Investing in Cryptocurrencies as a Hedge for Family Office Investors

Investing in Cryptocurrencies as a Hedge for Family Office Investors

A recent Goldman Sachs survey of family offices survey shows that 15% of family offices have already invested in cryptocurrency assets, and another 45% of the surveyed family offices are interested in or planning to invest in cryptocurrencies. These findings indicate  that rich family offices are considering cryptocurrency assets as a hedge against rising inflation, prolonged low rates, and uncertain macroeconomic conditions.

This September 14th Symposium brought together a panel of industry experts to share thoughts and ideas about the opportunities, risks and rewards of investing in cryptocurrencies. This timely discussion was moderated by Diffuse COO Ayla Kremb, joined by panelists Nisa Amoils,  Managing Partner at A100X, and Ken Nguyen, Founder at Insight Capital.
