What this means
DeVere Group CEO and founder, Nigel Green, explained why the world’s millionaires are attracted to financial assets as cryptos.
“As the survey shows, this impressive performance is drawing the attention of wealthy investors who increasingly understand that digital currencies are the future of money and they don’t want to be left in the past,” he said.
Most of the high net worth individuals polled by the financial firm got triggered into planning to buy cryptos by the latest institutional buying.
“No doubt that many of these HNWs, who were polled, have seen that a major driver of the price surge is the growing interest being expressed by institutional investors, who are capitalizing on the high returns that the digital asset class is currently offering,” Green added.
