GenTwo and issuance.swiss, powered by Apex Group, Forge Strategic Partnership for Digital Assets AMC and ETP Issuance

13 June 2024

GenTwo, the leading Swiss fintech and pioneer in the use of Actively Managed Certificates ("AMCs"), and issuance.swiss, an innovative exchange-traded products ("ETPs") provider powered by Apex Group, today announce a strategic partnership to leverage their respective expertise for the development and issuance of pioneering ETPs and AMCs.

Under the terms of the partnership, issuance.swiss will in future refer all of its AMC business to GenTwo, while GenTwo will refer its ETP business to issuance.swiss. The result will benefit clients of both companies by expanding the range of digital asset investment vehicles available to them and enabling better portfolio diversification opportunities.

Going forward issuance.swiss clients can leverage GenTwo’s expertise and the technology of its market leading GenTwo Pro platform for the issuance of all their AMCs, providing a more streamlined product issuance process and increasing operational efficiency. GenTwo clients gain the ability to swiftly and quickly issue cryptocurrency ETPs to the market by leveraging issuance.swiss's agile specialist teams and platform. Clients also benefit from issuance.swiss’s infrastructure and European listing capabilities using Apex Group – a global service provider with USD 3.1 trillion in assets under management – as fund administrator.

"We are delighted to join forces with issuance.swiss and Apex Group, allowing our clients to tap into their unrivalled ETP issuance proficiency," said Philippe A. Naegeli, co-founder and CEO of GenTwo. "This marks yet another milestone in our mission to support portfolio diversification through Assetization and allow investors worldwide to invest in what they believe in."

Bruce Jackson, CFA, Chief of Digital Asset Funds and Business at Apex Group, and Director of issuance.swiss added, "GenTwo is a true trailblazer in the AMC space and this is a great opportunity to collaborate with them on unique AMC and ETP offerings, furthering our shared vision of enabling mass customization of financial products. This partnership also embodies the value of our issuance-as-a-service model, streamlining the process for our issuing clients, while delivering this efficiency to their respective client bases as incremental investment return."
