SIX Digital Exchange Partners With Aktionariat to Ease Access to Capitalby Fintechnews Switzerland July 25, 2022
SIX Digital Exchange (SDX) have partnered with Aktionariat, a technology provider for digitised private shares in Switzerland, to further develop the digital ecosystem for issuers and institutional investors.
In a joint statement, both entities said that the partnership will “tackle one of the biggest challenges that growing companies face which is access to capital”.
One of the key success factors for raising capital is access to a broad investor base.
As a result of this partnership, companies issuing shares through Aktionariat’s technology will be able to register digital securities seamlessly in SDX’s regulated Central Securities Depository (CSD).
By being able to offer a wider range of custody options, companies can expand their addressable investor base.
“As part of the growing SIX Digital Exchange ecosystem for private companies, we welcome this partnership with Aktionariat to help entrepreneurs access a wider investor base, make their securities bankable and make their funding journey more efficient”
said Massimo Butti, Head of Equity at SIX Digital Exchange.
“The partnership with SIX Digital Exchange opens a path for making tokens issued with Aktionariat bankable. SDX is deeply rooted in the Swiss financial markets and brings strong expertise when it comes to organizing efficient and accessible securities exchanges. This complements Aktionariat’s know-how in decentralized finance and open blockchain technology very well”,
said Nicola Plain, CEO of Aktionariat.
