Appleby advised Tether on its offshore structuring and regulatory compliance for the issuance of Tether Gold. The Appleby team was led by BVI partner Andrew Jowett with assistance from Peter Colegate, counsel in Appleby’s Cayman office, and Rebecca Jack, senior associate in Appleby’s BVI office. Appleby advised Tether alongside US counsel, Steptoe & Johnson LLP.

Commenting on this transaction, Andrew Jowett said: “In recent months we have seen a growing demand from investors for digital exposure to real world assets. The launch of Tether Gold meets that demand and builds on Tether’s reputation for developing innovative first-to-market products.”
