Over the last 35 years Oki Matsumoto’s career has tracked the front of the massive transition of financial services. He started as an investment banker. Then he became a stock broker. Now he is entering cryptocurrencies. What’s next?
Come to learn how he is working to create a new type of global cyberspace-comprehensive financial service company.
In 1999 he launched Monex, an online brokerage to create an ideal future for personal finance and to encourage Japanese who are hoarding their savings to actively invest.
In 2018 Monex bought Coincheck, the Tokyo cryptocurrency exchange that was targeted by hackers earlier this year. This acquisition brought together one of Japan’s largest online brokerages with one of the nation’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges.
With the finance industry in the middle of a “fintech” boom, Mr. Matsumoto believes companies with advanced financial technologies, such as blockchain, will be essential for providing secure banking and payment services in the future. These institutions will come up with new financial products based on the core blockchain technologies behind cryptocurrencies to widen the scope of finance and investment.
This event will be in a dialogue format. The speaker looks forward to engaging in Q & A with ACCJ members.
