Crypto Investor Forum

27th February 2019

Crypto for the Mainstream –Understanding the opportunities and risks for investors and companies raising capital 


AltFi and Maitland are delighted to announce our first joint Crypto investors forum. This is a half day event in Kings Cross designed to decode the world of crypto for mainstream investors and explore how it will transform capital markets
Our market leading speakers will attempt to answer all the key questions most investors ask, ranging from how to access this nascent ‘asset class’, to exploring how tokenisation will transform capital markets, through to real-life applications of blockchain..  Our emphasis throughout the event will be on the proper debate – underscoring both the risks and opportunities – and explaining how investors can access this confusing space through structures that are familiar and offer real protections.
Our moderator on the day will be FT, Money Week and Citywire columnist David Stevenson, who is also the founder of alternative finance news website AltFi.com.
