Streamlined issuance and assets lifecycle processes, increased transferability, reinforced risk management and compliance, along with eased access to capital raising and increased assets investability, here are some of the benefits provided to assets by blockchain and crypto-assets.
Security Tokens Offerings (STO) bring tangible benefits to both issuers and investors and allow for an alternative funding mechanism that leverages the features of the blockchain technology.
Security token offerings also enable a direct access to the digital native generation and stand at the cutting-edge of innovation while benefiting from a clear regulatory framework since investing in crypto-assets qualifying as financial instruments provides the same level of protection as traditional assets.
Tokenisation offers great opportunities to enhance the investability of illiquid assets or to decapitalise balance sheet. While alternative assets such as real estate or private equity are obvious candidates to tokenisation, the possibilities are endless and are opening up a world of new investment opportunities.
PwC and Tokeny have joined forces in a Joint Business Relationship (JBR) since January 2020, to bring new and innovative services linked with tokenisation in the fields of capital markets and asset servicing.
