In an era of increased globalisation and digitalisation, coupled with the revolutionisation of the finance and investment world through new and disruptive technologies (blockchain technology in the main), PK Mwangi Global Consulting provides management advisory services to corporations, NGOs, governments, SMEs, institutional investors and high-net worth individuals (HNWIs) on finance and investment matters as well as relates to investment opportunities in the new cryptocurrency space.
Initially billed as a medium of exchange by its founder- Satoshi Nakamoto, bitcoin has risen exponentially in value- from a low of $0.17 in December 2010 to a historic high of $19,498.63 in December 2017- a rise of 11.47 million % (not a typo) in 7 years. It is increasingly being viewed as a store of value, rather than a medium of exchange, thereby earning the title- ‘digital gold’.
Investing in a world equity index like the MSCI All Country World Index (MSCI ACWI) comprising as much exposure as possible across region, sector and currency, interspersed with period tactical shifts, may well provide the most cost-effective way of maximising net investment return.

Initial coin offerings (ICOs) are a new way of raising funds for projects running on blockchain technology. Similar to the role venture capital (VC) plays in financing start-ups in traditional finance, ICOs are the future of venture investing in the blockchain world enabling cryptocurrency founders raise capital from retail investors who can sell these cryptocurrencies for cash or for some other cryptocurrency on the secondary market.
Significant impairment of assets may be a prelude to corporate collapse. Accounting standards provide a framework within which to measure this loss of value thereby enabling key stakeholders in restructuring negotiations make the right calls.
The challenges to proper corporate governance emanating from a fastchanging regulatory world and the requirement for timely and accurate performance reporting and disclosure by both shareholders and the competitive market landscape means that corporate leadership is under enormous pressure to deliver within a tightly-confined space.
Businesses collapse for a variety of reasons. More often than not the signs of failure appear relatively early on and may be easy to discern for the perceptive observer. However, corporate leadership may simply be in denial or may deliberately suppress the symptoms of failure. We look at some Critical Failure Factors (CFFs) that indicate the onset of corporate failure.
