Our C.E.O. shares his thoughts on equity market volatility in a recent Linkedin article.

We cover the question of risk, consider appropriate products to reflect that risk and how the markets are currently pricing volatility. A lot of investors have been waiting for a sudden re-basing of volatility it is our expectation that we will experience a more gradual re-basing to a higher level, no doubt with some “fear of event” moves in the near term driven by Asian regional geo-policitics.

Blockchain Technology

Over the past couple years we’ve all heard about Blockchain, like most people I immediately think of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

This article, from the team at Harvard Business Review, discusses the platform in depth, how it should be considered a Foundational Technology and could be deployed across different spheres of business to re-shape and help drive the broader economy.
