Crypto, Blockchain, Why it Matters, and Things to Know as a Financial Professional

Are more and more of your clients asking about bitcoin? What things should you as an insurance professional know about cryptocurrency? Does it matter?


This presentation aims to provide the insurance advisor with a guide to crypto and blockchain: what they are, what they are not, and where they might go from here. We want you to walk away confident in your understanding and armed with information to decide how to best position yourself for what lies ahead.


This program will cover:  

  • Introduction to blockchain, bitcoin, altcoins and ethereum-based tokens
  • Mining: what, how, why
  • Understanding where blockchain may fit in
  • Investing in crypto or blockchain
  • Should crypto be in clients’ portfolios?
