Vertalo, a stakeholder registry and compliance platform for regulated security token offerings, today announced its latest partnership with Polymath, a security token platform that makes it easy to create security tokens.
The partnership between Polymath’s platform and Vertalo’s stakeholder registry will allow broker-dealers and issuers to offer compliant security tokens, as well as maintain a registry of all token holders for the life of the issuance. Vertalo’s investor relations functions also enable direct and efficient communication between issuers and shareholders who have participated in Polymath-generated issuances.
“The partnership between Vertalo and Polymath helps buyers and sellers realize the promise of security tokens. This means enhanced liquidity for private assets sold in smaller denominations to an increased number of buyers. Liquidity offers improved security features that provide a complete trading/ownership audit trail. As a charter member of the Polymath marketplace, Vertalo expects to be able to help more issuers and investors than if we worked independently.”
While ICOs may have raised billions of dollars from contributors seeking to support the development of new blockchain-enabled innovations, Security Tokens represent the ability to fractionalize real-world assets, bringing liquidity to assets that had previously been difficult to price or sell. When private assets begin to meet price discovery and ready markets, an untold amount of capital and talent will flood the market, creating capital formation and distribution opportunities never before available to retail and institutional investors.
“Beyond the origination and issuance process, issuers of digital securities will need an elegant solution for investor communication and regulatory reporting. We believe Vetalo will deliver this solution, enable issuers to efficiently communicate with their investors, and help drive the process of value and price discovery in markets for security tokens.”
