The digital asset hedge fund industry has experienced significant growth in the past few years as more dedicated firms have entered the space and more traditional managers have begun to incorporate digital asset strategies into their investment processes.

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

1100 - 1145: Session 3: Panel: Best Practice In Digital Assets Custody
Private keys represent a potentially fatal single point of failure in the safekeeping of crypto assets. This panel explains best practice around digital assets custody and what questions investors should be asking of their managers with regards to their custody protocols.
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.
