Associate Director, Quantitative Research
Presentation: The rise of cryptocurrencies as a new asset class
Bitcoin has proven its merits over time, leading the way for the further development of blockchain technology and the creation of other crypto assets. With growing adoption, crypto has demonstrated it is not a passing trend and has real potential as its own asset class. Whilst demand is evident, many investors face difficulties to successfully access the product and bridge the gap between the underlying decentralised online blockchain technology and traditional finance.
