Making Sense of Cryptocurrencies: Part #5


AGN Global Business Voice: Business Alert

Welcome to the final part of this GBV series seeking to demystify the world of the cryptocurrency – valuable fiscal tool or fantasy investment vehicle with no intrinsic value?  Since we conceived of this series a few months back, the market value of Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency had hit the heights of U$60,000 per coin, then halved to just over U$30,000 and is now gradually rising again –approaching the U$46,000 mark on 9 August 2021. Volatility is the hallmark of cryptocurrencies.

In this article we explore some of the views of the professionals within our own member firms.  It turns out that cryptocurrency experts are a pretty rare beast – although we suspect this is more to do with a reluctance to step into the spotlight on the topic rather than depth of capability.

Business Alert: Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) - Good Business, Or a Matter Of Survival?


AGN Global Business Voice: Business Alert

What is a diversity & inclusion (D&I) policy and why is it good business? How do you set yourself up for success? What are some practical takeaways to action now?

A firm’s D&I policy is broader than pursuing equity by gender or ethnicity; it can also tackle sexual orientation, class, age, religious preference and physical or mental disability. A diverse workforce breeds creativity and innovation, useful for both client service and running your own board room! Businesses that don’t operate diverse and inclusive workplaces see higher turnover rates as there’s a greater risk of a more hostile work environment developing. A McKinsey report found that the companies that performed worst on diversity were almost 30% more likely to underperform on profitability.
