65.8% of European investors hold crypto assets within their portfolio
A survey carried out by analysts at Robo.cash, the investment platform, found that 65.8% of European investors hold crypto assets within their portfolio.
Crypto assets rank third in popularity when compared to others behind P2P investments and stocks.
The number of investors who increased their holding in crypto during 2021 is at 42%, up from 31% from the year before.
The majority of those investing in the space (82.9%) limited their crypto investments to a quarter of their total portfolio, while 34.2% of respondents said that had no crypto in their portfolios at all.
The determining factor in acquiring an asset is the combination of reliability and profitability.
For this reason, according to respondents, the best options for investing are stocks and P2P payments.
Gold, on the other hand, appears to be falling out of favour with investors, despite its track record spanning millennia.
“Apparently, the traditional asset, despite its fairly high reliability, finds little response from the “new generation” of modern investors”, researchers said.
15.1% view crypto as the most attractive asset to investors while 3.2% have that view of the precious metal.
Most people (38.4%) view stocks as the best form of investment will 20.6% would give the title to P2P investments.
“The interest in crypto is explained, rather, by the broad outlook of P2P investors in search of optimal investment opportunities”, add the analysts. “Another supporting factor is the steadily increasing strategic trend. However, the extremely high volatility of cryptocurrency prices is undoubtedly a serious deterrent. In this sense, the guaranteed high profitability inherent in P2P investments is much more interesting for European investors, and this interest is growing. It is confirmed by the fact that 46.7% of surveyed intend to increase their share of P2P investments in portfolios this year”.
