“Bridging the gap between Digital Assets and Capital Markets”

Digital transformation is a strategic imperative for financial institutions.

Blockchain technology allowed for a new capital market infrastructure and a new asset class to emerge. Governments and regulators built a regulatory framework enabling market participants to leverage the characteristics of blockchain (transparency, efficiency and immutability), while central banks experiment Central Bank Digital Currencies. SG-Forge allows financial institutions, public entities and corporates to issue, invest and manage financial instruments registered on public blockchains.
