Press wire: Investre leverages Fireblocks technology to enable asset manager foray into tokenization
Investre on its way to become the first digital custodian for UCITS in Europe
Luxembourg, 29 September 2022 – Today, the Luxembourg fintech for values-based investment fund digitalization and tokenization, Investre, announced that it is leveraging technology from Fireblocks, the award-winning digital asset custody, transfer and settlement platform.
By integrating with Fireblocks, Investre is responding to the ever-growing demand from asset managers to tokenize and digitalize investment funds such as UCITS (Undertaking for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities). Investre will be using Fireblocks’ industry-leading digital asset infrastructure for minting and burning tokens, self-custodying assets, and treasury management. Together, the two firms aim to set a new standard for secure digital custody of tokenized UCITS using blockchain technology.
“With our app, Moniflo, we’re continuing our journey to make values-based investments accessible. This means affordable investments—and for us, tokenization is the only way to achieve this. In terms of blockchain security and key management, we’re determined to get this right for investors or our clients and see Fireblocks suite of offerings as what we need to deliver on our vision.” says Investre Founder and CEO, Georges Bock.
“We’re thrilled to have Investre as the newest member of the Fireblocks Network. Their work in bringing greater transparency and cost efficiency to the UCITS marketplace through blockchain technology demonstrates the maturity of the tokenized asset market and the exciting new possibilities for investors to access digital assets more securely,” said Jonathan Dakin, Head of EMEA at Fireblocks.
Testing is currently underway, and the two solutions should be fully integrated by Q4 2022. The adapted solution will make fund custody safer, more transparent, more sustainable, and cost-efficient for all asset managers and retail clients.
Georges Bock continued.
“This signals major progress on the end-to-end digitalization of the investment fund industry. We look forward to going live with this innovation later in the year.”
