DLT & Digital Assets: steps towards integration in financial institutions

Price: 4999,00 EUR

In-depth knowledge about integrating DLT & digital assets into the organizational and operational structure of a financial institution

Our consulting experience shows that, depending on the target picture envisaged, almost all areas of a financial institution – be it front, middle or back office – are facing new tasks. So it is all the more important to build up in-depth knowledge of the additional efforts and (regulatory) requirements in order to be able to benefit from more efficient and automated processes as well as a compelling service offering. This certificate is meant to enable participants to transform operational processes (cost-)efficiently in the medium to long term.

The establishment of DLT-based business models and service offerings that provide for product development, sales and settlement of digital assets has various implications for the organizational and operational structure of financial institutions. In addition to new business processes that must comply with regulatory requirements, new organizational units or roles are frequently also required to take care of the implementation of these processes. Moreover, existing operational processes are expanded to include new technology or financial instruments.

Learning objectives

Specifically, the “DLT & Digital Assets Professional Level” certificate enables participants to understand the aspects presented in the sub-seminars listed below and to apply them in the daily operations of a financial institution. Participants gain fundamental knowledge of DLT / digital assets at the interface to financial services.

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with experts from the DLT / digital assets industry during their presentations and discussions of case studies.

Target group

The program is intended for specialists and executives from the financial services industry, both in institutional and retail banking, in asset management and risk management, primarily from credit institutions and investment undertakings, who want to drive sustainable change in their companies.
