access to Bitcoin, highlighting the strategic expansion of investment in digital assets in Brazil.

Saade said: “We base our digital asset journey on the goal of providing investors with high-quality access tools.” “IBIT39 builds on the core capabilities we have developed to date in the digital asset market and is a natural progression of our long-standing efforts.”

Saade expressed her belief in the potential of technology and that today all investors – individuals – can build a portfolio based solely on ETFs.

Saade said that BlackRock ‘s latest products in the United States and Brazil should not be seen as supporting cryptocurrencies. On the contrary, she confirmed growing investor interest in this type of asset.

“Our goal is to provide customers with products that are safe and simple to understand. We have no suggestions or expectations about Bitcoin itself,” Saade added.

IBIT39 includes a management fee of 0.25%, which will be reduced to 0.12% in the first year after $5 billion in assets under management(AUM). IBIT39’s structure reflects Bitcoin’s price behavior.
