NZZ SIFF Breakout Session
Will Tokenization Revolutionize Asset Management?

 

Tokenization will change the way we invest into assets and open a new world for asset managers by giving access to new asset classes such as tokenized art, real estate or company ownership. According to the World Economic  Forum Survey 10% of global GDP may be stored with blockchain technology by 2027. Hence, asset tokenisation is one of the biggest trends in the financial sector: new digital exchanges are emerging and regulatory compliant offerings are being developed.

At the breakout session, experts from various backgrounds discussed challenges and opportunities of tokenization and provided intriguing insights from academia. In addition, current application examples for asset management were presented and progress on building a fully integrated market infrastructure for digital assets.
