Debating digital assets! FinanceFeeds South Africa IB seminar looks at how to avoid fraud or conflict of interest

On June 28, FinanceFeeds, along with Spectre’s Athol Nourse, hosted a seminar with a series of long established partners and asset managers on how to remove the pitfalls and conflicts when working with new types of instruments.

On June 28, 2018, FinanceFeeds produced and hosted a day of discussion, along with some of Johannesburg’s most senior introducing brokers, looking at how to remove conflicts of interest between client, introducing partner, and the brokerage platform which provides the service.

At the exclusive Bryanston Country Club in Johannesburg, one of the most important and prosperous global centers for introducing brokers in alternative asset classes, we brought together the leaders of the continent’s alternative asset management sector.

In conjunction with Spectre.ai which is the first decentralized trading platform in which client assets are not deposited or held with a brokerage, many previously taboo subjects were brought into debate, and important business relationships formed. For more details, check out the video below.
