Cryptocurrencies, despite their volatility, have become commonplace in the portfolios of both retail and institutional investors. More and more securities have crypto holdings. But do you fully understand how much exposure you really have to crypto?

DIH now offers data that links securities worldwide with their crypto holdings. The data covers exchange-traded products, mutual funds, and listed equities that hold crypto assets.

The Crypto Holdings of Securities in Your Portfolio Can Cause Risk Management Nightmares.

No matter which side you take in the cryptocurrency debate, it is a fact that the financial markets have embraced crypto assets. Listed securities have dramatically increased their crypto exposure despite their extreme volatility. It is this high volatility that is the problem – you need to know to what extent securities are exposed to crypto assets so that you can manage their risks.
