Two pioneers in the tokenized asset industry are now joining forces. With a strategic cooperation, the tokenization provider Cashlink and the marketplace for traditional and tokenized securities area2invest expand their services. area2invest is Europe’s first marketplace for securities and token issuances. The Liechtenstein-based fintech links private, professional and institutional investors with issuers of various asset and product classes. Investors can invest 100% digitally, in compliance with regulations and completely free of charge. The fintech Cashlink has developed one of Europe’s leading tokenization solutions. A modular, technological infrastructure enables the legally compliant issuance and management of digital securities for banks and investment platforms. The issuance of digital securities offers numerous advantages for issuers and investors. Issuing costs can be reduced by up to 65% compared to a traditional securities issuance. At the same time, digital securities convince through settlement processes in almost real time and significantly lower transaction costs. Now issuers can benefit from a one-stop shop solution spanning from tokenisation towards listing and distribution utilizing the combined expertise. Customers of area2invest benefit from access to Cashlink’s proven tokenization infrastructure. Cashlink’s infrastructure is one of the most well-established on the market with numerous successful issuances, including clients with high requirements such as Bankhaus Scheich. At the same time, digital securities issued via the Cashlink infrastructure can now be listed directly on the area2invest platform. Cashlink customers thus gain access to an investor base and benefit from efficient and streamlined investor onboarding and placement process.
‘We are delighted that we can now combine our technical expertise in the area of tokenization with area2invest’s know-how in the issuance of multiple asset and product classes.. Our customers will benefit from an increasingly attractive distribution network in the future.’
