VALK partners with Archax to facilitate end-to-end digital issuance and listing powered by Corda.
28th January 2020 – This partnership sees two Corda clients join forces to enable financial institutions to issue and list digital assets on a UK-based exchange. The partnership will not only bring a liquidity venue and gateway to institutions working with VALK, but also provide Archax with a number of digital security offerings from the VALK ecosystem of established and regulated financial institutions.

VALK digitizes the issuance and investment processes of unlisted company shares. Our white-label solution built on Corda automates all of the tasks that are carried out manually today by financial institutions buying or selling unlisted shares. Our solution which is targeted at established and regulated financial institutions (fund managers, asset managers, and investment banks), not only helps them save costs and time, but also improve customer experience and increase deal and trade volume on the unlisted assets they manage and offer to investors. Moreover, being built on Corda, VALK allows for instant settlement on-chain, investing & trading in a secure, compliant and robust environment and interoperability and connectivity with the world’s largest banking DLT ecosystem.
Archax, which plans to launch its exchange in mid-2020, is focused on providing a venue for institutions and professional investors to trade in digital securities. These take real-world assets, such as equity, debt, property, funds, etc., and tokenise them using a blockchain technology. This not only modernises and simplifies the process of raising capital by removing friction and middlemen, but also brings liquidity to currently hard to trade assets through fractional ownership and the creation of secondary markets that trade globally. Ultimately, tokenisation has the potential to disrupt and revolutionise all traditional financial markets too, particularly in the post-trade space.
