Cryptoassets will be available to Goldman investors at some point in Q2, comments from an incoming senior executive quoted by CNBC suggest.
Bitcoin (BTC) and some altcoins will soon be available to Goldman Sachs clients, according to a new mainstream media report.
Released by CNBC on March 31, comments from an interview with Mary Rich, global head of digital assets for the bank's private wealth management division, confirm plans to offer cryptoassets to investors.
Goldman exec: Crypto access coming in "near term"
The move will make Goldman the second major lender to open up the world of cryptocurrency to its clients, and comes weeks after a pioneering move by Morgan Stanley.
″We are working closely with teams across the firm to explore ways to offer thoughtful and appropriate access to the ecosystem for private wealth clients, and that is something we expect to offer in the near-term,” CNBC quoted Rich as saying.
Morgan Stanley's rollout is due to launch in April, with Goldman later in Q2.
