What’s more, 40% thought crypto was important to augmenting their investment strategy and over 66% intended to increase their crypto holdings within the next 12 to 24 months.
The BNY Mellon’s survey process involved 200 participants, which included 56 single-family offices and 144 multi-family offices, all managing over $150 million in assets.
Half of the participants were from the United States, with others from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Italy, Germany, India, Brazil, and others. The data collection occurred between October 14 and November 8 of 2021.
