On 16 December 2022, Longevity Financial Club and Deep Knowledge Group had the pleasure of hosting their 2022 Longevity Christmas Reception in the UK House of Lords. The reception was also sponsored by Deep Knowledge Analytics, Aging Analytics Agency, Longevity.International, Longevity Card and DeepTech and Longevity Industry Financial Advisors.
At the reception a number of Deep Knowledge Group Executives and Partners provided overviews of the Group’s major developments of 2022, upcoming plans for 2023, and key strategic insights for decision makers within the sectors that they are most active within, at the intersection of DeepTech, Longevity, Data Science and InvestTech.
The event brought together around 130 guests, including government officials and representatives of economic organisations, embassies, investors and thought-leaders across technology, investment and governance, as well as colleagues and friends from the Deep Knowledge Group community.
Dominic Jennings (Head of Strategic Partnerships, Deep Knowledge Group / DeepTech and Longevity Industry Financial Advisors) began the event by welcoming everyone to the Annual Longevity Christmas Reception and giving a brief overview of key outcomes and developments of the Group during the past year.
2022 was a pivotal year for Deep Knowledge Group, with the launch of a wide array of new projects, events and Big Data Analytical Dashboards, a substantial strengthening of our Data Science assets, and significant progress in our ongoing work to develop the technological, financial and ecosystemic frameworks and instruments to support the accelerated development of DeepTech and Longevity Industrialisation and Financial Commoditisation, the establishment of an integral financial infrastructure for their further growth and stabilisation, and the emergence of DeepTech and Longevity as new asset classes of themselves.
In concluding his opening remarks, Dominic said: “From a substantial expansion of our workforce across analytics, Data Science, finance, media, business development, philanthropy and executive management, a continued strengthening of our UK, Switzerland and Europe branches, and significant expansion of our newer branch in the UAE, 2022 has been a year of unquestionable growth, consolidation, refinement and development, positioning us on excellent terms for the execution of our expanding ambitions and the efficient implementation of our strategic agenda for 2023 and beyond.”

In closing his talk, Deep Knowledge Group General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy said: “Deep Knowledge Group is committed to execute the concept of DeepTech and Longevity Financial Commoditistion, reflected in its pursuit of a truly ecosystemic approach through its various financial service divisions to establish an integral financial infrastructure to support the commoditisation of the DeepTech and Longevity Industries as fundamentally new asset classes”.
The evening's third speaker, Stefan Hascoet, Managing Partner of Deep Knowledge Group’s Switzerland branch, provided a deeper overview of trends in the realms of Longevity Investment and Longevity Financial Industry, and an overview of the Group’s activities in Switzerland over the past few years.
Next to speak was Talgat Takiev, Head of Investor Relations for Deep Knowledge Group and DeepTech and Longevity Industry Financial Advisors, who spoke about this year’s launch of Deep Knowledge Group’s InvestTech Platform and Digital UK Ecosystem Big Data Analytics Dashboard. These platforms were launched with a mission to substantially improve access to private equity markets, and reduce financial and transactional risks. Our platforms have been developed as a combined AI-driven big data analytical system that profiles the entire UK digital landscape and allows investors, startups, public and private organisations to utilise advanced automated tools to make intelligent data-driven decisions.
He also gave key highlights from Deep Knowledge Group’s participation in the 2nd Arab-British Economic Summit, where Talgat unveiled the Group’s Gulf Region DeepTech and Longevity Initiative, which represents a roadmap guiding the company’s intensifying presence in the GCC region today and into the future, and spoke briefly on the recent strategic trip to the United Arab Emirates that Deep Knowledge Group executives undertook in November 2022 as part of an ongoing expansion of its Gulf region branches and its ongoing mandate to deepen, strengthen and intensify its DeepTech-focused activities in the GCC, and for the purpose of convening several high-level meetings between DKG top executives and high-calibre policy and decision makers, including (among others) Dr Omar Najim, Executive Office Affairs Director at Department of Health Abu Dhabi.
Talgat Takiev, Head of Investor Relations for Deep Knowledge Group, said: “Private markets are always evolving and new investment approaches are needed. With the launch of the latest projects, Deep Knowledge Group aims to improve investment management processes in the private equity markets and to establish a technological bridge between the UK and Gulf Region.”

The evening’s fifth presenter, Dominic Jennings (Head of Strategic Partnerships, Deep Knowledge Group / DeepTech and Longevity Industry Financial Advisors) spoke about the history of the Group’s DeepTech Data Science and Analytics development, highlighting how the systems, technologies and methodologies underlying many of the Group’s newly-released Big Data Analytical Dashboards have been developed over more than a decade, from creating the initial frameworks for analysing DeepTech and Longevity, to the production of fundamental analytical reports, then advanced visualisations and mindmaps, to the creation of thematic dashboards and finally, to their newest iterations as AI-driven end-to-end Big Data Analytical Systems and platforms. He also discussed the various integrations that have been developed and proposed for the Group’s Big Data Analytical Dashboards. These included the InvestTech Platform for Private Equity with a proprietary Investor Relationship Management System, as well as the IP Investment and Trading Platform which will be a specialised solution for R+D organisations, investors and startups to commercialise Intellectual Property opportunities. He also reiterated the Group’s ambition to develop a variety of Thematic Stock Exchanges in Longevity, FinTech, FemTech and other sectors to manage and develop the inevitable commoditisation of these frontier domains in the future.
Speaking on the potential of the Group’s most recent suite of Dashboards, Dominic Jennings said: “These systems offer profound investment and data science analytics via customised IT platforms, covering over 550,000 companies, 40,000 investors, 40m data points and up to 180 parameters for the comparative SWOT analysis rankings. They also provide wide sector coverage in frontier domains including HealthTech and Longevity, BioTech, DeepTech and GovTech, as well as FemTech and SpaceTech.’’

Speaking about Key Trends in DeepTech Industrialization, Dominic said: ‘“Approximately 99% of the DeepTech and Frontier companies analysed are privately held, ranging from pre-seed startups to mature pre-IPO companies. Thus Deep Knowledge Group with its analytical subsidiaries are plugging the information gap for companies and investors involved in potentially the newest, largest and most complex industries for the 21st century.’’
Next attendees were joined by the evening’s guest speaker, Taha Coburn-Kutay - Chairman, UK Asian Business Council (UKABC), who paid tribute to the UK’s emerging tech industries, particularly to the Femtech industry which he personally champions. Taha encouraged the audience to participate in future DKG projects, especially given the positive impact they strive to make and also to support the UK’s growing ecosystems. He finished by asking the audience to sign up to the soon to be launched Longevity Card during his congratulatory toast to the Deep Knowledge Group team.

Speaking about the developments and projects that had been thus far highlighted as part of the evenings various presentations, Taha Coburn-Kutay - Chairman, UK Asian Business Council, said: “DKG has connected something which I would only imagine to see in 2060, or when watching sci-fi movies as a kid! The idea of developing and merging a private equity fund, AI tech, healthcare, and a banking card is amazing! I would encourage you all to participate and sign up to the Longevity Card! It's a brilliant concept and I look forward to seeing what you do next!”
Diana Arama, Deep Knowledge Group Events and Director of Mayfair Events then took to the stage to provide a comprehensive overview of the major events organised by Deep Knowledge Group in 2022, including:

The evening’s eighth presenter, Ian Inkster (Head of Policy Analytics at Aging Analytics Agency) spoke about the significant strengthening of DKG’s DeepTech for Social Good and Techno-Philanthropy divisions that occurred throughout 2022
These included the launch of numerous open-access reports, IT-Platforms and other projects by Deep Knowledge Philanthropy, founded in 2021 with the mandate of using DeepTech to deliver 10x-50x the social impact on humanity than the philanthropy ecosystem average, and the commitment to use the latest proprietary DeepTech innovations to further progress in the socially-inclusive development of DeepTech itself and the delivery of technologies' foremost humanitarian impacts in an accelerated, smarter, and more efficient manner - a concept and new paradigm for the global philanthropic ecosystem that, as Ian remarked, we have called Techno-Philanthropy.
Ian also gave an overview of the official 2022 launch of the decentralised end-to-end philanthropy analytics, collaboration and technology-development platform Philanthropy.International, developed with the support of Deep Knowledge Group and driven by analytics provided by Deep Knowledge Group’s dedicated AI and Data Science Division.
Lastly, Ian touched upon the recent establishment of ATLAS (Assistive Technology, Longevity and Ageing Society) at a launch event in the UK House of Lords this year. ATLAS seeks to help inform and guide the public and private sectors to embrace the UK’s growing AssistiveTech, Longevity and AgeTech industries and to operate with a level of awareness that no longer excludes the senior community and those living with disabilities. Stemming from the notion that technology is a major enabler of social inclusion, the initiative aims to leverage partnerships through convening tech founders, venture philanthropists, and impact investors to deliver a future of technology for all.
Aging Analytics Agency Head of Policy Analytics Ian Inkster
In concluding his presentation, Ian Inkster, Head of Policy Analytics at Aging Analytics Agency, said: “The Philanthropy.International big data analytical dashboard and corresponding end-to-end platform collectively deliver on-demand market intelligence across the global philanthropic ecosystem. This brings philanthropy up to speed with industry and opens the door to the industrialisation of philanthropy. They were built as a solution for organisations seeking the most sophisticated tools for comprehensive intelligence, precise mapping of regional challenges, smart matching of donors and volunteers to NGOs and nonprofits, and monitoring impact trends of NGOs in the charity sector. Interested organisations seeking to join are encouraged to write to email@example.com”
As the ninth speaker of the evening, Roxy Iqbal (Director and Co-founder, Longevity Card) gave an overview of the newly developed and soon to launch Longevity Card, an innovative Neobank, mHealth console and Marketplace which together serves as the new way to lead a healthy lifestyle and manage your money in one secure app. She also went on to tease the development of the highly anticipated Longevity Club, which brings enhanced Longevity focused services and features, using high end technology to a global user base.
Roxy Iqbal, Director of Longevity Card said: “Our Slogan is ‘Health is the New Wealth’. It is quite clear that this global crisis will have long-lasting effects. People and financial institutions now have a newfound understanding of their priorities, and the concept of health and longevity will receive greater attention and will be rightly considered as a tangible and precious asset of equal standing to financial health. By combining these two components, Longevity Card allows our customers to take care of their health and their wealth, at the same time, in one app.”
Dmitry Kaminskiy (General Partner, Deep Knowledge Group) then took to the stage for his closing speech, in which he highlighted the major initiatives and milestones that Deep Knowledge Group targets to achieve for the 2023-24 period, including:
Longevity Industry Index
Longevity Stock Exchange
Longevity Investment Bank
DeepTech Big Data Analytical System 2.0
Long-term Technological Forecasting System
Importantly, he also stressed that besides financial and commercial activities, in 2023-2024 Deep Knowledge Group will prioritise ongoing DeepTech for Social Good projects:
5th Industrial Revolution Institute
Techno-Philanthropy as a New Paradigm for Global Philanthropy Ecosystem
Beyond 2023, Deep Knowledge Group plans to double-down on its commitment to develop the ecosystemic infrastructure (platforms, indices, exchanges, financial instruments and derivatives) to support the emergence of DeepTech and Longevity Industries as fundamentally new asset classes, as well as deep Insights on the Financial Markets and Investment Strategies, including development of modern InvestTech solutions and DeepTech investment approaches driven by Data Science and Big Data Analytics.
Deep Knowledge Group General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy
Mr Kaminskiy said: “Despite the accelerated pace of technological progress that characterises the 21st century, in reality, technology’s practical implementation and overall impact on humanity faces many challenges. For this purpose, Deep Knowledge Group intends to set up the 5th Industrial Revolution Institute, which will conduct sophisticated long-term technology forecasting and help ensure stable 5-IR technology development via AI-driven SWOT analyses to identify and neutralise risk factors. The institute will embody and carry forward DKG’s characteristically ecosystemic approach, utilising the integral fusion of sophisticated analytics with investment, internal entrepreneurship and financial industry activities to stabilise, optimise and accelerate DeepTech and Longevity industry, technology and infrastructure development, and safeguard the foundational basis for the 5th Industrial Revolution. Keep a keen eye out for news, practical developments and the first fruits of this highly strategic project in 2023.”
To close out the evening’s presentations and talks, Dominic Jennings (Head of Strategic Partnerships, Deep Knowledge Group / DeepTech and Longevity Industry Financial Advisors) thanked the assembled guests for attending the day’s festivities, noting that it had been a pleasure to see so many guests at the reception and that Deep Knowledge Group was very keen to continue discussions with friends and partners about working together in the future.
The grand finale of Dominic's speech featured a prominent visitor from the North Pole who was presented with his very own exclusive Santa Claus Ecosystem.
