The rise and rise of social investing: You are what you digitally invest in

Wed 06 Jul 2022 / 12:30 (BST), 13:30 (CEST)

About the event

Investors of today are changing their tactics, their strategies and their values. In the current turbulent market and with digital assets moving towards the mainstream, can and should crypto investors still consider influences from their friends and word of mouth retail investors? This Sifted Talks will explore the rise of crypto in social investing, discussing who is set to be influenced by the wave of digital assets and what wider impact they will make in doing so.

We'll be discussing

  1. With its positive overall trajectory and often quick returns, can the crypto market really align with investors' ESG goals?
  2. Is it humans vs technology? Where do traditional wealth managers and financial advisors fit within the new landscape? What social responsibilities do wealthtechs have when allocating to crypto assets?
  3. Can crypto really go green?
  4. What obligations should people promoting defi currencies be held to?
