On Purpose, With Tyrone Ross

“I think getting smart on crypto is one of the biggest business development opportunities for advisers of the next handful of years.”


The story of 2022-2023 is the entry of advisers into the market.

In this episode of “On Purpose,” host Tyrone Ross will be joined by Matt Hougan, CIO of cryptoasset manager Bitwise. Together, the two will discuss the joint benchmark survey of adviser attitudes towards the crypto asset class, provided by Bitwise and ETF Trends. Over 600 advisers were surveyed for the report which revealed some of the main factors of the RIA industry's views on crypto. How many advisers hold cryptoassets in their personal accounts? Why are there disparities between client allocations and advisers’ personal holdings in crypto? What aspects are holding investors and advisers back?

While engagement with cryptoassets is on the rise amongst advisers, client involvement is being outpaced. The key to relieving concerns on regulation, volatility, and more surrounding crypto will be continued education.

Both retail and institutional investors continue to have a significant presence in crypto. Will 2022 be the year the RIA industry finally follows suit?

    This show is produced, announced, and edited by Michele Musso with additional production support from Eleanor Pahl. The theme song is Walk With Swag.
