Part 3 of a 3-part series

Digital assets are making a headway across the world and Asia is poised to lead the next stage of growth. From cryptocurrencies to tokenized securities to non-fungible tokens, capital is pouring in as investors gain better understanding of this new asset class. Also, the region already has numerous crypto funds and digital exchanges.

Across Asia, institutional investors are increasingly allocating to digital assets as they search for better yields. Private banks and wealth managers are also taking greater interest in this space amidst pressure from tech-savvy high net worth clients. The fast-paced development of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) is giving investors more confidence to participate in this market. Moreover, digital bonds are providing issuers with an alternative financing tool.

As digital asset adoption increase, investors face a new set of challenges from counter-party risk to liquidity challenges to regulatory issues. Custodians will play an even bigger role in this space. As the market further expands, the need for institutional-grade digital asset custody becomes more imperative.

The Asset Events+, in association with Deutsche Bank, is pleased to host this exclusive webinar to discuss how digital assets are reshaping Asia’s investment landscape.
