A webinar link will be emailed to attendees a few days before the event.

This is a free event for CFAW members.  

Event Description: 

Although the blockchain is most commonly known as being the technology behind Bitcoin, blockchain’s reach and scope has much broader applications beyond just cryptocurrencies and speculative manias. 

Distributed ledger and blockchain based projects are quickly establishing themselves as preeminent forces in information technology. The ascent of the blockchain has the potential to be one of the most disruptive global technology trends since the proliferation of the internet. Blockchain adoption can drastically affect transaction processing dynamics, all forms of record keeping, supply chain management, capital raising, and securities trade settlement. These ramifications will have pronounced impacts on all industries with a particular emphasis on financial services.

What this Webinar Will Cover:

This 45 minute live webinar presented by Cognitir, and in partnership with the CFA Society of Washington DC, will touch on some of blockchain’s potentially most disruptive impact on the world of finance, including the financing of projects and businesses through blockchain based infrastructure, as well as highlight some of the key initiatives by leading financial institutions to digitize securities settlement and international trade. 

The webinar will serve as an introduction to some of these major use cases and address how attendees can learn the fundamentals of the inner-workings of blockchain technology in the future.

Who Should Attend? 

For all financial services and business professionals that would like to get a feel for the biggest blockchain trends impacting the industry, as well as set them up to be prepared to learn more about this technology’s potential to rapidly digitize and streamline traditional processes.
