Webinar On Digital Assets And International Financial Centres

The webinar examines where digital assets and IFCs intersect, and the ways in which financial jurisdictions should think about this growing area.

WealthBriefing recently hosted a webinar, run in conjunction with Jersey Finance, which examines how international financial centres (IFCs) are grappling with the challenges of digital assets – a term covering entities from cryptocurrencies through to tokens, smart contracts and distributed ledger technology such as blockchain. 

The webinar nails down definitions; examines why today’s ultra-high net worth individuals should be interested in the sector – understanding that the sector is not as new as might appear; the importance of IFCs’ reputations; and what sort of technology, legal and administrative ecosystem works best for digital assets.

Panellists at the webinar were Heather-Anne Hubbell, CEO Phundex Limited; Naomi Rive, owner manager, group director at HIGHVERN; and James Brockhurst, private wealth lawyer and partner, Forsters. The webinar was moderated by Stephen Harris, chief executive, WealthBriefing.

The webinar also looks at whether the drive for sustainability and energy efficiency sits well, or not, with the digital assets story.
