generation of financial products in a context that takes into account all aspects of the
financial market as a whole. Our collaboration will contribute to different interests and lead
to further innovation regarding the overall sector and purposeful growth for our clients.”
GENTWO considers Swiss market conformity to be key factor
GENTWO enables professional investors to securitize bankable and (formerly) non-bankable
assets (private equity, private debt, peer-to-peer lending, art, crypto assets and more) on a
balance sheet-neutral basis. New underlying assets can now be securitized conventionally in
so-called Swiss-compliant financial products with a Swiss ISIN code. It is a relatively new form
of investment product that bridges the gap between the traditional and the new financial
world. Because it has the potential to create added value and growth for the market as a
whole, the regulatory perspective is particularly important.
For GENTWO, Swiss compliancy is a key factor and Nicolas Ramelet is an expert in this core
area relevant to GENTWO. Against this background, his new role within GENTWO's Advisory
Board will be of great benefit to many market participants. The financial solutions company
GENTWO, that specializes in innovative securitization solutions, will thus gain lasting
importance in shaping future market developments.
