Director of Research, Managing Partner
This video is a recording of a live webinar by Director of Research Greg Leonberger, FSA, EA, MAAA, and Research Associate Nic Solecki covering cryptocurrency and other digital assets. While not an endorsement of cryptocurrency, Greg and Nic approach the topic from several angles, beginning by addressing common misconceptions, how blockchains work and why they require cryptocurrency, the evolution of digital assets as a potential asset class, sectors and subsectors within digital assets, and technology and concepts that have arisen alongside cryptocurrency, including smart contracts and decentralized finance (DeFi). They then examine adoption across the globe — from consumer to commercial to institutional investors — and provide an overview of performance and investment characteristics for digital assets, including risk/return profiles, liquidity, volatility, performance during drawdowns, and correlations to traditional asset classes. Finally, they address the market risks and most important considerations for investors. The webinar finished with a Q&A, which we have also included in this recording.
