The conference supports financial institutions to make informed business decisions around blockchain and explore the non-technical challenges impeding wider adoption of the technology.

The panel session will focus on security token offerings (STOs) and explore how they can revolutionise financial institutions, the existing regulatory challenges that need to be overcome before wider adoption is possible and the future infrastructure required to prepare for this change.

Fiona Chan is a member of Appleby’s Global Technology & Innovation Group, a multi-disciplinary group which comprises experts from each of our 10 offices and supports clients across a broad range of emerging technologies. Fiona has almost 20 years of offshore and onshore experience in the Asian market and advises on transactions relating to the laws of Bermuda, BVI and Cayman Islands from our Hong Kong office.

Fiona commented: “I am looking forward to speaking at the upcoming Blockchain for Finance conference. The panel discussion with DBS, Singapore Exchange and ConsenSys will provide a great opportunity for financial institutions to consider the legal and regulatory challenges facing this latest trend in digital assets. With technological innovation transforming businesses, markets and our everyday life, it is important for financial institutions to remain at the forefront of changes in this fast moving sector.”
