• Shares of the digital asset firm rose on the news, ahead 21.17% on-day
  • CoinShares manages roughly $3.9 billion in assets, according to its Q3 report

CoinShares, the cryptocurrency asset manager, reported higher-than-expected third-quarter earnings on Thursday. 

The company’s total comprehensive income for the period ending on September 30 was reported at almost $114.5 million, up from $19.3 million on the year. The Q3 results were CoinShares’ strongest-ever performance over a nine-month period, according to the company’s filing. 

CoinShares (CS) has $3.9 billion assets under management (AUM), according to the report. In December of last year, the company posted $2.2 billion AUM. 

The stronger-than-anticipated performance comes as the crypto market recovers after a sharp downturn for ethereum and bitcoin during the summer months. 

“Over Q3 and despite some headwinds, we have largely maintained the momentum that was seen moving into 2021,” Jean-Marie Mognetti, Chief Executive Officer of CoinShares, said in a statement. 

Shares of the digital asset firm rose on the news, ahead 21.17%, as of press time.
