London – 17th September 2020

The Wealth Mosaic is excited to announce the release of its latest WealthTech Views Report: How Distributed Ledger Technology & Blockchain are shaping the future of wealth & asset management. The report was created in partnership with Dr Efi Pylarinou, the Fintech global influencer and thought leader, and includes views from 2 thought leaders and 10 solution providers from across the globe; Ark Invest, the Multichain Asset Managers Association (‘MAMA’), area2invest, Chainalysis, Consensys, CrescoFin, DSENT, FiCAS, FundsDLT, Lykke, SEBA Bank, and Securrency.

The report was created because the wealth and asset management sector continues to face challenges due to the unstoppable digitalization that is threatening traditional business models in finance. All the 4th Industrial Revolution (‘4IR’) technologies (e.g. Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Big Data analytics, APIs and Blockchain) are threats but also present opportunities to wealth and asset managers and are being integrated, adopted, or piloted. The genuinely disruptive one, however, is clearly Blockchain, as it has the potential to fundamentally change wealth and asset management, both by replacing the infrastructure in the management of existing asset classes and as the backbone for new alternative assets.

As this is our first report on this topic it is by no means covering all the activity in the area as the space is evolving fast, with some subsectors maturing (e.g. custody), and other nascent ones emerging (e.g. DeFi – Decentralized Finance). Given the level of innovation in this area we therefore plan to publish updates and/or sequels to this report on an on-going basis and will make this an annual WealthTech Views report for the sector.

“The Wealth Mosaic is very excited to publish this report in partnership with Dr Efi Pylarinou as DLT and Blockchain has moved from being a fringe technology in wealth and asset management to something that is going to have a significant impact on the sector. As you will read in our inaugural report on this topic, its impact is not just predicated on how cryptocurrencies are becoming more common in investors’ portfolios, but also its application in how assets can be invested in, traded and managed, through innovations such as tokenisation. It is clear we are only at the beginning of this innovation and we will be covering its development each year from now on”, said Simon Ramery, Co-Founder and Director at The Wealth Mosaic

"Building bridges between the old and the new world has always been my focus. This used to involve mainly incumbent financial providers and innovative fintechs. It is clear by now, that Blockchain for finance is part of the new world. I am very excited to publish this report in partnership with the global knowledge hub, The Wealth Mosaic. This is an ecosystem effort to showcase a genuinely transformative trend underway. In this first edition, we cover a variety of cases that show Blockchain`s transformational impact in wealth and asset management." said Dr. Efi Pylarinou, Founder of Efi Pylarinou Advisory.
