Tokenise reveals plans to launch regulated stock exchange for security tokens

Tokenise, set to become among the world’s first stock exchanges for tokenised securities, will launch in Q1, 2022. From today, the public can join the Tokenise community and register for an account to become one of the first to own a piece (or token) of an iconic asset.

Through Tokenise, for the very first time, people can now participate in fractional ownership or royalties by investing in security tokens on a stock exchange fully regulated in Barbados. Fractional ownership allows investors to beneficially own a piece of the physical assets, such as buildings, ships, race horses and land. Royalty tokens – not previously available to trade on an exchange – unlock access to musicians, artists and filmmakers and a huge range of opportunities for fans to own a slice of the income-bearing revenue.

Investors can instantly and effortlessly deposit their money to buy the tokens that are right for them, with all trades executed through a regulated brokerage and executed on the regulated Tokenise Stock Exchange with added security and anti-money laundering (AML) checks. Unlike NFTs and cryptocurrencies which are currently traded on unregulated markets.

Access to these assets has long been the preserve of the expert and major funds, however, at a time when consumers are seeking greater financial inclusion and control, Tokenise’s mission is to democratise ownership for all, empowering everyone to participate in the new world of security tokens easily, safely and affordably.

Tokenise Group was founded by a team of financial services, technology and security experts, led by Mike Kessler, Chief Executive Officer, who has extensive experience in asset management, corporate development and start-ups. Martin Graham, Group Chairman, has played a central role in transforming London into a global financial hub as Director of Markets and Head of AIM at the London Stock Exchange.

In response to growing demand from retail investors for tokenised assets, the team built Tokenise based on the premise that people deserve an accessible, trusted and regulated stock exchange to own and trade a piece of what they love. At the same time, asset owners and artists benefit from previously untapped revenue potential, control of their work, and enhanced liquidity.

Mike Kessler, Tokenise Founder and Chief Executive Officer said: “Opening our waitlist marks the beginning of an exciting journey for Tokenise to really democratise ownership of assets that are important to people. There is already strong interest from experienced investors, but we also want to give everyone the opportunity to join our community. We’re excited; Tokenise is set to revolutionise the way all of us invest, own and trade assets.”

Ownership and trading of securities tokens will be possible through a web-based brokerage platform in Q1 2022, closely followed by an app in Q2 2022. Users will be able to easily review token offerings with charting and analytics to make informed investment and trading decisions. Investors can have peace of mind knowing that Tokenise is managed by seasoned experts.
