Bitcoin for Advisors

October 6, 2021

The goal of Bitcoin for Advisors is to equip investment advisors with tools to better understand bitcoin, talk to their clients about bitcoin, and work bitcoin into their business. We’re working closely with professional advisors to build out a program that is timely, valuable, and actionable for the financial advisor community, and presented in a manner that is targeted and relevant to their interests. Through a series of keynotes, panels, and interactive roundtable sessions, we will discuss investment theses for bitcoin, why younger demographics are turning to this asset, and how it fits into the current global macroeconomic picture. We will also walk through the practicalities: how to answer client questions about bitcoin, how to talk to your compliance department about bitcoin, how can bitcoin help grow your book. Advisors will walk away from this virtual event with a grasp of how bitcoin fits into the world and their business.
