PREPARING FOR THE TOKENIZED FUTURE OF ASSETS IN LONDON 
After a successful staging in the capital in June, this one-day conference roadshow provides further comprehensive insights on the entire process of tokenizing a real-world asset. Tokenizing assets means lowering costs for issuers, but also improving transparency, efficiency and liquidity of real-world assets. The tokenization of real assets democratizes access to new investment opportunities and allows for fractional liquidation and ease of exchange with other investors.

Please see here the overview of the speakers who contributed to our successful Tokenized Assets events in May and June 2019. 

MASTERCLASS TOKENIZING REAL ESTATE ASSETS
Please also check out the deep dive Masterclass Tokenizing Real Estate Assets at Bartlett Real Estate Institute on Tuesday November 5.
