About this talk

Panacea is running a series of masterclasses to provide clarity on the complex world of cryptocurrency. The issues: In June 2021, the FCA extended the temporary registrations regime for existing crypto asset businesses from 9 July 2021 to 31 March 2022. Additionally, a recent Opinium poll showed that more than 90% of UK independent financial advisers would never recommend cryptocurrencies or meme stocks to their clients. The Solution: This series of webinars will enable you to: - understand more about cryptocurrency - competently answer questions raised by clients - decide whether to embrace it as another asset class for your advised clients Bridget Greenwood from The Bigger Pie will facilitate the sessions and be joined by several experts in the field to educate you further. Synopsis: - What is DeFi and how can you access it? - Overview of type of DeFi products and protocols - What are the challenges and risks DeFi face? - What are the opportunities? - What is needed to get institutions interested in DeFi? Speaker: Dr Amber Ghaddar is one of the founders of AllianceBlock, the blockchain startup building the framework for the world’s first globally compliant capital market by bridging CeFi and DeFi. Amber started her career in Global Investment Research at Goldman Sachs London, and moved from there to the Cross Asset Solutions team at JP Morgan London in 2012, where she built the JP Morgan UK Multi Asset franchise. Later, she spearheaded the Macro Systematic Trading Strategies team at JP Morgan London.
