Session Description

Digital Assets (Bitcoin and other ICO’s) are proving to be an attractive and risky investment for clients. This session will pro- vide guidelines and suggestions as to how to mitigate the risk associated with Digital Assets by comparing the current trading, settlement and custody environment to similar environments prior to tradable asset book entry environment. By review- ing, comparing and contrasting risk mitigation measures prior to today’s book entry environment to the current Digital Asset environment, risk mitigation measures can be identi ed and discussed. The session will provide risk managers background on the nature of digital assets and the potential risks (trading, market and operations). We will discuss a risk manager’s role in assessing digital asset risk, how an organization can take steps to identify relevant risks, and how to rank and address these risks in order of signi cance.
