Are today’s ‘empowered investors’ also today’s ‘under-protected investors’?
About the Event
The Financial News Custom Studio team warmly welcomes you to join us at our upcoming breakfast briefing in partnership with Six Swiss Exchange. The past decade has enabled anyone with an internet connection to trade freely and – in some cases – with wild abandon. This so called ‘democratisation of finance’ has been hailed as the next wave for the industry. But the freedom to allocate personal capital without the cost or boundaries that define traditional investment processes can often mask a variety of risks, even if it delivers relatively strong rewards. Leaving aside the struggles that regulators face in defining whether something is an instrument or not; or the kinds of rules they want to put into place around them and the ever growing online communities that operate with no effective borders; the question arises: How can we as an industry win back trust from over-empowered, but relatively under-protected clients and allow them to still harness the power of investing without the pitfalls? The event is free to attend and includes a light networking breakfast, places are limited so please RSVP to confirm your attendance. If you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of staff, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
