Event Description:

 

The last 18 months has seen the meteoric rise and fall of cryptocurrency. At the same time there has been increasing interest in “Security Tokens”. In Asia, we are seeing the rise of a new class of younger affluent investors who value customization, flexibility and cost efficiency in wealth management. Blockchain can shape the future of wealth management by allowing superior access and liquidity through the concept of security tokens, which are backed by real assets. Security tokens have to be compliant with existing securities regulations, and allow the ability to create digital certificates of ownership in LP interests. This opens up a highly illiquid $15 trillion private equity / venture capital market to mass affluent investors, who can access top tier managers with lower investment minimums and trade these interests through a licensed secondary platform.
