WEBINAR Series: How Digital Assets Play into the Bigger Investment Picture

Many of our clients, blog readers, and past webinar attendees have been asking us for months when we were going to continue our popular Fireside Conversation webinar series, and we are happy to say that we are ready to go! Now, in April and May, we have 4 webinars lined up for you, ready to discuss alternatives, cryptos, digital assets, blockchain, and the considerations for investing in this new, complicated era.

Incredibly, it’s been a “short” year since we brought you our last series of our Fireside Conversation webinars, although we’ve heard from quite a few of you as of late inquiring as to what we were planning next.

Last April, we followed up our 2020 Special Report, On the Brink of a New Era – Are You Prepared? discussing how technologies and innovations were changing the way we live and work, how opportunities for investment in both “real” and “digital” assets were materializing, and how planning was needed to mitigate growing risks we were seeing.

A lot has changed in that short period of time. Now, on the heels of our latest Special Report, The Emerging World of Digital Assets – Why and How to Participate, a pdf copy of which you can download at ,, and keeping in line with the theme of this “new era” of investing we are in, we are proud to present another Series of webinars.

We cordially invite you to watch and listen in on a series of four online panel discussions, or “Fireside Conversations”, during which members of the BFI Management Team, as well as a few select, very Special Guests, will be taking part. The discussions will cover the various topics, or chapters, of our Special Report, as well as themes we deal with on a daily basis here at BFI.

,This series of our Fireside Conversations, in brief

An area that is evolving and maturing at lightning speed is the world of crypto investing. After receiving an increasing number of questions and growing interest from our clients and business partners over the past year, we’ll devote time to discussing investing in alternatives, which include the areas of digital assets, precious metals, and private equity, just to name a few. We’ll then dive into how a new one-stop-shop offering of a diversified, actively managed digital assets/crypto portfolio. Blockchain isn’t just all about cryptocurrencies and digital investing, as we’ll look closer at aXedras and the way blockchain technology can be applied across other businesses and industries. And we’ll reserve our last Fireside Conversation to cover questions we may have missed in the previous webinars and to talk about where investors need to go from here.

Conversation VIII

High Time for Alternatives – from Precious Metals to CryptoWednesday, April 13th, 2022, 17:00 CET (Central European Time/Swiss time)Panelists: Daniel Zurbruegg, Sune Sorensen, Frank R. Suess

In our New Era Special Report of 2021, we wrote about the specter of rising inflation, rising interest rates, and the problems this would create for debt-ridden countries around the world. We are now in the midst of the transition into that new era, with all of its aspects - economic, financial, social, political, and technological. This talk is a review and discussion of how at BFI we are dealing with the issues, the risks, and the opportunities.

Conversation IX

AltAlpha Digital – Active and Diversified Investing in Leading Crypto TalentWednesday, April 27th, 2022, 17:00 CETPanelists: Frank R. Suess, Marc Seidel, Dirk Steinhoff

As discussed in our most recent Special Report on why and how to invest in Digital Assets, the digital transformation of business and financial markets is picking up momentum. In this FSC, we will discuss various aspects of the report and then touch specifically on our AltAlpha Digital strategy, which we have created so that our friends, family, and clients can participate in the sphere of crypto and digital assets in a safer and more convenient manner.

Conversation X

aXedras – Blockchain Beyond Crypto Wednesday, May 11th, 2022, 17:00 CET Panelists: Special Guest: Bruno Ciscato, Urs Röösli from aXedras, Frank R. Suess

Blockchain is not just about cryptocurrencies and digital asset investing. Adequately applied, blockchain can serve other aspects of business and create considerable opportunities of corporate and industrial reengineering. In 2018, together with a few business partners, Frank Suess launched the next BFI company: aXedras. This technology firm has built a DLT-based supply chain management solution for the global precious metals industry, and it is well underway to becoming the global standard. Understanding what aXedras offers will clarify what other opportunities blockchain technology may offer in all kinds of industries and businesses.

Conversation XI

Potpourri of Participant Questions – How to Invest in the New Era?Wednesday, May 25th, 2022, 17:00 CET Panelists: TBD, but may include Frank R. Suess, Scott Schamber, Bernarda Pesantez, Dirk Steinhoff, Daniel Zurbruegg, Marc Seidel

This Fireside Conversation will be based on the questions we collect during the prior three sessions. We'll decipher the topics and questions that generated the most interest, and cap off our thoughts on where we are headed from here. This could go into overtime…
