NEWS: Baltsaaar & Bitalo AG Enter Strategic Partnership

Baltasaar expands its product universe: investment brokerage and new digital assets with Bitalo AG

 

(BERLIN and KONSTANZ, 11/03/20)

 

Bitalo, the first bank-independent, fully licensed P2P trading platform in Germany that offers extremely secure handling of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Dash, and Baltasaar today announced their strategic partnership to drive mainstream adoption of digital assets in institutional capital markets. Bitalo as a financial institution is fully MiFID II regulated and acts as a liability umbrella (Haftungsdach), enabling Baltasaar to publicly offer its platform and new digital products to yet another category of clients.

 

Baltasaar’s Digital Assets platform enables one-stop digital structuring, origination, issuance, and placement of securities with a few clicks. No traditional costs by an issuing bank, a central securities depository and other intermediaries are incurred. With one BaFin-compliant security prospectus, a company’s offering is passportet and publicly placed on the Baltasaar marketplace in 31 EEA countries.

 

Since the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) in Germany opened up to digital securities early on and has taken a pioneering role within the European Union in approving blockchain-based securities, also leading to intense discussions around Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) and the introduction of an e-Euro as Christian Heinz, CEO of Baltasaar, pointed out in his latest speech at AIBC Virtual Summit.  

 

A fully digitized capital markets process generates cost-efficiencies since no issuing banks and law firms are required. In addition to cost savings, issuers benefit from automated compliance processes, in-built payment management plans & functions, product administration along the lifecycle, direct placement through marketplace listing and, thus, the ability to address private and institutional investors with one solution. The financial instrument, the investment product, is represented as a token on a blockchain enabling all processes to be automated via smart contracts.

 

“Baltasaar – Digital Capital”

 

It is close strategic cooperation of two companies with extensive experience in different areas of the financial world. The partnership will combine strengths and create synergies in both the technological and capital markets domain.

 

The technology solution allows the investor to make his investment directly online undergoing legally required procedures such as KYC and AML, provides an HCBI/PSD2 banking interface, lifecycle product management, automated account reconciliation, and repayments and a built-in secondary market. The secondary market is accessible to customers even without a regulated market, such as a stock exchange, through an OTC (over-the-counter) exchange service. As a result, an investor can trade his investment on the secondary market even prior to time of maturity.

 

Marketplace participants receive all in one place: digital investment products on the primary market, a communications and marketing engine, a custody solution, and secondary markets. “With Bitalo we are expanding our offering and propel the financial markets into the 21st century”, explains Christian Heinz, CEO of Baltasaar.

 

“We are looking forward to implementing more protocols into our technological backbone and lead the way in democratizing access to capital markets for institutional and private investors alike,” Heinz continues.

 

“With our strict regulatory processes and Baltasaar’s cutting edge technology, we’ll actively shape the institutional digital assets market and push it into the future” says Martin Albert, CEO of Bitalo.

Baltasaar and CM-Equity AG establish strategic partnership

Baltasaar and CM-Equity AG establish strategic partnership

Baltasaar goes banking: we are now fully MiFID II-regulated and enable direct public placements for our security issuers

(BERLIN and MUNICH, 04/23/20)

CM-Equity, a leading financial services provider focused on placements and capital market services for institutional investors, fund managers, high net-worth individuals and family offices, and Baltasaar today announced the launch of its Digital Assets platform. CM-Equity as a financial institution is fully MiFID II regulated and acts as liability umbrella (Haftungsdach), enabling Baltasaar to publicly offer the platform to its clients.

“Baltasaar – powered by CM-Equity” now provides its clients with global corporate finance in one integrated solution. The Digital Assets platform enables one-stop digital structuring, issuance, placement and underwriting of securities with a few clicks. Traditional costs incurred by an issuing bank, a central securities depository and other intermediaries are eliminated. The customer subsequently issues a BaFin-compliant security and conducts a uniform, public placement to investors in 31 EEA countries.

Demand for the issuance of digital securities has increased rapidly over the past two years among both institutional and private investors. The Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) in Germany opened up to digital securities early on and has taken a pioneering role within the European Union in approving blockchain-based securities. The growing use of digital securities in public securities offerings was explained in detail at BaFinTech 2019 in Bonn, among other events.

A fully digitalized issuing process eliminates many of the cost points that were previously incurred when paying the issuing banks and the law firms involved. In addition to cost savings, issuers benefit from faster processing, more efficient administration and the ability to address private and institutional investors in the shortest possible time. This is made possible by the technological mapping of the financial instrument via a token and the automated transaction processing by means of blockchain-based smart contracts.

“Baltasaar – powered by CM-Equity”

It is a merger of two companies with extensive experience in different areas of the financial world. The partnership seeks to combine strengths and create synergies.

CM-Equity as a regulated financial institution and liability umbrella enables the platform to publicly market capital market measures of companies throughout the EEA.

The technology solution allows the investor to make his investment directly online undergoing legally required procedures such as KYC and AML, provides a banking interface, the entire token management, automated repayments and a secondary market. The secondary market is accessible to customers even without a regulated financial centre, such as a stock exchange, through an OTC (over-the-counter) module. The issuer thus receives a liquid financial instrument that can be traded on the secondary market.

Customers of the platform receive a uniform structuring, technological implementation and distribution of the securities offering. “Together with CM-Equity we are leading the financial markets into the 21st century”, explains Christian Heinz, CEO of Baltasaar.

“We are pleased that we are enabling companies to take simple, legally compliant capital market measures and democratizing access to financial markets for institutional and private investors alike,” Heinz states further.

“Our Digital Assets platform provides our clients with the necessary infrastructure to raise the capital in the most efficient, transparent and direct way. Our platform functions as One-Stop-Partner for the issuers as well as its investors. Through our regulatory compliant finance solution we create new standards within  Financial Markets Advisory and Corporate Finance of the future,” says Michael Kott, Managing Director of CM-Equity.
