E65: CEO of Bitwise on How Institutions Access Crypto

E65 • May 9, 2024 • 34 mins

Hunter Horsley, CEO of Bitwise Asset Management, sits down with David Weisburd to discuss the institutional investment case for Bitcoin and digital assets. In addition, they discuss the diversification benefits of digital assets for portfolio construction, bull arguments for Bitcoin, and expanding the GDP of the internet through increasing use cases of public blockchains.

Key Points

  • Digital assets like Bitcoin offer a low correlation to traditional assets and can provide diversification benefits to investment portfolios, with the optimal contribution to return and volatility being between 2 to 5 percent.
  • The evolution of new computing platforms, such as public blockchains, follows a pattern where initial capabilities are followed by developer experimentation, leading to a variety of use cases that expand over time, as seen with the progression from personal computers to the internet and mobile technology.
  • Bitwise aims to be a specialist partner for investors in the crypto space, providing a range of products from simple ETFs to multi-strategy solutions, and serves a diverse client base that includes wealth management teams, family offices, and institutional investors.
