A new study reveals over half (53%) of professional investors believe that over the next two years, institutional investors will look to dramatically increase the level of diversification in their portfolios, and a further 40% think there will be a slightly greater focus on this.
Nickel Digital Asset Management (Nickel), Europe’s leading regulated and award-winning investment manager dedicated to the digital assets market, commissioned research with institutional investors and wealth managers from the US, UK, France, Germany, and the UAE who collectively have $275.5 billion in assets under management.
As part of their plans to diversify, the majority of respondents expect institutional investors to increase their exposure to alternative asset classes over the next two years.
Some 42% of professional investors surveyed said they expect institutional investors to ‘dramatically’ increase their exposure to cryptocurrencies between now and 2023.
This can partly be explained by the fact that many institutional investors are still testing the cryptoassets/digital market and either have very small holdings here, or none at all.
