The NYC Security Token Forum brought together key security token experts and Wall Street influencers on April 12. Although primarily focused on key issues facing the security token issuers, the forum also touched on developing a healthy, collaborative ecosystem in the midst of rapid evolution. Invited to the event as a headline speaker, Cadence CEO Nelson Chu partook in a panel moderated by FinTech4Good’s Tony Lau.
Joining them on stage were Stephen Ferrando from KoreConX, Brian Farber from Securitize, and Alex Shkor from DEIP. Speaking on the advancements in infrastructure, platforms, and protocols for security tokens, the panel thoroughly explored the current STO market from each of their unique perspectives.
While KoreConX and Securitize offer technology platforms that others can issue on, Cadence facilitates the entire process from start to finish. As the only company to oversee their own issuances, Cadence discussed its unique position in the STO space. Nelson was able to provide several counter points while highlighting the value proposition of owning the entire issuance process.
The benefits of this model include being selective about what is listed, securitizing products with known demand, and controlling the originator and investor experience from start to finish. With the STO market heading in a positive direction , Cadence was presented as being well positioned to take advantage of the ever-increasing demand for alternative investments.
