Review of SSPA Christmas InfoTalk and Get Together
The structured products sector ended the year in a customary convivial atmosphere at the last 2018 InfoTalk in Zurich – food for thought on blockchain technology in banking, combined with culinary delights of a more prosaic nature! For «we stand on the brink of a technological revolution» predicted keynote speaker Simon Tobler, Member of the Board of Management and Head of Trading at Crypto Broker AG. Bitcoin along with new technologies play a pioneering role here, and are also attractive on account of the low correlation with other investment classes. This was underscored by the expanding offers of institutional operators, such as for example Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity and many others. Bitcoin is no longer in its infancy, and is securing a place for itself on the worldwide investment floor – including in Switzerland.
SSPA Chairman Georg von Wattenwyl then addressed the continued growth in the number of members recorded in 2018, as well as the goals for 2019, such as for example further measures in the field of cost transparency or involvement in the field of wealth management, before the approximately 40-strong audience relocated to the Almodo Bar for Christmas drinks.
