Who will have access to tools from NYDIG and FS Investments

NYDIG and FS Investments announced the creation of a joint bitcoin fund, which will be available exclusively to clients of Morgan Stanley Investment Bank. Thus, the financial corporation has expanded the instruments, which allow making transactions with cryptocurrency. At the same time, Morgan Stanley will receive a part of the funds, which are charged from investors for the use of the fund.
In March last year, Morgan Stanley was the first among major U.S. financial corporations to launch an opportunity for its customers to invest in cryptocurrency instruments. Three bitcoin funds are already in operation for this purpose, but only large-cap clients with $2 million or more in assets have access to them. For corporate clients, this threshold should be at $5 million. In addition, they must have been clients of the bank for at least 6 months.
Morgan Stanley notes that the use of cryptocurrency-based instruments is an extremely promising area, which opens up huge opportunities for investors who are not afraid of risky assets. Clients can invest no more than 2.5% of their investment portfolio in such funds.
Morgan Stanley said that together with NYDIG and FS the company plans to further develop the bitcoin direction.
