Ugo Bechis, HighCastle Advisor who is also an independent adviser of Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), and Co-Chair at Lafferty Brexit Council for Cards and Payments, comments on AIM token sale:
“One of the challenges of blockchain-based solutions is to fit their digital advanced features into established market practices and regulations tailored to the present. The HighCastle management addressed such a challenge with an open approach which combines its own internal digital and crypto expertise with contributions of professionals and advisers who have experienced the transformation of established practices into digital ones. The HighCastle solution aims at closing the gap between the existing alternative investment opportunities and the complexity of their trading and access by crypto and fiat investors in different markets - potentially trillions of dollars private placement deals worldwide to be closed finally online”.
During the last 18 months, HighCastle marketplace has been developed by the team of experts in the capital market, banking, crypto, and programming, and our supervisory board includes honored professionals with more than 30 years of bulk capital markets and investment banking experience each.
With HighCastle’s revolutionary Smartnote solution and Distributed Ledger Technology, it tends to achieve liquidity for private securities market, the same as liquidity was achieved earlier by predecessors in other market segments, i.e. p2p lending, now a multi-billion USD companies. HighCastle marketplace enables investors to diversify their portfolio, and resell their investments (private shares, bonds, loans) whenever they wish, trade any private or public security crossborder in fiat and cryptocurrencies.
The majority of the proceeds received after the token sale closing on February 25, 2018, will be dedicated to the development of secondary market infrastructure, portfolio management tools, geographical expansion and legal compliance of the HighCastle investment platform with the regulation of UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
