AGDelta and InvestaCrowd join forces to mark the new era of digitalization for Alternative Investments and Digital Securities
AGDelta — the region’s leading digital wealth platform provider for private and public investments to private banks, asset managers, family offices, and tech-driven challenger banks — and InvestaCrowd, an MAS-licensed, digital securities investment platform, have agreed to form a partnership to originate and distribute digital securities backed by real estate, private equity, and venture capital.
Combining AGDelta’s award-winning, data-driven distribution capabilities for the buy- side and InvestaCrowd’s expertise in sourcing, origination, and digital issuance on the sell-side, the partnership will bring significantly enhanced, technology-driven investment products to market.
“Our latest partnership with AG Delta will allow us to bring new alternative financing arrangements combined with the technology to the money market. The move to digitalize investment-grade securities is leading us to see a whole new landscape of investment offerings. We believe that this will lead us to greater transparency, efficiency, flexibility and enhanced liquidity for capital markets products,” said Julian Kwan, CEO of InvestaCrowd.
Andrew Au, CEO of AGDelta, said, “This collaboration with InvestaCrowd is a logical step to combine best-of-breed buy- and sell-side capabilities to meet market demand for increasingly interesting private and alternative investment opportunities. We welcome InvestaCrowd’s unique offering of Digital Securities to our network and strongly believe this will be the region’s first industrial-strength platform to cater to the convergence between conventional securities and digital securities.”
A digital security is a digital representation of an asset that happens to be a security — an investment contract, for which ownership is verified and recorded on a distributed ledger. A distributed ledger is a consensus of replicated, shared, and synchronized digital data spread geographically across multiple sites or institutions.
Digital securities promise to deliver a new investment product with greater transparency and enhanced liquidity for illiquid assets compared with traditional, paper-based securities.
With its vision to make private and public investments more Accessible, Safer, and Relevant for the wealth management industry, AGDelta has seen US$1.5 trillion in multi-asset wealth investments transacted in production on AGDelta’s enterprise solutions in over 15 countries and involving more than 10,000 client advisors across private banks, asset managers, and family office platforms. In the past 12 months, the Asia-based firm has been the only FinTech to have ever concurrently received the Top FinTech awards from both the MAS and HKMA/HKIB regulators and, in May 2019, was selected as one out of 550 applicants globally for Ping An’s Global Investment and Accelerator programme for accessing the Ping An OneConnect platform and business network.
As one of the first online investment platforms in Singapore to receive a capital market services license for dealing in securities from the MAS, it was recently awarded the 2019 Fintech Awards’ “Best Digital Securities Investment Platform in Asia.” InvestaCrowd’s member base includes accredited investors, family offices, wealth/asset managers, and private banks.
