Cryptoassets and Blockchain: An Investor’s Guide

April 2018
Matthew Lipton, CFA, Equity Research Analyst; Ranjit Ramachandran, CFA, Equity Research Analyst; Matthew Ross, CFA, Research Associate; and Lee Saba, Principal, Trading Technologies, for Wellington Management

Are bitcoin and other cryptoassets a revolutionary innovation, a bubble ready to pop, or something in between?

Can such a new, strange, and volatile creature have a place in the portfolio of an institutional investor? Why all the excitement about the underlying technology, blockchain, and its potential to disrupt a range of industries? We address these questions in three sections: An educational Q&A, an exploration of blockchain, and considerations for investors.
