Interview in SPHERE magazine, which is aimed at Swiss asset and investment managers (20.6.22)

"MANY OF THE 20,000 CRYPTOCURRENCIES WILL DISAPPEAR FROM THE SCENE"

Interview on sphere.swiss with Christian Marcel Ott, CEO, CAM Schweiz AG
Link to original article sphere.swiss: Here

From Elsa Floret

Despite the massive correction of the cryptocurrency market since May, Christian Marcel Ott remains optimistic about its potential. The CEO of CAM Switzerland believes that private investors are now aware of the high risks of such an investment. His management company, which specializes in crypto investments, has launched a listed exchange-traded product - ETP - with cryptocurrencies.

Are cryptocurrencies still attractive as an investment after the drastic market correction?
Absolutely
, the potential is enormous in my opinion. So far, investors who have been brave enough to buy cryptocurrencies have mostly been rewarded with high profits. Leaving aside the correction, there is no more lucrative investment than Bitcoin, Ethereum and some other cryptocurrencies generated in the last decade. Retail investors now understand that it is an investment with increased risk.
In the extremely fast-moving and innovative crypto market, new projects are being created practically every day. Only by far not all projects are crowned with success. To manage the risk, we recommend our clients an investment horizon of three to five years, which assumes that they should not have medium to long-term capital needs. Also, the investment amount should not exceed 10% of total assets and each case should be considered individually.

Many private investors and also institutional investors have not yet taken the step into the world of cryptocurrencies.
In fact,
cryptocurrencies are still uncharted territory for many and have therefore not yet made their way into many portfolios. Incidentally, the current volatility will exacerbate this trend.
However, I am convinced that this area will become interesting and investable for all investors due to new insights into this asset class and the professionalization of investment solutions and.

In your opinion, what is the right way to invest in cryptocurrencies?
I
advise investors against a very active strategy, i.e. buying and selling cryptocurrencies frequently. I also recommend contacting people who have the necessary knowledge and are very familiar with the market. You should not invest in an area that you do not understand. This wisdom is especially true in this case. Many of the 20,000 cryptocurrencies that currently exist will disappear from the scene in the coming years. Monitoring the market takes a lot of time, but it is essential, especially since the subject matter is often extremely complex. And investors don't have the time to do it.

Is now a good time to invest? If so, how high should the weighting be?
It
is not too late to enter, because we are at the beginning of a megatrend.At the moment, the market's most severe correction to date offers many attractive entry opportunities. The variety of different protocols and the continuous development of Web 3.0 are also interesting.
We recommend a weighting of 4% to 6% in portfolios, as this does not significantly affect the risk ratios. In the retail sector, a weighting of up to 10% is also conceivable.

CAM Switzerland is an asset management company that invests exclusively in cryptocurrencies. Where is your target market?
Private clients
who only have small amounts of money to invest have not been offered a professional solution until now. This gave rise to the idea for the creation of an asset management company specializing exclusively in cryptocurrency investments.That is why we have become the contact point for private investors, institutional clients, asset managers and family offices, for whom we develop customized solutions.

What investment solution does CAM Switzerland offer?
In
ourexperience, the two most important requirements are security and liquidity. Therefore, we offer a discretionary mandate to clients who wish to invest directly in currencies and keep them safe. However, for many professional and retail investors, tradability and regulation are important concerns, which we meet perfectly with our actively managed ETP - Exchange-Traded Product. With this easily tradable solution on the stock exchange, we can also eliminate issuer risk. Thanks to the close cooperation and research of our partners, such as PWC, we were able to structure a suitable instrument that meets our requirements in terms of security while allowing daily adjustments.

Christian Marcel Ott is CEO of CAM Switzerland. He spent over 10 years in the traditional banking sector, where he gained extensive investment experience. In 2017, he first became aware of cryptocurrencies. He quickly recognized their potential. The lack of managed solutions for retail investors and institutional clients gave rise to the idea of founding an asset management company that invests exclusively in cryptocurrencies.
