Hubbis is delighted to announce we will be hosting the inaugural HUBBIS DIGITAL ASSETS IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT FORUM on Wednesday 30th November at the Andaz Hotel in Singapore.

The event will feature our half-day-plus format to deliver the most efficient and engaging discussions and networking, beginning at 9.00am and ending at 2.00pm.  

Very simply, the event will focus on the evolution of Digital Assets and the associated infrastructure with reference to their relevance to Asia’s wealth management community.  

Setting the Scene for the Day

There are still plenty of sceptics amongst the private banks and Independent Wealth Managers (EAMs and MFOs), but for what is perhaps the majority today, digital assets are part of our collective futures. These banks and firms increasingly consider that their private clients should not only understand more about digital assets, but they should to some extent at least actively participate by building some exposures in order to understand more about buying, storing, custody, and, of course, the vicissitudes of market pricing and volatility. Why? Because there is more than a sporting chance that the future is populated by more and more digital assets of all types.

DIGITAL ASSETS IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT FORUM 2022

Andaz Hotel,Singapore

Summary

The November 30 event will aim to stimulate both vital information flows and lively debate on the importance of digital assets to the wealth management community in Asia, looking at the evolution of cryptocurrencies and digital assets/tokenisation, and in particular analysing how the wealth management community can help educate themselves, their advisors and their private clients on this evolving market, and then help deliver the right types of products and execution.

The event will focus on exactly what types of conversations the growing band of proponents of digital assets could have with the growing ranks of investors who are interested in such investments, whether dabbling their toes in the water or taking a bigger plunge.

Our expert speakers for the presentations, and our hand-picked specialists on the panel discussions will review how the growing army of specialists can help the wealth industry to enhance their own understanding of such assets and to convey how the digital asset industry is rapidly moving mainstream, with specialist trading, execution and digital asset custody firms rising up.

They will look under the hood of the expanding digital assets ecosystem to consider what makes the different participants valid partners in digital assets for the established private banks and independent wealth management firms. And they will discuss how regulation and licensing are evolving and how that can help the nascent digital assets market grow and mature to the fully professionalised levels they wish to see where digital assets are more genuinely part of the core assets that private clients and their advisors are comfortable with.  

 

These are some of the essential questions that will be covered during the Forum:

  • Why should Asia’s private clients even be considering investing in digital assets?
  • And should Asia’s private banks and EAMs be promoting digital assets to their wealthier clients?
  • What sort of allocations to digital assets should HNW and UHNW investors consider as part of their broader portfolios?
  • How do banks and other intermediaries help educate investors on cryptocurrencies and more broadly on digital assets/tokenisation, and what will this achieve?
  • What assets can be tokenised and fractionalised, and what does this mean to private investors?
  • Aside from cryptos such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, what other forms of digitised assets are already in existence, what is likely to emerge in the foreseeable future, and what relevance do they, or will they have for private investors?
  • How are these developments being empowered by the blockchain and why is the blockchain considered such a core element of the future of financial transactions of all types?
  • How are digital asset brokerages evolving, and are they being properly regulated, are they secure, and are they achieving the growth they expected?
  • For those private clients buying into these assets or thinking of doing so, how should they buy safely and efficiently, and how should they hold/store these invisible assets?
  • What are the investment strategies available to clients looking to access thus space? For example – staking and yield farming.
  • What is next for digitised assets and what does it all means for the wealth management community?
