Tokenization of real-world assets now offers an alluring opportunity to the global investor community.
Innovation, powered by blockchain, has opened up new marketplaces for tokenized asset classes, including newer types of illiquid and exotic assets. It democratizes the access of assets to mass market investors, enabling people to turn fractional, small-value investments into high-value assets. Tokenization has changed the market structure given its inherent potential for trading across jurisdictions with instant settlement.
To meet the market demand, asset managers and market infrastructure institutions (MIIs) need capabilities to trade tokenized assets of all kinds, operating under the precision and robustness associated with the traditional system.
