HashKey Group, a Hong Kong-based digital asset company, has launched a new wealth management platform for professional and institutional investors.
In the April 14th announcement, HashKey Quote The reason given for the move into the wealth management space was “great demand from investors for access to crypto assets”.
Deng Chao, CEO of HashKey Capital, the group’s venture capital arm, said the service will provide a solution that can help capitalize on the “growing opportunities of crypto assets.”
HashKey points to a 2022 study by consulting firm Boston Consulting Group, which found that 0.3% of personal wealth is invested in cryptocurrencies, compared to 25% in stocks.
It claims that this indicates that there is “potentially strong demand for crypto assets in the future.” This is the sentiment he shared with BSG when it first published the report.
September 13th, HashKey announced It has been granted a “Type 9 asset management license” by the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong, allowing it to manage portfolios containing only crypto assets, which may have paved the way for its latest offering.
