Wealthy Crypto Investors Are Driving Luxury Sales in the U.S., Analyst Says

Demand for luxury goods is rising in the U.S. and cryptocurrency wealth is believed to be behind a chunk of it, according to an analyst at Jefferies.

After a recent trip to New York and Florida, Jefferies analyst Flavio Cereda says the U.S. consumer “continues to surprise,” scooping up a range of high-priced items such as handbags, jewelry and designer clothes.

U.S. buyers of luxury items today are younger and more affluent than in the past, Cereda wrote, according to a report from Bloomberg

Cereda estimates that local “super spenders” account for $20 billion of the total spend, the report states, which is more than double that from Europe but well below China.
