Goldman Sachs eyes rolling out crypto investment services
Goldman Sachs has been gearing up for the crypto space in recent weeks, given that its website is giving digital assets a keen eye.
The newly appointed global head of digital assets at Goldman’s private wealth management division, March Rich, recently disclosed that the bank was considering availing a “full-spectrum” of crypto investments through derivatives, physical Bitcoin, or traditional investment vehicles.
Therefore, Goldman Sachs is edging closer to rolling out its first investment vehicles for crypto assets for clients in its private wealth management group.
“Some Goldman clients feel like we’re sitting at the dawn of a new Internet in some ways and are looking for ways to participate in this space.”
“We are working closely with teams across the firm to explore ways to offer thoughtful and appropriate access to the ecosystem for private equity clients, and that is something we look forward to delivering in the near term.”
The bank recently disclosed that it was looking at ways of meeting increasing client demand to own and invest in Bitcoin while still staying on the right side of the law, Blockchain.News reported.
