Event Overview

From custody through asset provenance to even records for due diligence, the upheaval in asset management is fascinating. Will the existing asset management structures survive or will fund units be entirely tokenised?

BlockFinance: A FinanceMalta Series is organised in collaboration with the Malta Blockchain Association. The event is an informal breakfast briefing where participation by delegates is encouraged. The briefings run under the Chatham House Rule to encourage dialogue by all professions about issues arising from any aspect of DLT.

Conference chaired and moderated by Patrick L Young, Blockchain Malta Association
