Sygnum report: Crypto asset allocation strategies


A comprehensive guide to understanding, sizing and implementing crypto asset allocations


Cryptocurrencies have been the best-performing asset class every year, bar two years, since the market’s advent over ten years ago, and in most years by a very long way. As the asset class grew and matured in terms of market structure and the underlying technology, institutional investors have started to embrace it.


Expectations of extraordinary returns over time from a megatrend based on the fastest growing technology in history, with a set of use cases still in the earliest stages, are leading many institutions to consider incorporating crypto assets in their portfolios.

  • What benefit do crypto assets bring to portfolios
