Ivana Rouse Quoted in Fundfire on Growth of Cryptocurrency Funds

Ivana Rouse, a partner in the investment management practice at Akin Gump, has been quoted in the Fundfire article “Bitcoin Boom Speeds On as Managers Target Big Investors,” which looks at the soaring popularity of cryptocurrency funds.

The article reports that, despite the growth, many regulatory and legal questions surrounding cryptocurrency investing remain. It is also still a very speculative market, the article notes.

As hedge funds in the space proliferate, investors are focusing on issues around risk, such as fund terms, including how and when they can withdraw funds, said Rouse. “Liquidity and valuations are the biggest concerns for investors. It’s not so much the fees and performance you see in standard hedge funds,” she added.
