First in the market
DAIM is a successful digital asset manager that uses its unique investing experience to produce benchmark exceeding returns. In 2017, DAIM’s CEO, Bryan Courchesne, realized the digital asset space was primarily self-directed and investors’ only way to enter was through unregulated platforms. After months of lobbying regulators, DAIM became the first of its kind Licensed Registered Investment Adviser for Bitcoin and Digital Assets.
At DAIM we have a variety of clients but have found a commonality among most of them. For example, after looking into many self-directed platforms, apps, and traditional investment brokers they found that pure Bitcoin investing was largely not possible. These institutions were offering to take their money for GBTC, but the client would not actually get Bitcoin, and this made them feel uncomfortable not having the actual asset. They also wanted to be able to speak to someone and ask questions, especially when it related to making a multi-million dollar investment into digital assets.
When they called DAIM they found we are able to provide unparalleled human service and give advice based on each client’s goals. DAIM being fully licensed and experienced in managing complex digital asset investments gives the client the confidence to invest the right amount of capital into Bitcoin.
