Simon Bound Morgan Stanley Global Director of Research
**Rescheduled from Wednesday November 13th to Wednesday, April 1, 2020**
The future of money poses many questions. What are crypto currencies and how might they impact the current payments system? What will this mean for central banks? How does crypto relate to the ongoing electronification of payments? What are the lessons to be learned from China, the current leader in electronic payments? Should you invest in crypto, or is it too speculative? What does the continued rapid growth of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and fund flows into alternative assets – including hedge funds, private equity, real estate, private debt and quantitative products — mean to your portfolio? What are the risks to investors and liquidity risks to the market? Are robo advisors and artificial intelligence going to change the way you invest? Simon Bound, managing director at Morgan Stanley, will address these questions in his presentation on the future of money and money management, and will give an overview of Morgan Stanley’s economic and strategy outlook for 2020.
