$7B investment firm recommends crypto to beat currency debasement

Contrarian investment firm, Horizon Kinetics, is advising investors to seek exposure to crypto assets amid mounting global economic challenges.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Horizon’s co-founder Peter Doyle warned that the coronavirus pandemic and growing debt will usher an inflection point for the world economy, predicting:

“There is no turning back after the pandemic and globally there is a debt problem and it means either default or currency debasement.”

Horizon’s Paradigm fund made a 1% allocation into Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust in 2016, with the investment now representing 10% of the fund’s portfolio.

“People should have exposure to the asset class,” asserted Doyle, emphasizing Bitcoin’s capped supply amid concerns regarding currency debasement.

“The best long-term investors tend to have concentrated portfolios and low turnover in holdings as they let the companies they own grow and compound returns,” he added.

Horizon Kinetics currently boasts three of the top-10 performing mutual funds of 2021 so far, according to Morningstar.

In addition to its crypto allocation, the firm’s top-performing funds have benefited from long-term investments in land owners and real estate developers across North America, including Texas Pacific Land, Dream Unlimited and Brookfield Asset Management.
