Webinar
The future of digital assets
20 September 2021 | 4:00 - 5:30 PM HKT
Exclusive Sponsor

Digital assets are taking the world by storm and, in the process, transforming the global financial and investment landscape. Asia-Pacific, with its fintech strength, supportive regulatory policies and deep pockets of liquidity, is well positioned to become a global leader in this space. Already, the region is home to the biggest base of crypto-investors in the world. Institutional investors, acknowledging that digital assets will soon become mainstream, are now moving into this space.

As institutional capital starts pouring in, the digital asset market is primed to expand exponentially and with it, new investment and security risks will emerge. The entry of traditional banks into this space, along with the emergence of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), however, provide a much-needed boost to the credibility of this new asset class. As well, moving forward, custodians will play an important role in sustaining the growth of the market. As investors demand for digital assets grow, the need for a trusted trading platform and institutional grade custody becomes imperative.

The Asset Events+, in association with DBS, is pleased to host this exclusive webinar to discuss how digital assets are transforming the financial and investment landscape.
