Digital Assets and Capital Allocation
This is an emerging area that we wrote about in our report published in May
We explored the emergence of digital assets and implications for investment returns and capital allocation including Bitcoin & Ethereum IRAs
Baby Boomers represent the largest pool of capital in global markets and its impact should not be underestimated
Data Assets & ICOs
Our next report will assess the impact of new data on data strategies of the buy side and sell side.
From there we will assess the implications of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) on capital raising, venture investing, and the future of investment.
The level of change occurring from a data, regulation, and innovation perspective impacting buy and sell side business models is building all the time.
Those financial institutions that think MiFID II is about compliance are missing a huge amount of innovation and competition coming their way where only those with agile data asset strategies will compete.
