Welcome back to another episode of FinTech Focus TV. Today, Toby is thrilled to welcome Duncan Trenholme, Co-Head of Digital Assets at TP ICAP, to the show.

In this episode, Duncan shares his personal journey into the digital assets space since his initial graduate programme at TP ICAP in 2008. After a successful 8-9 years in equities, Duncan fell into a "rabbit hole of crypto and bitcoin" through personal interest– an interest that would ultimately transform his place within the traditional finance (TradFi) industry. 

Duncan has been at the forefront of the revolution and it has been fascinating to hear his thoughts about the future of the sector. Toby invites Duncan to share what the 'Era of Convergence' means to him; the pair continue to discuss how both TradFi and DeFi (decentralised finance) have influenced one another to catalyse technological innovation.

Duncan is a true visionary, this is an episode not to be missed.
