One good opening question to the advisor could be to ask their thoughts on whether cryptocurrencies are an investment vehicle in their own right. The response will give a good indication of how the rest of the conversation will go.
Based on the answer to the first question, the conversation could end abruptly or, potentially, be the seed for a good relationship. If the signs are positive, you will want to ask additional questions. Here are a few to consider.
A good follow-up question is whether the advisor has invested in crypto personally. An advisor interested in the crypto space is one thing, but it could be a red flag if they’re unwilling to put their own money at risk.
Do you have any cryptocurrency holdings in your portfolio?
