About Event

In recent years, the alternative investment market, encompassing private equity, private credit, real estate, and infrastructure, has witnessed remarkable growth. As alternative investments can offer higher returns and portfolio diversification benefits, institutional investors have allocated a significant portion of their assets to alternative investments. However, despite growing demand among individual investors, broader adoption has been hindered by various challenges. One significant hurdle has been the lack of investor and advisor education, coupled with limited access and liquidity of underlying assets. The private nature of alternative investments has historically made them less standardized and transparent from a reporting perspective, resulting in operational complexities when trading and administering these assets. Blockchain technology, tokenization, and smart contracts offer a promising solution. By tokenizing funds and representing portfolios as smart contracts, firms can overcome barriers and create innovative solutions. This approach enables automated portfolio management, even for alternative investments, revolutionizing the investment landscape.

Join our insightful discussion on the Tokenization of Investment Funds, elaborating on the following questions:

  • Which challenges and opportunities exist in the alternative investment landscape?

  • How can the Tokenization of investment funds solve these challenges?

  • What are the challenges when tokenizing investment funds?

  • Which examples of successful tokenized investment funds already exist and do they increase the accessibility for individual investors?

  • What should individual investors know before investing in tokenized funds?
