Know someone who would be interested in this event? Share it with them!

Five years ago, you could own one Bitcoin for about $500. As of August 2021, the price has skyrocketed by 89x to over US$45,000. Cryptocurrencies have outperformed traditional markets; these blowout returns have transformed cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum into household names and everyday news headlines.

However, investing directly in cryptocurrencies can be of high risk, and learning the process of investing via crypto exchanges can be a daunting task. How can investors overcome this entry hurdle? How can investors get exposure to crypto without actually owning any?

Investing through crypto funds represents one such opportunity where investors can get exposure to the crypto asset class without directly buying and owning cryptocurrencies. Strong investor interest has seen crypto funds’ cumulative assets under management (AUM) balloon to over USD 25.1 billion in 2020.

Are crypto funds more advantageous than going direct? What are the pros and cons of either channel?

Join us for an educational webinar where we learn about crypto investing and accessing it via funds as well as other hot topics: 

  1. What are crypto funds?

  2. What are some of the investing strategies that different crypto funds use?

  3. How does crypto fit into your investment portfolio?

  4. Will Crypto funds outperform Crypto?

  5. How will crypto meet the regulatory challenge?

  6. How can you protect and benefit from crypto volatility?

Tune in on 7 October at 5pm (SGT) with industry veterans
