Does Bitcoin Have a Place in Institutional Multi-Asset Portfolios?

But Bitcoin—and cryptoassets in general—continue to demand the world’s attention. Undoubtedly motivated by meteoric returns over the past year or so, institutional investors are considering whether it is time to get in on the action.
