The portfolio of the Swiss Venture Capitalist CV VC has become an investable asset, through the partnering of the companies MRB Vermögensverwaltungs AG (MRB) and GenTwo Digital. The portfolio is being made investable through an Actively Managed Certificate (AMC). The AMC is Swiss-compliant security with Swiss ISIN code and fully bankable and transferable.
MRB and CV VC offer qualified investors, including institutional investors like asset managers, banks and corporates, as well as family offices, the opportunity to participate in its continuously growing portfolio. The AMC is based on CV VC’s ecosystem and Blockchain investment expertise and makes the Crypto Valley and its promising startups an investable asset.
Focus on “Technologies for Tomorrow”
The investment portfolio will focus on what CV VC considers “Technologies for Tomorrow”: end-markets and applications that are expected to grow over-proportionally in the future driven by today’s socio-economic trends. As such, the industry experts will focus on six verticals: Future of Work, E-Commerce & Logistics, Lifestyle & Health, Security & Identity, Education & Science and Finance & Investing. Blockchain technology is expected to play a catalyst role in driving innovative solutions across all of these sectors.
CV VC’s startup portfolio will continuously grow, and the investors will actively benefit from CV VC’s investment strategy, Blockchain know-how and incubation program. AMC investors will obtain diversified exposure in applications based on the technology megatrend Blockchain through an early-stage venture capital investment approach.
“With the AMC, qualified investors obtain access to the Crypto Valley, the emerging Blockchain technology and a diverse range of applications across sectors that are expected to grow significantly in the future. Together with our partners, we turn promising startup companies from Crypto Valley into an investable asset class. Qualified investors will benefit from CV VC’s expertise, investment strategy, broad existing portfolio and attractive investment pipeline, which is constantly being complemented by Blockchain startups from around the world,” says Olaf Hannemann, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer CV VC.
MRB proven asset and strategy partner of the “old world”
Blockchain has long since arrived in the economy and is one of the major drivers of digital change. The technology is still young, despite the market potential of 3 trillion dollars. Not surprisingly, the established and renowned asset management experts at MRB Vermögensverwaltungs AG recognize the large potential and are partnering with CV VC to realize the new AMC. The cooperation between CV VC and the Swiss asset management firm MRB also shows that the old world of traditional finance and the new Blockchain-based world are increasingly growing together.
“MRB considers the potential of Blockchain technology to be significant. Working with CV VC on a project that aims to provide investors with access to companies that are expected to become a leading player in their technology niche over the coming years is extremely exciting,” states Markus Töllke, CEO of MRB Vermögensverwaltungs AG.
GenTwo Digital the enabler of the combination between the old and the new world
Specialized providers such as GenTwo Digital, securitization expert and bridgebuilder, connecting the well-established financial market with the new-emerging digital assets world, are becoming increasingly important. It is their expertise of the established financial products which enables them to transform the potential of new technologies such as Blockchain into a valuable asset. The result is that new values and growth potentials for the traditional as well as the newly emerging financial market and its participants are created in equal measure.
Philippe A. Naegeli, Co-founder, and CEO of GenTwo Digital on CV VC: “CV VC is one of the guardians and core member of the Crypto Valley ecosystem that not only combines extraordinary experience in their field.CV VC grant exclusive access to this unique startup landscape. We are proud to partner with CV VC to make this unique universe of assets accessible for investors.”
