Security token platform integrates blockchain technology to improve speed and reduce costs


Securitize, one of the most successful and recognized companies in the security token space, with currently more than 150 customers and 50,000 investors currently using its issuance and compliance platform for digital securities has integrated with Avalanche, a highly-scalable Layer 1 blockchain platform. This collaboration aims to revolutionize blockchain-based financial services by significantly reducing time and costs for issuers. By leveraging Avalanche’s capabilities, Securitize’s platform now allows issuers to manage and issue private securities through security tokens at a fraction of the traditional cost and time.

Through lower costs, Securitize makes this market more accessible to investors thanks to lower investment threshold, in addition to facilitating onboarding and compliance. Tokenization also allows to increase liquidity of the underlying assets. Securitize’s integration with Avalanche marks a milestone in its journey to digitize private market securities and could be a catalyst for broader adoption of blockchain technology in financial markets.


As of 2023, the private capital markets are valued at $11.7 trillion, according to McKinsey, while the digital securities market has a market capitalization of only $500 million. This disparity indicates a significant opportunity for the digitization of these markets. Blockchain technology, with its capacity for the efficient tokenization of assets, offers a promising solution. It is characterized by high transaction speeds and extremely low transaction costs, making it an ideal technology for this purpose


A year ago, Securitize announced it was set to tokenize an interest in $491 billion asset management firm KKR’s Health Care Strategic Growth Fund II (HCSG II). Hamilton Lane, a private market investor with over $832 billion in assets under management will also announced that it will tokenize parts of its funds. This is viewed as a significant breakthrough for individual access to private equity markets.

Securitize has recently started its expansion in Europe and begun issuing tokenized securities in Europe. Securitize has partnered with the Spanish General Secretariat of the Treasury and International Finance (CNMV) to tokenize equity in Mancipi S.A., a Spanish real estate investment trust (REIT) investing in commercial real estate in the Spanish health sector. The project aims to $150 million euros.

On August 2023, Tradeteq has partnered with Securitize to tokenize a U.S. Treasury Yield fund (USTY) on the XDC Network, making it available on the Yieldteq platform for accredited investors. This move democratizes access to U.S. Treasury securities with a focus on enhancing cash management strategies. The collaboration signifies a major stride in offering secure, efficient, and low-cost investment opportunities in digitized financial markets.
