Gossip About Gossip: How Aberdeen Plans to Tokenize Investment Funds on Hedera

October 25, 2022

Private equity investments are often regarded as higher risk profiles than any other asset classes. Because of liquidity concerns and higher barriers of entry, everyday individual investors are steered away from alternative asset classes like private equity. That’s where fractionalization of large-scale investments through blockchain and DLT technology provides accessibility and privacy among individual investors.

On this episode of Gossip About Gossip, a Hedera Podcast, host Zenobia Godschalk talks with Senior Investment Manager of Hedge Funds at Aberdeen, Duncan Moir. Moir shares his insights into Aberdeen’s decision for tokenizing investments on the Hedera Hashgraph and joining the governing council with a bullish investment towards the future of fund management.

This episode features:

  • Limitations for individual investors looking to invest in bonds and assets.
  • Aberdeen tokenizing their funds with Hedera Hashgraph and joining the governance council.
  • How tokenizing funds, integrating blockchain and DLT will be beneficial for Aberdeen.

“We have kind of three parts to our strategy in terms of product technology, and then the strategic kind of infrastructure related part, and this fits neatly into that. So, we were really excited to see where this goes and where we can help Hedera Hashgraph find current use cases within financial services,” Moir said.

Duncan Moir is a business analyst by trade and now oversees the alternative investment strategies division of Aberdeen, focusing on alternative asset classes and implementing best cases for new innovative financial technologies within Aberdeen. He earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Strathclyde.
