Meet our speakers: Brant Pallasch, Strait Capital
Blockchain Boot Camp is just around the corner. On October 24th, you can catch up on all things bitcoins, blockchains, cryptocurrency, and smart contracts related. This intense one-day seminar will feature leaders in the industry providing in-depth analysis and strategies around security, legalities, and the financial opportunities available in this fast-growing marketplace.
As the market around distributed ledger technology (DLT) grows and gains acceptance, the regulatory climate will also adjust. At the Boot Camp, Brant Pallasch of Dallas-based Strait Capital will be delivering important guidance to navigate these developments. Pallasch is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and has earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting and a Master of Science in accounting, both from the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University. He is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Strait Capital, after a successful tenure as Managing Director with Blue River Partners. He oversees operations at Strait Capital, driving best practices, and implemented the key performance indicators across the private equity, hedge fund, compliance services, and family office divisions.
Pallasch’s broad experience includes developing the infrastructure to assist emerging fund managers, designing and implementing process controls and procedures for asset management, and managing relationships with brokers and service providers. While all asset-management classes require sound infrastructure, the technological nature of DLT, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies benefits even more from Pallasch’s background. His discussion of the operational infrastructure of DLT investment funds will be invaluable, particularly in regard to asset custody and investment accounting. He will provide valuable thought leadership around the management of assets, infrastructure best practices, and forming institutional investment funds.
Pallasch and Strait Capital are proud to sponsor the Blockchain Boot Camp and be a part of a broader education of potential investors of bitcoins and other similar assets. They will demonstrate the advantages of a partner well versed in the necessary institutional platforms, as well as the flexibility of a boutique level of services with experienced fund managers.
