Virginia Pension Invests Funds in Crypto Lend to Uplift the Returns
  • In early May Virginia got approval to invest pension funds in yield farming.
  • Molnar stated that they use high yield replacements to expect higher returns.

Most businesses and industries have experienced a crisis, suffered significant losses, and lost the majority of their retail customers. In order to boost profits, Virginia pension funds spent $6.8 billion in the crypto lending industry.

Strategy in Investing Yield Farming 

In early May Virginia got approval to invest in the crypto lending form the Yield farming  which allows users to lend out their digital tokens to their crypto projects and pay back with fixed stream of payments.

Katherine Molnar, chief investment officer of the Fairfax County Police Officers Retirement System, said in an interview.

“Some of the yields that you’re able to achieve in a yield farming strategy are really attractive because some of the people have stepped back from that space.”

She added that they invest in yield farming to supplement fixed income or to get larger returns than rate-sensitive assets. And they are using it as a high-yield replacement; the expected returns were stated to be closer to nine to eleven percent in one case and possibly a bit higher in the case of the other manager.

She also stated how several recent crypto market crashes resulted in numerous crypto enterprises filing for bankruptcy and suffering enormous losses. The yields available from yield-farming ventures are much higher than those obtainable on credit markets, yet they lack many of the investor protections provided in conventional banking.

For those who are still prepared to offer money, decent profit seekers, the present yields are actually more attractive.
