Standard Chartered initiates research coverage of crypto assets

London – Responding to rapidly growing institutional interest in publicly-traded digital assets, Standard Chartered’s Global Research team has initiated coverage of crypto assets with in-depth reports on Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

The crypto research team is led by Geoff Kendrick, who also heads emerging markets FX (West), and includes quantitative strategist Melissa Chan and Europe economist Christopher Graham.  The team will provide insights to clients looking to invest in or trade crypto assets, keeping them up to date with the latest developments and pricing outlook.

“The gap between traditional finance and the digital world is narrowing by the day,” said Eric Robertsen, global head of Research and chief strategist for Standard Chartered. “As our clients begin exploring cryptocurrencies, other digital assets and decentralised finance, we aim to add value to their investment and risk-management strategies and help them navigate and incorporate this new asset class into their businesses.”
