Taking A Tour Around Digital Assets - Two Webinars

This news service hosted two separate webinars, in association with Nickel Digital Asset Management, exploring the themes around bitcoin and the fast-expanding world of digital assets. With bitcoin prices surging in recent weeks, the topic is hot, and drawing increasing interest from the mainstream financial sector.

The fast-expanding world of digital assets, such as bitcoin, and how they should fit into portfolios was discussed in two recent webinars involving this publication in association with Nickel Digital Asset Management.

Both panels – one pitched at the Asia market, and the other at Europe – featured Anatoly Crachilov, founding partner and CEO, at Nickel Digital Asset Management. (Crachilov has also recently spoken to this news service in an interview on his investment views – see here). In the Asia panel, other speakers were Anndy Lian, inter-governmental blockchain advisor, and Evrard Bordier, managing partner ant CEO at Bordier & Cie. The European recording can be viewed here and the Asia recording here.

On the European panel – moderated by this news service’s group editor, Tom Burroughes – he and Crachilov were joined by Benedikt Kukacka, digital assets, at Julius Baer

Both webinars addressed the question of why and how bitcoin has arisen, the best way of defining it, and what part it plays in the portfolios of high net worth clients. The panellists also discussed why digital assets are now becoming more mainstream, and what the future may hold. 

Both webinars last an hour and, as readers can see, there is so much more left to discuss. Consequently, this publication's editorial team intends to continue tracking this sector from a wealth management viewpoint. 

The editors are keen to hear from the wealth sector about its views, so do please contact if you have follow-up comments.
