The Canadian arm of accounting behemoth KPMG has put a portion of its treasury funds into Bitcoin and Ethereum

KPMG Canada, a member firm of “Big Four” accounting giant KPMG, has added Bitcoin and Ethereum, the two largest cryptocurrencies, to its corporate balance sheet, according to a Feb. 7 press release.

It also bought carbon credits in order to fend off concerns about the environmental impact of its investment by helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Benjie Thomas, KPMG Canada’s managing partner for advisory services, described cryptocurrencies as a “maturing asset class” in his statement, pointing to the fact that an increasing number of institutional investors have started participating in the market. The company believes that institutional adoption of cryptocurrencies will continue accelerating:

This investment reflects our belief that institutional adoption of crypto assets and blockchain technology will continue to grow and become a regular part of the asset mix.

KPMG reported global revenues of a staggering $32.13 billion in 2021.
