The crypto virus continues to spread, and wealthy investors are rapidly contracting the bitcoin bug. That’s the conclusion from a blockbuster survey conducted by deVere Group, a wealth adviser with more than 80,000 clients and $12 billion under advisement.
The survey, which included responses from 700 deVere clients across the world with at least £1 million in investable assets, found that 68% of high-net-worth investors plan to invest in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies within the next three years.
“The research shows that wealthy individuals are increasingly seeking exposure to cryptocurrencies,” said Nigel Green, founder and CEO of deVere Group. “There is growing, universal acceptance that cryptocurrencies are the future of money – and the future is now. High net worth individuals are not prepared to miss out on this and are rebalancing their investment portfolios towards these digital assets.”
