The Tipping Point of Crypto and the HashKey Story​




Back in January 2021, HashKey Group’s very own Michel Lee called that 2021 will be the “tipping point for institutional adoption in digital assets”. One year later, how has Michel’s prediction panned out? In this episode, we caught up with our Executive President to revisit this. Originally trained as a computer scientist and started his career as a Quant, Michel also shares his journey from traditional finance to crypto, HashKey’s core businesses, capital investments and upcoming roadmap, as well as why it’s a great time now for financial institutions to get into digital assets.


Michel Lee is the Executive President at HashKey Group. With 25 years of international investment banking experience, Michel leads the Group’s activities in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, bringing deep expertise in capital raising and M&A transactions to the digital asset management business. Prior to HashKey, he was Head of APAC Capital Markets at UBS, where he pioneered numerous new derivatives and alternative investment products and business models.
