We have reached the point where many family offices are open to some form of crypto-assets investment, and a number have allocated serious resources to crypto-assets.

Somewhere in a cupboard, I have a set of eight contract notes dated 8 January 1975, when I invested—upwards of £100 per holding!—in a range of UK equities. Reader, I called the bottom of the market—a dangerous thing for a young man to do.
