Future of Cryptocurrency & Fintech in Asset Management
The cryptocurrency turbulence and volatility in 2022, together with the failure of FTX, one of the largest crypto exchanges, have raised questions among the industry regarding the claim that cryptocurrency can revolutionize finance. Is cryptocurrency just a short-term speculation tool or it will evolve into a more valuable asset in the long-term? What is the future of cryptocurrency and its potential development in the asset management space? While 2022 is a "crypto year", 2023 seems to mark the start of an "AI era". How is technology going to transform the traditional financial system and investment tools? This presentation will cover these topics and AYASA Globo will also share how they are tapping into these crypto and fintech trends to provide a better customer experience to fund managers in Hong Kong & Singapore.
