Democratisation of alternative assets through technology, impact investing and retailisation

Session facilitated by CMS Luxembourg

Technology and sustainability goals are currently disrupting the investment funds sector. Laws and regulations are being amended to move towards a more digital and sustainable environment for financial institutions, asset managers and investors. In parallel, we note a high appetite from market players to reach retail investors. What benefits can technology bring? How could it be used to reach retailisation and sustainability goals? What are the opportunities and risks? These are the questions that our panel of experts will try to answer while sharing practical insights and case studies.
