Clients of 401(k) provider ForUsAll will be able to invest part of their retirement plans in cryptocurrency as a result of a new partnership with Coinbase.

  • Workers in plans administered by ForUsAll will have the option to invest up to 5% of their contributions in crypto, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. Coinbase, the crypto exchange, will manage trading and custody of the crypto through its institutional unit.
  • ForUsAll administers 401(k) plans for 400 employer clients. It did not say how many have signed up for the option.
  • The San Francisco-headquartered firm was founded in 2012 and holds $1.7 billion in retirement-plan assets.
  • Crypto exposure in retirement plans is not widespread, a situation that may change as further institutional adoption takes hold.
