About the event
Interest in decentralised finance (DeFi), particularly in the form of cryptocurrencies, has surged in the last two years, as near-zero interest rates and rising inflation have encouraged people to hunt for higher-yielding investment opportunities outside the traditional system. Thus far, most of the players deep into DeFi are individual - or retail - investors and crypto specialists. However, financial institutions and institutional investors are now increasingly looking to enter this space, as the regulators begin to thaw.
DeFi has the potential to replace financial institutions in their current roles as providers of trust between counterparties and liquidity providers. It holds the promise of a more efficient and faster financial system, without intermediaries, paperwork and banks. Could we possibly be on the verge of seeing DeFi adoption enter the mainstream? Could we eventually see it replace Wall Street and the City of London? What are the unique opportunities it brings for institutions and what are the practicalities of investing in this space?
Join us for this fifty-minute webinar as our panel of expert commentators from across the banking, crypto, digital asset and DeFi sectors discuss the rise of decentralised finance, the opportunities which it presents for institutions and why banks should be taking notice. Learn how decentralised finance differs from traditional finance and banking, what unique investment opportunities it provides and the practicalities of investing in this growing space.
