IBM Blockchain Briefing for the Buy Side
11th June, London

Explore the emerging opportunity for Blockchain

Across Financial Services, Asset Managers are becoming increasingly demanding, diverse and knowledgeable - irrespective of their retail or institutional focus. Client Expectations of investment outcomes are sharpening, their tolerance of poor client service is disappearing, and their delivery mechanisms are now expected to increasingly digital. Profit growth is not keeping up with AuM growth. The combination of growth, sharper client expectations and heavy cost pressure provides an enormous opportunity, and an environment for change, for the investment market place.

Join IBM on 11th June to explore perspectives from asset managers, custodian, fintechs and IBM leaders on how to deliver Blockchain technologies (DLT) at the scale and speed necessary to meet today’s demands in Asset Management and prepare for the uncertainties of future regulation and the pressures innovative technology is likely to place on your business. Designed for leaders operating in Asset Management the event briefing will focus on stories and use cases from the field to showcase practical examples of how organisations can exploit DLT.
