Digital asset manager Valkyrie Investments — the parent company of Valkyrie Funds and Valkyrie Digital Assets — has announced that “it has now topped $1 billion in assets under management (AUM).”

And Valkyrie CIO Steven McClurg stated:

The response to our ETF offerings has been overwhelming and welcome. We are of course working on bringing more products to market, based entirely on feedback and demand from RIAs, family offices and others, and are excited for the year ahead.
