The Investment Association and the Engine invites you as we explore the Uberisation of Investment management as traditional value chains and infrastructure are deconstructed to reduce complexity, risk and cost.

DLT / blockchain has the ability to improve data and identity security, enhance operational efficiency and streamline regulatory compliance and reporting functions. The theory is sound but any threat to the norm attracts scrutiny and to succeed it must harness a collective desire for change; but what are the real pinch points today, where should we plan for tomorrow and what is everyone else doing?

This Tech Talk offers insights from leading member experts to help our sector not only succeed today but prepare for the future.
