Topic:

Spotlight on digital assets: Debating the operational challenges of managing a crypto fund

Discussion points include:

-What are the key operational issues managers are having to address when looking to launch a digital asset fund?
-Which admins, auditors and other vendors are operating in this space, and are the custody and other solutions on offer adequate?
-The SFC and People’s Bank of China have both issued warnings over the dangers presented by ICOs – where are global regulators today and where they are likely to get to in due course?
-Security and custody are critical areas of concern and importance in cryptocurrency investment. How can these issues be addressed and is there a developing standard ?
-What concerns and challenges are investors voicing when approaching this new subset of funds?
