We’re working closely with professional advisers to build out a program that is timely, valuable and actionable for the financial advisor community, and presented in a manner that is targeted and relevant to their interests.Through a series of keynotes, panels and interactive roundtable sessions, we will discuss investment theses for bitcoin, why younger demographics are turning to this asset and how it fits into the current global macroeconomic picture. We will also walk through the practicalities: how to answer client questions about bitcoin, how to talk to your compliance department about bitcoin and how bitcoin can help grow your book. Advisers will walk away from this virtual event with a grasp of how bitcoin fits into the world and their business.
