Ivana Rouse Cryptocurrency Funds Work Featured by Wall Street Journal

In its article “As Other Markets Stall, Traders Rush Into Bitcoin Boom,” The Wall Street Journal has featured the work of Akin Gump investment management partner Ivana Rouse in the field of cryptocurrency funds.

The story focuses on traders who have shifted their focus from commodities markets to cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, that, while riskier, offer potentially more significant returns.

Rouse, whose practice focuses on the formation and representation of private investment funds and their management, is noted as typically advising hedge funds and PE firms. However, the WSJ reports, in a shift consistent with greater interest in the cryptocurrency market, she stated that she now spends much of her time setting up cryptocurrency funds and fielding calls from aspiring fund managers regarding such funds.
