Digitising Financial Services: Blockchain – recalibrating the market infrastructure

In this, the third in our series of Going Digital briefings, we will look at the transformative potential of blockchain on the market infrastructure and the impact that may have on the wider financial services industry.  

The session will be led by Stuart Davis, a managing associate in the Financial Regulation Group. Stuart will set the scene by explaining what blockchain is and some of the more interesting use-cases in the financial services industry. He will explore how blockchain may catalyse the digitisation of the financial services sector and the opportunities and risks that presents. Finally Stuart will discuss some of the legal and regulatory barriers to its widespread adoption.

Stuart will be joined by Julian Cunningham-Day, a partner from our TMT team, who will consider how these digital innovations will drive changes in the risks facing legal and compliance teams and provide suggestions for managing them, including contract and project management and policy development.
