Crypto Asset Management
Sep 30, 2023
According to a report by Alliance Bernstein, a large asset manager with approximately $646 billion under management, estimates that the institutional Bitcoin asset management sector is expected to grow to a whopping $650 billion industry within the next five years. The crypto asset management industry is currently valued at around $50 billion and is expected to grow significantly to over $500 billion in assets within the next five years. For perspective, the entire crypto market is currently valued around $1 Trillion dollars total.
In other news, the approval prospects for a Bitcoin ETF have brightened as the crypto fund industry is set to soar. Analysts at Bloomberg Intelligence have put the odds of approval for a spot Bitcoin ETF this year at 75%. The same analysts believe that the chances of approval will rise to 95% by the end of 2024.
It is worth noting that the approval of a Bitcoin ETF could dramatically increase individual and institutional investments in the cryptocurrency sector, drawing parallels to how the iShares MSCI Brazil ETF and the VanEck Brazil Small-Cap ETF have democratized investing in the Brazilian market.
