Risk Management in Finance, Insurance and Engineering with Blockchain Add to calendar

Daniel R. Robles, P.E., of the Integrated Engineering Blockchain Consortium, will speak to us at a dinner meeting held jointly with the Harvard Club at Hogan Lovells in DC. He will explain how Blockchain technology provides the means to measure “risk” as an intrinsic basis of currency to manage the value generated through the cycle that exists among Finance, Insurance, and Engineering. These three forces acting together are responsible for nearly all value upon which society depends. Blockchain technology can provide a foundation of trusted information we need for broad economic opportunity and political stability.
