Aequitec closes first financing round

Aequitec automates the work processes of corporate actions based on a digital share register. The company has successfully completed its first round of financing with additional private investors as part of the investment by F10 Investment AG.

Founded 2020 in Zurich by an experienced team, Aequitec is developing a platform for growth-oriented companies to further automate corporate processes. In doing so, the still paper-based share registers are transferred to a modern software application in order to always handle the company processes in exact accordance with the ownership structure.

"At F10 Investment, we like to see our investments set up professionally from the start and therefore encourage our investments to use a professional solution like Aequitec early on," says James Sanders, Managing Director of F10 Investment AG.

Key shareholders are the Swiss startup accelerator F10, as well as its members the SIX Group and Generali Insurance. Furthermore, the Swiss scale-up Deon Digital has taken a stake in the company. "Our investors' trust in our solution shows that the topic of corporate governance continues to grow in importance and that we can offer our customers the simplest possible solution for handling corporate actions," says Aequitec CEO Johannes Schneebacher. "Our platform promotes the necessary digitisation of corporations and the funding from our investors is confirmation of this."

Aequitec’s platform offers corporate clients an automation of the processes for corporate actions. The individual process steps are linked to the company's share register. The Aequitec application can manage both intermediary-administered book-entry securities via the SWIFT messaging system and new types of register value rights ("tokenised shares").

In addition, the mobile-first application provides easy and user-friendly access to these workflows on iOS, Android or in the web browser, offering shareholders a modern application to interact with the company, for example in the context of electronic participation in general meetings.
