How IPMB is accelerating the adoption of tokenization with Global Leaders in the space.

As IPMB strives to pioneer the tokenization of Real World Assets (RWAs) – more specifically, gold – we find it imperative to network with global industry leaders to discuss, encourage and accelerate the adoption of RWAs in the form of digital assets.  We know for certain the value tokenization holds and can bring to traditional finance.  Therefore, we have decided to become a lead sponsor in the Financial Times “The Crypto and Digital Assets Summit”. 

What is the Financial Times Live Crypto & Digital Assets Summit 2024?

The Crypto & Digital Assets Summit 2024 is a leading summit hosted by the Financial Times Live.  The FT Live focuses on bringing industry leaders and governments together to discuss key issues and topics, such as the tokenization of RWAs. 

The Crypto & Digital Assets Summit is designed to connect crypto projects and organisations with traditional finance – Trad-Fi.  Key themes discussed across the two-day summit include tokenization, regulation, risk management and more.

IPMBs Presence

IPMB is a lead sponsor for the Crypto & Digital Assets Summit 2024.  Our team will host a physical booth in the exhibition area and a virtual booth for those attending via a digital-pass.

We’re thrilled to announce that our Chief Product Officer, Marcus Grubb will be a part of the panel ‘Will tokenisation transform private markets?’.

Marcus is a vital part of IPMBs strategy to introduce our dual-token model to the gold industry.  Marcus boasts a plethora of senior roles in traditional finance, working in roles such as;

  • Managing Director Investment & Strategy, the World Gold Council
  • Chief Executive Officer, BlockEx
  • Global Head of Product, State Street

And now IPMB.

Those attending the event are encouraged to watch Marcus’ panel and speak to the team at our booth, where we will be giving away a one-ounce gold coin to attendees on day 1 of the event (May 8th).
