CoinShares Hosts Second “CoinShares Conversations” Discussion with CEO of ETF Manager, Roundhill Investments

26th June 2020

NEW YORK, New York – JUNE 26, 2020 – The CoinShares Group, a leading financial services firm specializing in digital assets, hosted a discussion with Will Hershey, CEO of Roundhill Investments entitled, “Investing in What You Know and Love through Thematic ETFs.” Roundhill Investments recently launched the BETZ ETF, which provides exposure to sports gambling companies, and was featured in the Wall Street Journal.

During the conversation, CoinShares’ Chief Strategy Officer, Meltem Demirors and Will Hershey discussed:

  • Millennial investors gaining exposure to the industries and companies they know, use, and love through thematic investing
  • Growing generational wealth inequality, and how millennial investors can grow their wealth through investing, particularly in technology trends
  • How financial influencers on social media are challenging the traditional marketing strategies of the investment community, and the growing popularity of stock trading amongst younger investors
  • Why the asset management industry is rife for disruption all the way from front office to back office and how products are packaged, marketed, and sold
  • How asset managers like Roundhill and CoinShares’ XBT Provider family of ETPs can bring secular investment themes to investor portfolios in an easy way
  • Why investing should be fun, and how the culture of finance firms is changing as a new generation of leaders emerges

Meltem Demirors commented on the event, “While we spend our day-to-day at CoinShares thinking about digital assets, especially bitcoin, along with the evolution of capital markets and finance, we recognize that the world around us is also evolving. CoinShares Conversations explores other dynamic forces shaping our world - from economic shifts to changes in consumer preferences, from technology innovations to new regulations, and from cultural trends to scientific discoveries.”

CoinShares Conversations is a forum to convene leaders from other industries and fields to share their perspectives, insights and expertise on the key trends shaping our world. We believe that nothing around us is static, and everything is increasingly interconnected, which is why these conversations are important to shaping our view of the world and our role in it.
