That has helped big US banks look at digital assets with less skepticism.</p><p>Goldman's private wealth management business mostly caters to clients that hold at least $25 million in investment capacity. Rich said a group of clients is looking at bitcoin as an inflationary hedge and the macro environment of the past 12 months has played a factor there. "There are also a large contingent of clients who feel like we're sitting at the dawn of a new Internet in some ways and are looking for ways to participate in this space," she said.</p><p>Earlier this month, Morgan Stanley announced it would offer <a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/bitcoin-morgan-stanley-to-offer-wealthy-clients-btc-fund-access-2021-3-1030221077'utm_source=markets&amp;utm_medium=ingest">wealthy clients access to three bitcoin funds</a>. Two are run by Galaxy Digital, headed by Mike Novogratz, while one will be jointly managed by asset manager FS Investments and NYDIG.</p><p>Goldman could offer similar bitcoin funds, as well as other ways to invest that are "more akin to the underlying asset class, which trades 24-7 globally," Rich said. She said some bitcoin funds, like Galaxy's, can only be traded once a quarter.</p><p>"We're still in the very nascent stages of this ecosystem. No one knows exactly how it will evolve, or what shape it will be," Rich said. "But I think it's fairly safe to expect it will be part of our future."</p><p>Bitcoin was last trading 1.1% lower at $58,057 on Wednesday, but it is up 96% year-to-date and about 800% since this time last year.</p><p><a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/bitcoin-goldman-sachs-digital-assets-offering-rich-investors-q2-wealth-2021-3-1030263727#comments">Join the conversation about this story &#187;</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/how-symphony-seas-worlds-largest-cruise-ship-deals-with-waste-2020-3">How waste is dealt with on the world's largest cruise ship</a></p>
