A $1 Trillion Money Manager Is Adding Cryptocurrencies To Its Portfolios

Perhaps inspired by Goldman Sachs’ all-in approach to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology – including possibly launching the first Wall Street crypto trading desk, investing in Circle and securing a patent for its own settlement token – or even JP Morgan Securities buying of bitcoin-linked ETNs on foreign exchanges purportedly on behalf of its clients, another mainstream financial institution is embracing crypto.

As Bloomberg reports, Boston-based Wellington Management Co. – a massive fund company with $1 trillion AUM – is considering adding cryptocurrencies to some of its portfolios, according to a February report from one of its equity analysts.

The company’s trading systems were recently upgraded to enable trading in bitcoin derivatives like the futures contracts offered by the CBOE and CME. And it’s already adjusting portfolios to include exposure to mining and blockchain implementations by, for example, investing in select chipmakers making components” necessary for mining virtual tokens.
