FinFair, a crowd-centric conference that aims to bring together Wall Street legends with FinTech innovators, will take place in Manhattan on July 29th. The finance industry is going through a period of dramatic change as technology is altering all aspects of capital formation. FinFair wants to be the forum that bridges the established financial firms with the disruptive future.
“Today, with our nation suffering from a harrowing wealth disparity and facing a looming retirement crisis, I consider FinFair to be the most important conference of my career … together, we work towards diminishing the investment opportunity gap.”
“I firmly believe that many of the concepts and products introduced at this event will ultimately set a new precedent for financial services and cement crowd-centric retail alternatives in Wall Street history.”
Albright understands that modern investors can no longer rely on a traditional asset class to generate consistent gains. With many companies avoiding IPOs as long as possible, most exciting opportunities are only accessible to VCs and PE firms. But technology and new regulations are creating access to these types of investments potentially reducing the growing economic disparity that is endemic in the the US.
Some of the topics addressed at FinFair include; The potential of new Regulation A+, Emerging Venture Markets and Opportunities in P2P / Marketplace Lending.
“There is an incredible amount of financial ingenuity transpiring in the crowd-based retail alternatives space. A plethora of new funds are emerging that possess sophisticated technologies and algorithms to help retail investors maximize P2P returns. For the first time, tools are being developed to help financial advisors and RIAs manage their clients’ P2P portfolios.”
“New technologies are currently being employed to transform the way offering memorandums are structured, and the way in which securities are marketed to retail investors. All of these innovations will have enormous implications on the future of financial services and it’s my true honor to have the opportunity to introduce all of them to financial professionals and investors across the globe,” stated Albright.
