Furthermore, almost half (47%) of respondents said that they would like to see digital assets in their investment portfolios.

Most investors (72%) choose crypto investment products, while 57% prefer to buy crypto assets directly and another 57% prefer to buy an investment product that holds digital asset companies. Tom JESSOP, president of Fidelity Digital Assets, commented on the survey results:

“We’ve seen a maturation of interest in digital assets from early adopters, like crypto hedge funds, to traditional institutional investors like family offices and endowments.”

Financial advisors (74%) and family offices (80%) are the ones to view the benefits of digital assets most favourably among the respondents.
