There Is A Greater Reason – Why All Financial Advisors, Advise A Balanced Portfolio Approach

Please or Sign Up to continue reading ...

The adoption of digital currencies and assets, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and security tokens has grown significantly since the start of the pandemic and the growth is expected to continue. Traditional finance investments are also becoming digital which offer known structures backed by assets that have consistent return profiles and calculated risk opportunities. Digital assets are becoming mainstream.

Outside of stable coins, existing tokens come without any protection or government assistance and are known to be volatile. We are looking to offer a modern-day contemporary instrument with an institutional-grade structure, that will carry the attributes of saving first, leverage second, and the option to trade, third – an instrument with a Risk Mitigation strategy. 

Balanced Portfolio Approach

Cryptocurrencies have proven to be volatile. Prior to six months ago, cryptocurrencies weren’t correlated with the transitional equities market; however, they have become so. Therefore, they are not a hedge as believed to be previously. Even stable coins have proven problematic.

The algorithmic stable coin, Terra (UST) lost $400 billion in market capitalization in a matter of days when it crashed in May 2022. The crash was due to huge withdrawals which pushed the coin to lose its dollar peg.

The market needs portfolio balances within the Digital Asset world. Financial analysts and wealth managers always recommend a balanced portfolio. The typical balance is equity, bonds, cash, and alternative assets. The current world of digital assets provides volatile alternative asset investments. To add a digital asset investment opportunity tied to the value of real-world equity assets would add value to a portfolio. 


Our goal is to add wealth preservation to the list of available digital assets. These investments could be principal protected from potential losses while offering upside opportunities in cash flow and appreciation value. Outside of the similar traditional asset, the format of digital assets offers the benefits of transparency, transferability, and instant settlement.
