What matter to your Client?
The world of asset management has changed dramatically. What investors are really interested in today is diversifying their savings into the real economy with targeted investments in assets they know and can make their own judgements on. The challenge for financial institutions is to support them in the decision-making and research process. Selecting and giving access to profitable opportunities in the global market, sharing their operational and growth aspects, digitalising them in order to upgrade traditionally illiquid products into instruments that can be traded on secondary markets, but above all experiencing together with their clients the excitement of being part of the future.
The financial world has always been very clear about the concept of product processing. Certificates, Derivatives, Wrappers, Securitisation are known and used methods. Tokenization is a further and futuristic evolution of this process. A system where the content of the financial instrument becomes fully digital and exchangeable without intermediaries. Regulated by a public contract, it can be automated and held directly by the owner in an online or physical wallet and is fully decentralised. It can be used as collateral and can be sold without any formality.
The latter is a unique advantage for lenders who can be guaranteed as never before. These are just some of the many advantages of the token.
The distribution of tokenised assets takes place through the Elviria platform. A primary marketplace established to provide a global showcase for the generated assets. Elviria provides institutional and professional investors with the opportunity to invest in various classes of products that are illiquid by nature, reducing the constraints to hold them for many years regardless of their possible future needs. Buying commodities such as diamonds or gold, artworks, real estates, shares in non-listed companies and all those assets means strong limitation in term of liquidity and efficiency in trading. Today, an artwork could become the collateral of a digital token that, by extension, could become a trading currency.
To be listed on Elviria, fintechs have to go through a comprehensive selection process. Technology is tested, Business and Financial plan must be based on robust assumptions to be proven under stress test scenarios. The team must be able to prove their ability to complete what they propose.
Crypto strategies are the most popular among investors looking for high profits. A problem for financial institutions that are not experts in the field. The peculiarity of cryptocurrencies is the similarity to traditional currencies but with trading rules similar to derivative strategies.
Strategies made in house as well as strategies of the major investment houses are available over the counter, without particularly onerous entry conditions. We focus on capital protection combined with fixed annual return solutions, attractive to Trustees and Family Offices.
Ephelia offers tokens that are backed by gold and diamonds they represent and deposited in a Swiss vault in a highly secure free-zone. Gold and diamonds are thus offered to customers through a real-time process, immediately exchangeable. Custody is part of this offer.
Cryptocurrencies that adopt the consensus algorithm (Proof of Work) are developed through a process called mining. Specific computers and software constantly work to obtain a token. The cost of electricity is the key factor. A lucrative but complicated investment.
The luxury sector is certainly unstoppable. The constant need for liquidity of manufacturers due to production always being a year ahead and the e-commerce sector imposing stockpiling, offers interesting opportunities for investors with considerable returns.
Fine arts are a valuable asset but have the major problem of liquidity and marketability. Raising money with a painting as collateral is difficult and requires a complex process of evaluation. Further complicated when the work is protected by governmental bodies. Ephelia has the solution.
Leisure & Hospitality
The post-pandemic recovery has seen the luxury hospitality sector at double figures growth, not least because of the excellent return on investment that can be expected. Opportunities are secured by major assets that need liquidity and are paid at a price that is mutually beneficial.
Supporting operations for companies specialised in real estate construction can be interesting for specific well-selected projects. We identify those opportunities with a proven business plan and envisage significant returns. We provide tokenisation in order to make them also easily marketable.
