Please note: this event has passed

Ever since Satoshi Nakamoto’s 2008 white paper “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” digital assets and the technology which supports them have been the subject of excitement, speculation and derision. Fortunes and reputations have been made and lost and (crypto) winters have come, gone and returned.


This session will provide some insight into the elements of the digital assets world: the way in which they are characterised, including from a regulatory and legal perspective and why that may matter; themes common to traditional finance that will have to be addressed; and likely future applications.


Speaker: David Kemp joined GAM in October 2018 as Group Head of Compliance. Prior to GAM, he was General Counsel, Asset & Wealth Management at Schroders from 2012 having previously held a number of senior front office positions in investment banks. He began his career as a solicitor with a leading City law firm. David holds the CPE and LPC from the College of Law, Guildford, a master's degree in Business Finance from Brunel University and a BA (Hons) in Philosophy from King's College, University of London. He holds the FT Non-Executive Director Diploma.

NB. This event has been re-scheduled from its original date of 21 February.
