They offer diversification from traditional portfolio holdings in a low-interest-rate environment and as a hedge against inflation. A developed investment suite such as CV VC existing AMCs and this new dynamic CV CB Digital Asset AMC, underpinned by Switzerland’s regulatory environment, delivers better access for investors seeking asset class diversification through greater risk-adjusted returns.
