Interviewed by Greg Winterton, Founder, Managing Editor, AlphaWeek

0945 - 1030: Session 2: Panel: Digital Assets’ Place In A Diversified Portfolio

The cryptocurrency market is too volatile to be a portfolio’s primary exposure. Or is it? This panel explains the best fit for professional investors and what is reasonable to expect – and what isn’t - from a digital assets allocation.

1100 - 1145: Session 3: Panel: Best Practices and Current Developments in Digital Asset Custody and Infrastructure

The middle and back office of the digital asset industry gets almost as much attention as the front office; media coverage of cold storage and exchange risk raises red flags, whilst the relentless pace of development and maturation of the industry provides the bull case. This panel discusses the current state of the middle and back office infrastructure of the digital asset hedge fund market and what market participants should be excited about in the coming 12-24 months.

1145 - 1230:  Session 4: Panel: Discretionary vs Quant

Large amounts of data exists in the public equity space with regards to whether discretionary or systematic strategies are better. But cryptoassets have a much shorter history from which to draw conclusions. This panel explains the current thinking here and how investors should view each approach.
