Stay ahead of client demands
with the latest technology

Innovate with tokenization

Tokenization is poised to be a new way for wealth managers to develop innovative products through digitalization of non-bankable assets: such as using ‘smart contracts’ to settle trades automatically or facilitate the offering of more individualized products.

Leverage tomorrow’s technology today

Blockchain can lead to significant operational efficiency gains by allowing you to digitize manual or even paper-based processes like delivery versus payment (DVP) and corporate actions.

Deliver diversification to clients

Clients are always on the lookout for new ways to diversify their portfolios. Crypto can be a great addition given it is often far removed from many other assets within a client’s portfolio. 

Full crypto peace of mind

Given the nature of their business, clients have an inherent level of trust in you to protect their finances. By offering crypto assets natively through your services, you can lower barriers for use like dealing with crypto exchanges or creating wallets – all while delivering added value.

We see a clear path for developing crypto assets and blockchain solutions.

Enabling financial institutions to offer crypto assets

Adrien Treccani, Founder and CEO of METACO, and Francisco Fernandez, Founder and Member of the Board of Avaloq, discuss the latest developments in the crypto asset space. Watch the video to find out how we enable financial institutions to offer crypto assets to their clients in a secure, compliant and convenient way.

The simpler approach to blockchain and crypto assets

Integrate crypto and blockchain into your existing setup

Tough questions often arise for financial institutions when it comes to implementing crypto assets into the product portfolio and adding blockchain into their technology stack. How  can we introduce such vastly different products and technologies?

At Avaloq, our approach is to make your existing setup crypto ready in terms of products and processes, instead of using a separate platform. This approach, in turn, makes it easier, faster and more cost-effective for banks and wealth managers to start offering crypto and blockchain-based solutions.

Prioritizing security for you and your clients

Security is of the utmost importance for banks and wealth managers – not to mention their clients. That’s why we have focused on making our crypto offering both highly secure and flexible. 

Apart from our highly secure data storage, we have also partnered with Metaco. The company offers Hardware Security Modules with military grade security for storage of private keys and managing wallets, as well as native multi-signature functionalities for transactions.

A clear blockchain roadmap

At Avaloq, we see a clear path for developing blockchain solutions for financial institutions and their clients. We’ve already started with the basics: offering crypto assets like Bitcoin and, later this year, ERC-20 coins including Ethereum. 

Now, our next focus area is tokenization. With this, we aim to offer financial organizations the chance to tokenize non-bankable assets like real estate, collectables or non-regulated funds. We see ‘smart contracts’ and Initial Coin Offerings as an avenue to develop new, innovative products, and we’re working hard to enable our clients to trade tokens with connections to exchanges, a native offering within our financial software. 

Tokenizing non-bankable assets provides a unique opportunity for financial institutions

But how can you bank the non-bankable?

Blockchain as the next generation
processor to accelerate finance

Today, most financial institutions keep their own ledgers and are required to share vast amounts of data to remain up to date. This leads to errors and the need for cumbersome reconciliation, challenges highlighted by the fact that the amount of inter-bank data being processed continues to increase – from about 27 million messages a month in 2017 to 36 million a month in 2019. Distributed Ledger Technology ensures a shared database and a single truth source. Eliminating the need for reconciliation.
