James Brockhurst writes for CampdenFB on decentralised finance

Private Client Senior Associate, James Brockhurst's article entitled 'The DeFi revolution: The opportunities and the risks for family offices' has been published in CampdenFB.

"We have reached the point where many family offices are open to some form of crypto-assets investment, and a number have allocated serious resources to crypto-assets. In some cases, this is driven by the lure of returns, in other cases by next generation family members advocating crypto investment", James explains. He highlights that these investment opportunities include security tokens, Non-Fungible Tokens and DeFi (Decentralised Finance).

The article goes on to answer the question 'What is a DeFi?' and illustrates its function when used in a borrower and lender scenario.
