Breakfast Seminar with Dr. CHO Sung Hoon
Senior Research Fellow, Korea Capital Market Institute (KCMI)


Dear Members:

I am pleased to inform you that the Forum will be holding a breakfast seminar featuring Dr. CHO Sung Hoon, Senior Research Fellow of the Korea Capital Market Institute, as our speaker on October 18. The title of his presentation will be “Blockchain in Capital Markets: Developments, Outlook, and Implications for Financial Companies.” This seminar is jointly organized by the SFF and the Seoul IB Forum amid heightened expectations that blockchain - a technology or system in which financial transaction information is stored and managed not in a central control server but in a distributed database that is shared by numerous peers (users) - is set to fundamentally change the business landscape of today's financial markets. Details of the seminar are as follows:

Time and Date: 7:30~9:00 am, Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Venue: Lilac & Tulip Room, 2nd Floor, Westin Chosun Hotel
Topic: Blockchain in Capital Markets: Developments, Outlook, and Implications for Financial Companies
Note: As Dr. CHO will speak in Korean, simultaneous interpretation will be provided.

At the upcoming seminar, Dr. CHO will introduce what blockchain technology is all about - how it works, what efforts are being made across the major financial markets and among companies to take advantage of the fledgling technology, while also presenting its implications for both the government and the industry.

Dr. CHO began his career as a research staff at Korea Telecom in 1985, later serving as a research fellow and Vice President of the Korea Capital Market Institute (formerly known as Korea Securities Research Institute) from 2001 to 2014. Presently, he serves as a senior researcher at the KCMI. Dr. CHO received his BA and MA in Business Administration from Seoul National University in 1983 and 1985, respectively, and his Ph.D. in Business Administration from Ohio State University in 1995.

As I believe Dr. CHO’s presentation will be both timely and informative, I strongly urge all SFF members to set aside the time to kindly attend. As always, your confirmation of attendance is very much appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Sang-Woo Kim
Executive Director
