On January 27, Hubbis will present our latest Digital Dialogue event focusing on the rapidly evolving world of digital assets, from cryptocurrencies to digital coins and tokens. Our panel of experts will focus their attention on the evolution of this market segment – which is constantly expanding and with increasing energy – and put into context why Asia’s private clients might be considering investing in these markets, and if so, what they might think about buying, and how. Many investors might have already dabbled babbling their toes in the Bitcoin ocean or maybe taken a bigger plunge across other cryptocurrencies, Decentralised Finance (DeFI), and perhaps even digital other tokens and coins. And it goes without saying that all these elements have of course been turbocharged by investors seeing the incredible performance of Bitcoin in the past year.

And this is a vast market - the total cryptocurrency universe is valued at over USD2 trillion, and total trading activity in 2020 was estimated at more than USD3 trillion. Bitcoin is the bellwether at more than USD900 billion [November 2021], Ethereum is the next biggest at approaching USD400 billion and there are numerous other cryptocurrencies. And that is aside from the growing pool of digital assets, coins and tokens outside the cryptos universe, digital assets representing anything from SMEs to collectable whiskies, classic car collections, art and many more assets besides.

Some banks and wealth management firms remain sceptical, but there are other private banks – and some of these include the oldest brands in the business – and other EAMs that believe that digital assets are part of our collective futures. These banks and firms believe that their private clients should not only understand more about digital assets, but they should 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. The experts on the panel will also aim to report and analyse how the diversification of the digital assets universe is moving in line with the rapid development of the evolution towards a professional, more institutional level market infrastructure and ecosystem.

Join us on January 27 for what will offer fascinating and informative insights on the evolving universe of digital assets.

    Digital Assets and Tokenisation – Guiding Asia’s Private Clients through this Rapidly Expanding World

    • Should Asia’s HNW and UHNW investors be considering digital assets, and why?
    • Are there investment fundamentals that can be analysed and computed in the emerging world of digital tokens?
    • What sustainable options are available in this space?
    • What are the investment strategies available to clients looking to access thus space? For example – staking and yield farming.
    • What sort of allocations to digital assets should HNW and UHNW investors consider as part of their broader portfolios?
    • How do intermediaries and advisors educate investors on cryptocurrencies, what they are, how they work and what relationship do they have to blockchain or other confirmatory protocols?
    • Aside from cryptos such as Bitcoin and Etherum, what other forms of digitised assets are already in existence, and what is likely to emerge in the foreseeable future, and how should investors be educating themselves on those?
    • Non-fungible tokens – what are they, and how do they work?
    • 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 is happening to the digital asset ecosystem (intermediaries, brokerages, custodians etc), and how does that fit with the evolving, albeit differentiated regulation around the world?
    • How are digital asset brokerages evolving, and are they being properly regulated, are they secure, and are they achieving the growth they expected?
    • For the allocation to digital assets, what choices should, or could, investors be sensibly making?
    • What is next for digitised assets?
