GenTwo: Loepfe and Naegeli to launch disruptive FinTech Startup

GENTWO MEDIA RELEASE



Solution for the structuring of financial products of the second generation

The new Zurich based FinTech startup GenTwo Ltd. launches the first financial service for individual securitization of all kinds of assets. With its off-balance-sheet issuance vehicles, GenTwo solves long-term structural problems such as issuer risk, non-transparency and high production costs. By segregating risks into smallest issuers, GenTwo contributes to a stable financial system. Cat Financial Products and Aquila Swissinvest are amongst the first GenTwo clients.



With its new approach, GenTwo solves the problem of conventional structured products, where banking institutions act as issuers and charge high fees in order to meet the regulatory requirements for their risk aggregation. Less risks, lower costs, full transparency GenTwo will democratize financial products issuance. For a fraction of the costs and within only a few days all financial intermediaries are enabled to issue tailor-made products through the specific setup of independent and off-balance sheet issuance vehicles. As opposed to conventional issuers, GenTwo liberates financial products from counterparty risk.

GenTwo will democratize financial products issuance

With its new approach, GenTwo solves the problem of conventional structured products, where banking institutions act as issuers and charge high fees in order to meet the regulatory requirements for their risk aggregation. Less risks, lower costs, full transparency GenTwo will democratize financial products issuance. For a fraction of the costs and within only a few days all financial intermediaries are enabled to issue tailor-made products through the specific setup of independent and off-balance sheet issuance vehicles.

As opposed to conventional issuers, GenTwo liberates financial products from counterparty risk. Furthermore, GenTwo reformed the existing cost structure and eliminated risk premiums, administration fees, and compliance costs. The simple setup and efficient IT systems reduce operating costs to a minimum. Additional cost savings are generated by focusing on qualified investors and private placements. Possible financial products include all kinds of structured products like tracker certificates, e.g. actively managed certificates. Besides these bankable assets, GenTwo also enables a straightforward securitization of nonbankable assets like wine, art and cryptocurrencies or –coins, which up to today was very expensive and dependent on high volumes.

Finally, GenTwo also simplifies fungibility. As all products have a Swiss ISIN, asset managers are able to book them like normal Swiss securities conveniently in their client’s securities deposits.

Solution for all financial intermediaries The founders of GenTwo are the mathematician Patrick Loepfe, former mastermind behind the development and construction of the leading Swiss multi-issuer-platform «deritrade» and Philippe A. Naegeli, who already has built up several finance companies and formerly acted as managing partner at Forstmann & Co. in the USA. After a long testing phase with Cat Financial Products and Aquila Swissinvest, GenTwo now offers its solution with a transparent fee schedule to all financial intermediaries and banking institutions.
