    The Metaverse, Digital Assets & Banking, What You Need to Know

    With the rising popularity of digital assets and the potential of the metaverse, a lot of companies are starting to enter the space – find out what you need to know. Interest in the metaverse has soared since Facebook changed its name to Meta in late 2021, committing to building out its own platform. Digital assets, currencies, and entire worlds are being developed and could lead to a monumental change in banking and social interaction.

    To learn more about these exciting trends happening in the digital space, please join AFP Calgary’s event on Tuesday, May 24 presented by Bank of America


    Speaker: Tiffany Wan, Bank of America


    Tiffany joined Bank of America in 2019 as the Head of Strategy for Global Transaction Services, where she focuses on the long-term strategic roadmap and priorities for the business. Tiffany began her career at Deloitte Consulting in the strategy practice where she worked with financial services clients. Tiffany completed Deloitte’s one-year high potential program called GovLab and used the appointment to research and publish papers on bitcoin and blockchain technology. Tiffany later worked at JP Morgan Chase, starting in the payments strategy group working on strategy and corporate development across JPMC’s consumer and wholesale payments businesses. She also worked in Wholesale Payments as Head of Product and Strategy for Liink, partnering with technology, compliance, legal and operations to bring to market within 6 months a new product built on APIs, private cloud, and DLT.
