Grayscale Investments and Icapital Network have partnered together to provide over 6,700 advisers from Icapital an opportunity to access Grayscale’s crypto investment products.
Seamless Access to Crypto Strategies
Icapital’s CEO Lawrence Calcano announced that cryptocurrencies are a hot topic, as many clients desire uncorrelated return potential in their crypto portfolios. Grayscale had commissioned a survey through InvestmentNews Research. They found that around 61% of advisers have been approached by clients- 79% out of those clients intent to increase recommendations of digital asset investment over the span of a year.
With more than $80 billion in client assets, Icapital already connected its clients to over 780 funds worldwide. Now over 6,700 advisers from Icapital’s network will have access to cryptocurrencies through Grayscale. These high-net-worth clients will largely benefit from Grayscale’s market-cap-weighted GDLC (Digital Large Cap Fund) investment strategy.
Grayscale Excited to Work with Icapital
Grayscale Investments is the world’s biggest cryptocurrency manager. As of September 9, the company manages over $43 billion worth of assets.
