Digital asset investment products saw minor outflows totalling US$4m last week in what was the quietest trading week since October 2020.

Minor outflows were seen in Bitcoin totalling US$7m last week while trading volumes in investment products totalled just US$1.58bn for the whole week, the lowest since October 2020.

In recent weeks there has been a regional divide in Bitcoin inflows with North American providers seeing consistent inflows while their European counterparts have continued to see outflows, suggesting a geographic divergence in sentiment at present.

Ethereum saw very minor inflows totalling US$0.8m while Binance and Cardano saw inflows of US$0.4m and US$0.6m respectively.

Multi-asset investment products were the most popular last week with inflows totalling US$1.2m. Inflows year-to-date now total US$362m representing 16.5% of AuM (assets under management), proportionally being larger than Bitcoin (15.6% of AuM) and Ethereum (9.9% of AuM). While the inflows remain relatively small in comparison to Bitcoin and Ethereum the data does imply that investors are increasingly looking to diversify their digital asset holdings.
