Liquidity: Previously non-liquid investments such as real estate are made tradable and liquid through the process of tokenization, for instance by fragmenting ownership of an asset and giving clients the opportunity to purchase tokenized assets directly from the company issuing its’ tokens or on the secondary market through an exchange.
Transparency and transferability: Current securities take up to 3 days to be settled, security tokens built on distributed ledger technology (blockchain) allow for the instant settlement between parties.
Investors: Lowering the initial investment barrier and offering an opportunity for both international institutional investors as well as individual investors to participate in a funding round significantly increases the addressable market and outreach of any company proceeding with an STO.
Regulation: STO’s are securities that are governed by the same rules and regulations that are imposed on traditional securities. However, they also offer fast KYC/AML procedures and other compliance and reg-tech systems allowing for a scalable, automated and efficient digitized fundraising mechanism.
WHO ARE OUR CUSTOMERS?
Large corporates that are looking to raise for their current capital expenditure needs and need to structure an efficient digital fundraising mechanism that will allow them to create dividend/equity or debt-based investment offerings for an international array of potential investors.
Governments that are looking to fund infrastructure or economic development projects, and create an incentive for their potential investor base through the possibility of accessing tokenized healthcare, education and energy projects and using security tokens as a mechanism to give direct benefits to the final customer.
Government STOs are referred to as Initial Sovereign Offerings or ISOs, a concept we have been implementing for Nation States since June 2018.
