Mr. Moss, in a GSR news release, said GSR will play a role in helping hedge funds, insurers and institutions eying digital assets now take their first steps into the digital asset space.
A spokesman for the firm said in an email that digital assets include "digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and various other tokens, often tied to projects. They don't include tokenized real estate, tokenized private investments – but that's not to say that they won't be a possibility down the road."

Mr. Moss was co-chief operating officer at hedge fund firm Winton. He left late in 2019 after a 14-year stint with the firm. A Winton spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
