Conducted by Coalition Greenwich on behalf of Bullish, the study explored how investment firms are managing digital assets
A new study examining institutional adoption and management of digital assets by Bullish, a technology company that operates Bullish exchange, found nearly 95% of institutions believe digital assets will become a permanent allocation, with about 70% saying it will occur in the next four years.
The study highlighted that the number and type of institutions trading digital assets such as cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, DeFi tokens, and crypto derivatives, is on the rise, and reflects a mix of investment strategies, including active trading and multi-strategy approaches.
The study found that for almost all traditional firms (97%) regulatory status is a priority in choosing a liquidity/execution partner such as an exchange, brokerage or OTC desk. The report presents findings from a research study conducted between August and October 2022, after the collapse of digital asset prices in the spring and summer. Several different types of institutions, including asset managers, traditional hedge funds, crypto hedge funds/venture capital firms, and market makers participated in the survey. More than half of participants (54%) currently have digital assets under management and 40% are researching. The institutions surveyed were based in North America (46%), Europe (41%) and Asia (13%).
“While long-term conviction in the space remains, we’re seeing firms take a more cautious, risk-averse approach when selecting counterparties,” said Danny Balough, who leads product strategy and research at Bullish. “We executed the study after the upheaval in the digital assets sector earlier this year, when the market hit lows, similar to where we find ourselves now. Our questions specifically targeted longer-term investment views with a high degree of granularity, given what we know about the historical volatility of cryptocurrency prices.”
Among the key findings:
- A large number of institutions (76%) in the space are holding cryptocurrencies (e.g., Bitcoin), making cryptocurrencies the biggest portion of crypto assets under management.
- Regulatory status and counterparty risk are the top two listed factors for institutions in choosing an execution and liquidity partner. However, among those who actually manage digital assets today, deepest liquidity available trumps regulatory status as the primary factor for 51% of investors.
- Most professional investors (85%) say it is important to be able to choose liquidity partners who also offer participation in yield opportunities.
- Europe is relatively more engaged with crypto assets, while North America is the most heavily involved with derivatives, reflecting the regulatory uncertainty in the U.S.
- Cryptoassets are favored by those with existing digital asset portfolios while those not currently in the market favor exchange traded-funds or products.
