Digital Asset Risk
for Institutional Investors

Institutional Solutions

Digital asset risk should be limited to the success or failure of an instrument, not the operations that support investment.

We give our clients greater confidence to invest in cryptocurrencies and other digital assets by assessing service providers’ capabilities and ensuring that their investments are properly serviced and safeguarded throughout the lifecycle.

Digital assets have risen in value dramatically since 2017. Funds of all risk appetites are adding exposure, and many dedicated funds have been launched. Regulation of the sector has not yet solidified, and the risks are often not fully understood.

Thomas Murray Digital provides trusted, independent validation of service providers – including exchanges and custodians – ensuring that their capabilities and operational safety are fully understood and satisfy investors’ requirements
