In what is becoming a common theme in the industry, this STO is being brought to investors by none other than Securitize. This issuance platform is fast becoming an industry favourite, as they have successfully helped various companies throughout the tokenization process, to date.
Upon announcing the launch of their STO, RISE CEO, Stefan Tittel, had the following to say on the event. He stated,
“The RISE STO is a one-time opportunity for investors to benefit from the fundamental shifts in a trillion-dollar market. The future of investment management lies in artificial intelligence. The flood of data on the financial markets is continuously increasing, while markets are changing more rapidly…The replacement of manual trading by an automated, data-driven algorithm will be breathtakingly rapid. The use of computers running at billions of times higher processing capacity simply leads to continuously better results in the global financial markets, as in all other areas of life. We believe that in the future, the most successful asset managers will be technology companies. At the same time, our approach is fully in line with the German tradition of engineering; we industrialize the invention process of trading models with our software.”
“RISE has an ambitious goal – to revolutionize the trillion-dollar asset management industry with our AI-based technology. The STO offers investors the opportunity to participate in the success of AI technology in the financial industry, with a repayment claim, profit share and an additional entrepreneurial opportunity to participate in an exit. This will enable us to link future technology with an exciting investment model…I am optimistic that within the next five years up to $12 billion in institutional capital will be able to flow into trading strategies using RISE technology. Which would still be a negligible part of the market.”
