Family Office Digital Assets Exchange 2021 - Carving out a role for crypto returns

With flexible mandates and a patient approach to capital, family offices are increasingly focused on the value-add that digital assets can offer.

As a store of wealth, an effective diversifier and a potential source of alpha, cryptocurrencies and similar instruments are gaining traction. In today’s landscape, in particular, these assets can mitigate risks from higher inflation, prolonged low rates and other macro dynamics.

To capture such benefits, it is essential for family offices to understand key crypto trends and opportunities, adopt robust investment processes and prepare for likely volatility and other challenges that arise with new asset classes.

This event therefore combines practical and insightful conversations, presentations and a panel – to assess the current landscape for digital assets and potential strategies and tactical opportunities.
