Golfers’ expanding relationship with digital assets
Whether you’re an asset manager, hedge fund manager or running money for a family office, it might be time to consider digital assets and, specifically, crypto as part of the investment plan.
It’s a time-honored tradition. During casual rounds of golf in the U.S., and in countries around the world, players take the time to speak to their playing partners. Topics range from family to food and politics to sports. Often, the conversation turns to business and finance. In fact, golf and finance have been inexorably linked seemingly forever.
The chats about money, whether taking place on the first tee, walking down a fairway, or at the 19th hole, are evolving. That’s because the younger generation of golfers are managing their investments in new and varied ways. Relatedly, in a sport that cherishes its own long-standing traditions, we’re seeing younger Tour pros expanding their investment portfolios. Guys like Joel Dahmen, Bryson DeChambeau and Ian Poulter, for instance, are already firmly entrenched in cryptocurrency. (World-famous athletes, like Tom Brady and Steph Curry, are investing in digital assets as well.) And, the parallels are clear: Both professional golf and the financial markets are being disrupted—and change can be good.
Although a relatively new investment option, crypto is gaining steam among the younger generation attuned to the new economy, Web3, and so on. Crypto’s appeal is also burgeoning among institutional investors seeking to diversify their portfolios.
Naturally, there are countless digital asset financial service companies to provide liquidity, brokerage services, and more for crypto investors. OSL, the Hong Kong-based digital asset trading platform, is a little different than many of the other providers. The boutique brand’s brokerage desk is set up to provide value-added “white glove” service and recommendations around the clock. Besides the obvious ability to make trades, the firm has “technology to support large-scale coin trading every day, a massive [and ever-growing] exchange that contributes to liquidity, plus a SaaS business,” said Jeffrey Howard, North American Head of Business Development and Institutional Sales, OSL.
Whether you’re an asset manager, hedge fund manager or running money for a family office, it might be time to consider digital assets and, specifically, crypto as part of the investment plan. And, when that time comes, OSL will be there to build meaningful, prosperous relationships and deliver on its famous white-glove service.
