Sixty-one percent of investors expect their digital-asset holdings to increase in the next 12 to 24 months, according to a Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
Goldman Sachs surveyed 280 of the firm’s clients in early March, which included pension funds and sovereign wealth funds, corporations, , insurance , macro funds, asset managers, hedge funds and banks, among others.
Among the survey’s total respondents, 40% reported having exposure to cryptocurrencies.
The survey also found that 34% of investors believe regulation/internal investment/mandate permissions are the greatest hurdles to start allocating to digital assets, while 24% identified a lack of well-regulated, investible assets as the biggest hurdle. Additionally, 35% of respondents said they believe spot pricing and volumes data would be the most helpful to better evaluate potential investments in cryptocurrencies.
