New research by eToro aims to test the views of IFAs (Independent Financial Advisers) on their understanding and attitude towards cryptoassets. The findings include:
- More than a quarter (26%) of advised clients (for pensions and investment advice) hold or have held cryptoassets.
- More than three in five (63%) IFAs have been asked about cryptoassets by their clients.
In the report, we examine the opinion of advisers on the investment case for cryptoassets, and the difference in attitude between advised clients and crypto investors more generally. It also examines whether advisers are seen as a potential source of help for those seeking to invest in crypto, and whether IFAs would consider offering such guidance.
Please note that CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 65% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
