GenTwo is a Zurich-based startup that creates securitisation platforms for asset managers, banks, family offices and venture capital investors, enabling professional investors to easily invest in bankable and previously non-bankable assets. The focus on off-balance sheet investment products solves the problem of declining margins and growth barriers for many financial market participants. GenTwo Digital, the company’s subsidiary based in Zug, enables professional investors worldwide and private investors in Switzerland to securitise all digital assets, including crypto assets, in securities on the traditional financial market via their financial intermediaries.
Last year, the startup company gained momentum after increasing the number of new products to 900, corresponding to a 60% increase. According to the company, this growth underpins the ongoing high interest in alternative and digital investments among institutional clients worldwide and GenTwo’s expertise to provide flexible portfolio structuring for investors. “A 2022 highlight was extending the offering for financial intermediaries to retail investors. This move will transform the market for alternative and digital investment products and marks another pioneering achievement for GenTwo”, said Patrick Loepfe, Founder and Chairman of GenTwo’s Board. the
The products issued on its platform recorded over USD 1.1 billion in new inflows, resulting in a surge in assets under services growth to USD 2.5 billion as of today, despite the challenging market environment in 2022. Similarly, the customer base grew by 50% in Switzerland and 100% internationally. “We are currently servicing clients in over 25 countries”, says Philippe A. Naegeli, Co-founder and CEO of GenTwo. The company attributes its success to its diverse workforce, comprising 70 employees of 21 nationalities.
For 2023, GenTwo has planned further product advancements and accelerating international growth strategy by further internationalising its customer base, onboarding more financial institutions onto its platform, and growing its ecosystem for investors and innovators.
