Event Registration - Banking Reimagined: The Future of Digital Banking and Asset Custody

Banking Reimagined: The Future of Digital Banking and Asset Custody

Digital assets such as cryptocurrencies have opened a whole new realm in the financial services industry, with financial intermediaries seeking ways to engage with investors holdings those assets.  In addition, fintech-derived solutions have helped reimagine the relationship between financial services firms and tech-savvy consumers. 

While firms continue to try adapting to a more digitally-oriented marketplace, newer players are looking to disrupt the status quo in market structure, addressing both the inefficiencies of the settlement system and payment transfers, as well as the custody conundrum of exactly “who owns what.”  The center of that disruption is the blockchain, the decentralized database technology that has powered the roughly $1 trillion cryptocurrency market.   

Join us on October 27th for a discussion on the future of banking and asset custody with Caitlin Long, founder and CEO of Wyoming-based Custodia Bank and a leading expert on blockchain technology and financial market structure.  In this discussion we will cover topics such as the rising importance of digitally-based “neobanks,” an adapting regulatory environment, Caitlin’s own first-hand experience with building Custodia from the ground up, and implications for investment professionals whose firms are exposed to significant disruption.   

Don’t miss out on what is sure to be a lively and insightful discussion—register today!
