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?
