W&F Q4 2023

Editor’s Comment Welcome to the Q4 edition of Wealth & Finance International magazine. As always, with every issue we endeavour to provide fund managers, alongside institutional and private investors with the very latest industry news in the traditional and alternative investment spheres. As the end of 2023 nears, it comes time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the past 12 months. While ongoing hurdles include fee pressure, the cost of living crisis, and inflation, there is also a lot to be feeling really positive about in the world of finance. From the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain; to the growth of fintech in the form of mobile banking, peer-to-peer lending, and cryptocurrency exchanges; to the increasing focus on sustainability; to the changing demographics of investors and consumers, with millennials becoming the largest generation in the workforce; to the increasing globalisation of financial markets allowing access to a wider range of investment opportunities than ever before, the industry is thriving and it is an exciting time to be a part of it! As such, we are delighted to be showcasing our cutting-edge award-winning enterprises who are truly evolving with the industry and defining the future of finance, whether a payment solution startup, crosschain asset control blockchain platform, crypto and fintech information platform, cryptocurrency charity, and more. I hope you enjoy exploring their success stories and that you have a prosperous end to the year. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you back again for our Q1 2024 issue.
