The interim CEO of Genesis, Derar Islim, yesterday called on customers to keep calm about the unpleasant situation. According to Islim, everything indicates that a solution will come sooner or later, but that this solution will simply need more time, he said. to The Block:

“While we are committed to acting as quickly as possible, this is a very complex process that will require some additional time. We believe we can find a solution.”

Genesis is currently working hard to keep itself running. They do this by staying in constant dialogue with DCG and various advisers. All options are being considered to at least safeguard customers’ assets, said CEO Islim:

“We continue to work with our advisors, in conjunction with DCG and advisors appointed by different client groups, to evaluate options to preserve client assets and move the business forward.”
