Alternative investments platform CAIS announced on Tuesday a partnership with Galaxy Fund Management, the crypto-centric firm founded by hedge fund maven Mike Novogratz to further advisor education on digital currencies.

CAIS will add Galaxy Fund Management’s cryptocurrency knowledge on CAIS IQ, its AI-powered adaptive learning system that serves as an education platform for advisors. Both the CFP Board and the IWI offer continuing education credits via CAIS IQ.

Galaxy, in turn, has developed a digital assets curriculum across courses offered on CAIS’s platform, with the first course serving as an introduction to digital assets as alternative investments, including videos featuring Novogratz.

"CAIS' reputation as the platform of choice for advisors seeking alternative investment access and education makes them the perfect partner," said Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital, in released comments. "With the current macro environment and heightened interest in digital assets, it's more important than ever that we empower advisors to have informed client conversations and arm them with institutional-quality products that can integrate easily into client portfolios."

The CAIS platform offers advisors access to alternative investments via a streamlined, digital process, with due diligence provided by Mercer.
