MMI NetMeeting - The Potential of Blockchain for the Wealth and Asset Management Industry

June 14, 2018 | NetMeeting

In this NetMeeting replay, Eamonn Maguire, Global Lead in Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies for KPMG US, gives a primer on the key features of Blockchain technology and a case study of how Blockchain could help create value for the funds industry through cost savings and efficiencies in terms of speed and simplicity.

Current wealth and asset management industry models leave asset managers at a significant disadvantage because there is no infrastructure to support selling funds directly to the investor. Enter Blockchain - which offers a permanent record of transactions in a network, making it possible to create a digital ledger of records and share it among a network of independent parties without the need of a middleman. The industry is today seeking a Blockchain-based funds distribution platform that can significantly lower distribution costs and provide asset managers with transparency on final investors. Eamonn explores the use of Blockchain technology to increase efficiency in the funds industry and solves business problems associated with data privacy, security, information, and inclusion.
