The largest cryptocurrency market Coinbase has surfaced using a 401(K) provider, ForUsAll Inc., allowing workers to invest up to 5% of the 401 (K) contributions in cryptocurrencies, starting in July, documented WSJ. Brett Tejpaul, Head of Institutional Coverage at Coinbase stated,
“When we created our institutional platform, our initial focus was making cryptocurrency accessible to institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.”
The next development is to broaden the organization’s reach and enlarge access to cryptocurrency via 401ks, he included.
Founded in 2012, ForUsAll has 400 employer clients, however, the executives did not disclose exactly how many have signed up to the cryptocurrency platform so far.
The business intends to provide Americans the tools to”build a brighter financial future” and accessibility to alternative investments which were exclusive to both wealthy and professional investors, noted firm CEO, Jeff Schulte.
The organization has $1.7 billion in retirement plan assets, representing a small segment of the $22 trillion retirement account marketplace .
But this marks the first step from the retirement-account market to the crypto space that’s experiencing heightened mainstream interest and adoption. David Ramirez, Co-founder, and Chief Investment Officer stated,
“The reality is that alternative asset classes which increasingly include small allocations to cryptocurrency have become an important part of many institutional portfolios.”
