ARK Invest’s 2023 Report Recommends 19.4% Bitcoin Allocation

Data from ARK illustrates how well Bitcoin has performed over longer periods when compared to other significant traditional financial assets. While other major assets averaged 5.7% over the last seven years, Bitcoin’s annualized return was 44% on average.

The analysts point out that long-term asset ownership has paid off for Bitcoin investors with “long-term time horizons.” 

“According to our analysis, in 2015, the optimal allocation to maximize risk-adjusted returns on a 5-year time horizon would have been 0.5%. Since then, on the same basis, the average allocation to Bitcoin would have been 4.8%, and in 2023 alone, 19.4%,” stated in the annual report.

According to ARK’s analysis, institutional investments from the $250 trillion global investable asset base may allocate 19.4% of their portfolio to Bitcoin in a hypothetical scenario.

The price of one Bitcoin might reach $120,000 if all assets were invested by just 1% of the global asset base.  The price of Bitcoin would reach $550,000 if the whole global investment base assigned the maximum average Sharpe ratio of 4.8% between 2015 and 2023.

ARK has allocated 19.4% of its portfolio to Bitcoin based on a comprehensive analysis of empirical market data to optimize risk-adjusted returns.
