The Fidelity Digital AssetsSM 2021 Institutional Investor Digital Assets Study tracked institutional investors' behavior in the face of an unprecedented health crisis and market turmoil, providing an exciting look at investors' preferences and perceptions of digital assets at a crucial inflection point for the industry. The results show that the market conditions of 2020 were a catalyst for many investors.
For 44% of investors surveyed, it increased their likelihood of investing in digital assets, and for 40%, it had no impact. For the second year in a row, the survey found that European investors have a more progressive view towards digital assets than Americans when comparing the responses across all categories. Even so, Asian investors, who we surveyed for the first time this past year, are by far the most accepting of digital assets, with more than 70% of investors surveyed currently invested in digital assets.
The research survey for this study was led by Fidelity Consulting in coordination with Fidelity Digital AssetsSM and The Fidelity Center for Applied TechnologySM. Conducted by Coalition Greenwich, the research followed a similar methodology to the previous two years, utilizing a detailed survey to better understand the overall attitudes and behaviors of institutional investors as it relates to digital assets. Field work was conducted between December 2, 2020, and April 2, 2021, with a total of 1,100 blind interviews of professionals from a variety of firms, completed via a mix of online surveys and 1:1 phone sessions.
