Crypto Resource Library launched By Grayscale Investments

Announcements, Investing | June 13, 2018 By:

Grayscale Investments has launched an online resource library to help digital asset investors make more informed crypto investing decisions.

Established in 2013 by Digital Currency Group, Grayscale Investments is a digital currency investing firm. It provides secure access to the digital currency asset class through its publicly-quoted digital currency investment vehicles, including Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) and Ethereum Classic Investment Trust (ETCG). As of May 31, 2018, the firm had $1.5 billion in assets under management.

Called Insights, the new website is targeted both at institutional and individual investors, and will showcase Grayscale’s content and analysis. The new website will also feature Grayscale’s investment theses regarding bitcoin, Ethereum Classic, and Zcash.

“There is tremendous appetite in the investor community for better information and clarity around digital currency investing,” said Michael Sonnenshein, Managing Director of Grayscale. “We are trying to demystify this market by offering clear-eyed analysis that demonstrates how digital currencies, when sized appropriately, may fit into a traditional investment portfolio.”

In conjunction with the launch of Insights, the company published a paper, titled “A New Frontier: How Digital Assets are Reshaping Asset Allocation,” that demonstrates how cryptocurrencies could enhance strategic asset allocation and help investors build diversified portfolios with higher risk-adjusted returns.

“As a new, uncorrelated asset class with unique properties, digital currencies may present attractive reward-to-risk profiles for certain investors’ portfolios,” the company said.

In February of this year, Grayscale introduced its first diversified investment vehicle, called Digital Large Cap Fund. The fund provides exposure to the top cryoptocurrencies by market capitalization. In March, the firm launched seven single-asset investment vehicles that provide exposure to bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), and Zcash (ZEC).
