Private Funds Nuts & Bolts: Digital Asset Funds – Challenges and Opportunities

July 10, 2019

This webinar covered the following:

Facebook’s well-reported announcement this month of their impending entry into cryptocurrencies and digital assets re-affirms that the blockchain technology underpinning bitcoin and ethereum and other decentralized and distributed networks will continue to disrupt not just payments, but also finance and investing. Fortunately, the SEC has made steady progress toward regulatory clarity, providing more certainty to fund managers and investment advisers who want to include digital assets in their portfolios.

Timothy Spangler, a partner in Dechert’s Orange County and Silicon Valley offices who focuses on the intersection of blockchain and financial regulation, will discuss the key issues to bear in mind when looking at new investment strategies and financial products that make use of distributed ledger technology. Particular attention will be spent on the growing range of traditional securities that are migrating “on chain,” and how this will impact investment management more broadly in the near term.
