BRISBANE, Monday October 11 2021 -- Monochrome Asset Management today announced the formation of Monochrome Research, a specialist division focused on providing expert-led research and insights to guide institutional investors and financial services professionals as they navigate and evaluate the digital asset industry.

“Following the launch of the Monochrome Bitcoin Fund, we are seeing a defined need from portfolio allocators and professional investors for authoritative and reliable research into digital assets,” said Jeff Yew, CEO and founder of Monochrome.

As discussion of pressing topics including regulation, advisor ethics relating to digital assets and effective valuation of those assets enter conversation in Australia, markets will require reliable references to guide decision making.

"Monochrome Research is responding to demand from the financial advice industry for quality research on digital assets that is informative and easy to consume,” said David Hobart, CIO at Monochrome and overseer of Monochrome Research.

“This division was created to provide a balanced perspective, enabling advisers to have better informed conversations with their clients." continued Mr Hobart.

Selected content produced by Monochrome Research contains Financial Planning Association (FPA) approved assessment enabling advisers to receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points, in addition to providing their clients with quality information for their digital asset investment education.
