The Latest Institutional Investment in BTC

Plus Grayscale nearly doubles its AUM since Nov 1

Happy Tuesday, Blockfolians

The Lede

At this point, the question is “which institution is announcing their bitcoin position this week?”

The answer this time around is the Ruffer Investment Company out of London. The firm’s $620,000,000 multi-strategies fund allocated 2.5% of the fund or ~$15m to BTC, as per a recent filing. This happened in November. In total, Ruffer has more than $20B in assets under management.

For every one of these investments that we get visibility into, there may be many more similar deals behind the scenes. This is to say nothing of the firms that are on the verge of allocating, being pushed closer every time another peer dives in, de-risking the space further.

It’s an exciting time to be here.
