Digital Assets 101: What Crypto Means for Portfolios
Headlined by cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin) and blockchain, digital assets are quickly becoming a major investable asset class. Cryptocurrencies alone have a collective market capitalization of $2.1 trillion—nearly equal to the amount of all U.S. dollars in circulation1. So, it’s not surprising that many investors are exploring the value that digital assets may add to their portfolios.
In this webinar, Invesco and ETF Trends will discuss the topic of digital assets, including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and blockchain technology, and answer your questions on this new asset class.
Join Tom Lydon, CEO of ETF Trends, as he moderates a discussion on:
An overview of what digital assets are and the broader asset class
How exposure to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology may add value to a portfolio and what to consider
Ways to get invested in digital assets

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are subject to risks similar to those of stocks.
This does not constitute a recommendation of any investment strategy or product for a particular investor. Investors should consult a financial professional before making any investment decisions.

Companies engaged in the development, enablement and acquisition of blockchain technologies are subject to a number of risks. Blockchain technology is new and many of its uses may be untested. There is no assurance that widespread adoption will occur. The extent to which companies held by the Fund utilize blockchain technology may vary. Cryptocurrencies have been and may in the future be highly volatile. The price of a digital currency could drop precipitously (including to zero) for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, regulatory changes, a crisis of confidence, flaw or operational issue in a digital currency network or a change in user preference to competing cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrencies trade on exchanges, which are largely unregulated and, therefore, are more exposed to fraud and failure than established, regulated exchanges for securities, derivatives and other currencies.
