UPCOMING WEBINARS 

 

Cryptocurrencies and Digital Assets - Market Structure, Risks, and Opportunities

Date: November 2, 2021
12PM HKT | 9:30 AM IST | 1PM JST | 3PM AEST

In this presentation, Keith Black will discuss the digital asset and cryptocurrency markets and the innovative solution to build a global, decentralized, and secure network that facilitates payments and other transactions. Keith will explore how proof-of-work, such as Bitcoin mining, and proof-of-stake protocols, such as Binance, are used to secure networks and complete transactions. Behind many of these currencies are real businesses, such as projects built on top of Ethereum smart contracts that facilitate borrowing and lending as well as options and futures trading. Stable coins pegged to USD or EUR can earn yields of up to 7% with minimal volatility. Returns and volatility data will be presented, as well as evidence on how digital assets can add return to a diversified portfolio without adding to portfolio volatility. Risks of digital assets will also be discussed, including regulatory risks, technology risk, and valuation risk.

Panelists: Keith Black, PhD, CFA, CAIA, FDP, Managing Director, Program Director, FDP Institute; Jo Murphy, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Industry Relations, CAIA Association
