摩根士丹利加速打造加密领域人才团队

如今越来越多的银行和传统投资公司在寻找区块链技术和数字货币领域具有丰富经验的员工。摩根士丹利是世界上最成熟的投行之一,他们正在寻找具备加密货币知识的人才,以壮大其股票研究团队。

摩根士丹利正在行动

世界上大多数与时俱进的金融公司已经设立了区块链技术部门,并且招来加密货币专家来帮助团队挖掘潜在的市场机遇。即遍那些过去唱反调的金融大亨也终于踏上了区块链浪潮。

例如,过去将比特币称为“骗局”的摩根大通首席执行官杰米·戴蒙,现在已开始探索区块链技术,并基于以太坊开发了企业级区块链项目Quorum。

现在摩根士丹利清楚地看到了数字货币的潜力。因此,该公司已经在招聘网站领英上发布了与股票研究工作相关的三个新职位,并“优先考虑具备加密货币知识的人才”。

这三个助理/分析师岗位分别针对三个领域,包括支付、通讯设备和业主有限合伙制企业相关业务。

股票分析师的角色是对某个行业进行考察研究,并根据这一分析帮助客户进行投资决策。

摩根士丹利现在为客户提供与区块链和加密货币相关的此类研究。例如,从事这项研究的分析师之一James Faucette最近就在研究虚拟货币给支付行业带来了哪些影响。

华尔街精英们的观点

一些公司一直都对数字货币和区块链技术的好处持肯定态度。其他人一开始就泼冷水,到如今才逐渐看好它的前景。

一些摩根士丹利分析师在2018年1月提出假设,由于这矿工对电力的需求高,加密货币挖矿可能为可再生能源开发商带来不错的商机。

2017年初,加密货币的市场价值大约仅170亿美元,但这一数字在2018年激增,一度攻破8000亿美元大关。当然,这种增长会让华尔街的精英们坐立不安,因为他们从不错过赚钱的机会。

虽然戴蒙称比特币为“欺诈”,贝莱德(BlackRock)集团首席执行官拉里芬克(Larry Fink)表示,它只对洗钱有用,但摩根士丹利首席执行官官詹姆斯·戈尔曼(James Gorman)采取了更为严谨的说法。

2017年9月他表示,比特币“绝不仅仅是一种时尚”。

他确实注意到比特币具有很强的投机性,但它本质上并不危险。1月份该银行的首席财务官也允许其客户交易CME集团和CBOE全球市场提供的比特币期货。

In another sign of the times, more and more traditional investment companies and banks are looking to get new employees on board that have significant experience in blockchain technology and digital currencies. Morgan Stanley is one of the world’s most established investment banks, and they are searching for candidates that have the crypto knowledge to become part of their stock research team.

Morgan Stanley Makes its Move

Most of the progressive finance firms in the world have already set up some form of blockchain division, as well as having cryptocurrency experts on board to help the teams to identify potential opportunities in the market. Even those that may have been pessimistic in the past have finally gotten on board the blockchain bandwagon.

Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan, for instance, has been one of the more vocal critics of bitcoin, is now developing their own variety of technology known as Quorum.

However, Morgan Stanley clearly sees the potential when it comes to digital currencies. With that, the firm has advertised three new positions on LinkedIn related to equity-research employment including that “knowledge of cryptocurrency is a plus.”

These specific analyst/associate positions cover three different areas: Communications equipment, master limited partnerships, and payments.

The role of equity analysts is to look at the company’s fundamentals in a certain sector and, based upon this analysis, create research which clients can use to help their investment decision-making process.

Morgan Stanley now produces this type of research for clients related to blockchain and cryptocurrencies. One of those analysts working on this research is James Faucette who, for example, recently looked at how the payment industry might be affected by virtual currencies.

General Viewpoint on Wall Street

Some firms have always been positive about the benefits of both digital currencies and blockchain technology. Others started off as being pessimistic and are only now slowly becoming more bullish on the subject.

A few Morgan Stanley analysts posited in January 2018 that cryptocurrency mining could lead to decent business opportunities for developers of renewable energy due to the high electricity demand these miners have.

At the beginning of 2017, the cryptocurrency market was only worth about $17 billion, but this figure ballooned in 2018 until pushing over the $800 billion mark. This increase, of course, made those in Wall Street sit up, as they never miss out on an opportunity to make money.

While Dimon called bitcoin a “fraud” and BlackRock’s Larry Fink explained that it was only useful for laundering money, the Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman took a more measured approach.

In September 2017, he publicized his belief that bitcoin is “certainly more than just a fad.”

While he did note that bitcoin is significantly speculative, it isn’t inherently dangerous. The CFO of the bank in January also allowed their clients to trade the bitcoin futures provided by the CME Group and Cboe Global Markets.
