Hargreaves Lansdown the UK’s biggest investment website allows anyone to invest in Bitcoin
The UK’s biggest financial investing website is now offering the non technical savvy the opportunity to invest in Bitcoin.
Customers who have a general trading or self-invested pension fund with Hargreaves Lansdown can now buy into a tracker that follows Bitcoin without the fuss.
ETNs are funds listed on the stock exchange, so they can be bought and sold like shares. They are denominated in Swedish krona and investors should be aware of the currency risks, as well as those attached to bitcoin itself.
“By adding self-service, online dealing, the team at Hargreaves Lansdown is providing UK investors with professional and quick access to the bitcoin space in the UK and greater Europe. This is very exciting for any investors who have been thinking about buying bitcoin but did not want the hassle of security and regulation involved in buying bitcoin directly from exchanges. Now investors can quickly add bitcoin exposure to their portfolio via their brokerage account.” says Ryan Radloff, Head of Investor Relations for XBT Provider, AB.
At the time of writing the price of Bitcoin currently stands at $2,443 / £1,895 / €2177 / 21247 SEK
