Profit & Loss series: Cryptocurrencies across Latam.
Carlos Mosquera Benatuil, the CEO of Mexico-based Solidus Group talks to Profit & Loss about why cryptoassets are more than just a vehicle for speculation in Latin America.Open article
Latin America’s Wealthy Families Are Buying Up Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency craze suddenly doesn’t seem so crazy in countries that know a thing or two about hyperinflation.
But even the biggest crypto bulls advise caution because digital currencies are probably the most volatile tradeable assets out there. “This is an asymmetric investment where we recommend putting in 1 percent of the portfolio,” says Solidus’s Mosquera. “If there’s a doomsday scenario and in three years you lose 1 percent of your assets, you can make up for that with the 99 percent in a couple of months. But the potential upside of that 1 percent can be much greater than what the 99 percent can do in a decade.”Open Article

Crypto-Assets: Too Big to Ignore, Too Challenging to Trade?
But despite this potential utility value, Mosquera Benatuil explained that crypto-assets are still regarded as high risk investments and therefore many of the more institutional sized players only want to hold a small amount relative to their overall portfolio.
“This is a super high risk investment for institutions, and that's why we're recommending to treat it as an asymmetric investment. So these firms usually invest one to two percent tops from their traditional portfolio in these assets. In the region in Latin America region we’ve actually seen some families divest from gold and invest that same amount of money into crypto, so they clearly feel like it is a new store of value. But like any new asset class, they only invest in it as a small percentage of their total portfolio,” he said.Open article
