Active Portfolio Manager, Bitwise Asset Management
The question isn’t whether your clients should or shouldn’t invest in crypto and digital assets – the reality is that they are already invested and will continue to invest in this space. While one of the biggest and most well-known risks associated with these alternatives is the price volatility, there are several others that advisors need to be aware of and prepared to address as the ways in which digital assets are being created, held, and used are constantly changing. From the security/custody risk associated with how crypto is held to the liquidity and counterparty risk that is present on many popular exchanges and lending platforms - this expert panel of thought leaders is prepared to go beyond the basics to address these important topics and more.
This session would focus on risk management regarding crypto specific factors such as smart contract risk, market risk, operational risk, and custody risk. Given the rising interconnectedness of traditional and decentralized blockchain infrastructures, the session would also focus on how to evaluate the investing opportunities made possible across
the digital assets ecosystem.
