For any public or private company, it has been legal to issue non-paper/electronic/digital shares and other securities for decades. Now after the breakout of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) you can move your company’s equity and loan records to a blockchain-based register and benefit from the latest developments of the capital markets infrastructure.

Investments in private securities in a digitally wrapped form on distributed ledger allows investors to utilise the benefits of public capital markets with even greater efficiency - enhanced liquidity of private securities, 24/7 market access, near real-time settlement, automated dividends/interest payments, embedded compliance, cryptographically secure digital wallets, cost reduction and easy follow-on rounds.

2019 is a year of notable and applicable use cases and from 2020-2021 digital securities issued on blockchain could begin to operate as a new standard on the private capital market. 

At the event on May 16th we will provide you with the best capital market practice and insights for the legitimate issuance, distribution, private offering and management of securities in a digitally wrapped form (known as security tokens, smart securities or digital securities). 

You are invited to this instructive workshop where you’ll discover 'Why to ask companies for securities in a digitally wrapped form?' so that you can manage your investments in private companies more efficiently.

We also welcome individual and institutional investors to learn about the advantages of the blockchain-enabled investment process. Companies, funds and financial intermediaries interested in the issuance of digital securities and fundraising are aslo invited to attend the event.
