09:00 Tokenisation: The advent of a new investment model

Asset management has long been touted as an industry ripe for innovation. The tokenisation of collective investments appears to be a natural evolution to the traditional mutual fund model and would seemingly provide benefits to both fund managers and investors alike in the form of a fully digital, transparent and cost-effective product.

– How will tokenisation unlock new investment opportunities in the funds industry?
– Why is it important to asset managers?
– What does it mean for end investors, and participants in the supply chain?

Head of Global Markets, Calastone

With digital transformation now firmly at the top of every fund firms’ strategic agenda, we explore how this is being used to meet changing investor demands and the technology innovations being deployed today / in the near future.

– What have been the drivers of change in the managed funds industry over the last ten years?
– How has technology changed the way the managed funds industry works?
– What are investors looking for before they invest? What do we need to attract tomorrow’s investors?
