Tom Grogan, Co-Lead of the Mishcon de Reya Blockchain Group, has been published in the FT Adviser.
In his piece entitled "Changing finance with blockchain", co-authored alongside Kieran Brown of the Berkeley Research Group, Tom acknowledges the leading role which the financial services industry has played in the development and adoption of blockchain-based solutions.
The article explores a handful of use-cases associated with the financial services industry and features quotes from Sopnendu Mohanty (Chief Fintech Officer at the Monetary Authority of Singapore), Richard Teng (CEO of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority at Abu Dhabi Global Market) and Phil Fortio (CEO and Co-Founder of Tokenblocks, a London-based start-up that has built a platform upon which the investors can communicate directly with asset managers).
"Regulators and other public sector bodies should have a clearly articulated strategy and policy in respect of emerging technologies such as blockchain and should seek to provide unambiguous guidance and direction to market participants in order to create an environment that encourages innovation and investment."
