Capitalising on crypto: growth strategies for banks
ABOUT THE EVENT
ABOUT THE EVENT
Cryptocurrency has overhauled our traditional conception of assets; the idea that all portfolio constituents must be physical has been rendered obsolete, and foretellings of the metaverse stand to stir up the financial sector. Banks are beginning to react to developments within the digital asset economy; treasury innovations are being scaled up, whilst incumbent institutions pilot custody capabilities and venture into the digital asset trading space.
As the nascent market matures, the responsibility falls on banks to establish operational best practice. However, sky-rocketing inflation and the so-called Crypto Winter threaten to curb banking breakthroughs; investor risk tolerance is plummeting, and downturns point to problems inherent in digital assets. Regulation, or lack thereof, poses further roadblocks; banks are concerned by financial crime and cyber risk, whilst energy-heavy cryptographic mining dissuades ESG-conscious clients.
Confronted by market volatility and disruption from challenger banks, traditional players must reconsider their crypto strategies. How do incumbent institutions plan to remain competitive when faced with agile adversaries? To what extent are acquisitions and joint ventures the answer, or will banks focus on boosting internal talent and crypto capabilities?
Hosted by The Banker in partnership with BCB Group, this 50-minute webinar will bring together leading banking executives investing in a growth-oriented crypto strategy. Chaired by Joy Macknight, Editor of The Banker, our panel of experts will spotlight opportunities for product innovation and mutually beneficial collaboration, whilst forecasting stark headwinds facing strategists this year and next.
