Investing in asset classes like real-estate, artwork, or jewelry calls for a level of financial commitment beyond the reach of all but the wealthiest, high-net worth investors. Access to capital has always been a challenge for small and medium players in the traditional marketplace. Tokenization, a streamlined blockchain based approach to asset securitization, is simplifying and making investments in these assets more accessible. Tokenization enables people to invest directly into high-value assets within the umbrella of the individual’s financial strength and without being obliged to go through the entire chain of intermediaries.
Institutions are leveraging blockchain technology to offer next-gen services around tokenized securities, including KYC/AML, token issuance, order management, matching, atomic settlement, crypto custody, digital asset servicing, general meeting services and trade surveillance. Investors benefit from a choice of settlement in fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies, stable coins or any digital currencies, thus gaining from both liquidity and flexibility. Moreover, tokenization of assets is leading the way towards “smart contracts” that is replacing expensive and time-consuming business processes such as property transfers and requests.
Quartz brings to you Smart Solutions for Capital Markets:
- Re-imagining Trade Settlements on Blockchain - The Settlements facilitates Delivery versus Payment (DvP) settlement of tokenized assets held on the ledger, with each organization operating as nodes thereby ensuring increased transparency and immutability of data. The solution comes with Smart Contracts that enable validation and matching of off market trades as well as real-time, final, irrevocable settlement of these assets on the distributed ledger.
