Base Layer Episode 036 - Marcos Veremis (Cambridge Associates)

June 4, 2019

In one of the most important episodes on Base Layer to date we speak with Marcos Veremis, Managing Director at Cambridge Associates. CA, as of 2018, had $389 billion in assets under advisement of some of the largest endowments, family offices and pensions. They are considered in many ways the gold standard for investment consulting, outsourced portfolio solutions, research services and tools and performance monitoring across various asset classes. In Q1 of 2019 Marcos and his team published Cryptoassets: Venture into the Unknown; a paper detailing "although the crypto industry remains in its infancy, we think institutional investors should begin exploring it" - an amazing statement from the likes of CA. We discuss the paper, the work that went into it, why they wrote it and what the future may look like in the space.
